People are saying that Brooklyn Beckham's new girlfriend looks exactly like his mom

Sigmund Freud, the father of modern psychiatry, once theorised that all men are born with something called the Oedipus complex. Put simply, it means that all men inherently want to subconsciously sleep with their own mothers, and select sexual partners who closely resemble the main maternal figure in their lives. This means that there are a lot of men out there who end up marrying women who closely resemble their parent, either in looks or personality.

Today most of Freud's theories about child development and sexual psychoanalysis have been dismissed by modern psychologists as being baseless and lacking evidence. Yet despite this, the Oedipus complex still exists within society's consciousness, and it's mostly used as a pejorative term against momma's boys, rather than a valid diagnosis. Indeed, it's pretty gross to think too hard about the incestuous implications of it all; but that doesn't mean that it doesn't sometimes appear to be valid.

In fact, it seems as though even celebrities aren't immune from displaying this behaviour from time-to-time. You want an example? Well, according to a few social media users, Brooklyn Beckham might be suffering from something of an Oedipus complex. After images emerged of Brooklyn, his mother Victoria Beckham, and his new model girlfriend Hana Cross, a lot of people thought that Hana and his mom looked very similar indeed. The trio was photographed while attending David's Kent and Curwen London Fashion Week Men's presentation at Temple Place on Sunday morning.

Fans immediately took to Brooklyn's Instagram page to comment on his girlfriend's eerie resemblance to his mother.  One person wrote: "She looks like his mom Victoria" while another added: "I thought this was your mother! Defo looks like a younger version of @victoriabeckham," and someone else chimed in "I think she looks like your mom. Beautiful."

Until recently, Brooklyn had been dating Kick-Ass star Chloë Grace Moretz on-off for around two years. However, the couple split up in early 2018. Commenting on the breakup in a recent interview, Moretz stated: "Break-ups are hard across the board, but when every verified account on Twitter posts something about me I get tagged, and every major publication is verified."

She added: "So anytime they post something about a certain relationship it pops up on my phone, which is how I find out about 90 per cent of things. I'm not a big fan of PDAs in general. I personally don't want to see people posted all over my phone making out."

Over the last few months, Brooklyn has also been romantically affiliated with aspiring singer Abi Manzoni and dancer Lexy Panterra. The press has been speculating for weeks about Brooklyn and Hana, but this is the first official confirmation of their relationship. Personally, I don't think that she looks too much like Victoria. This might just be weirdly wishful thinking on some people's part.
