David Beckham‘s 40th birthday this weekend began with the retired soccer star joining Instagram … and ended with a Spice Girls reunion?!

Becks, whose birthday was Saturday, spent the weekend jet-setting with his family to Morocco, where shiny presents were unwrapped before lots of his famous friends came over to celebrate.

He kicked off the #DB40 bash by giving back to his fans, joining Instagram in celebration and posting his very first photo from between the sheets.

“Good morning and hello!” Beckham wrote, wearing an excellent case of bedhead. “It’s great to finally be on Instagram, been a long time coming but I can’t wait to start sharing all my special moments with you. Thank you for all your birthday messages so far. Looking forward to a great day with friends and family x”

The Beckham clan soon made their way to Marrakesh, Morocco, which included all the usual celebratory stuff: a birthday banner, balloons and David Blaine.

Wife Victoria Beckham sent an emoji-ful snap on Instagram late Friday before they flew away.

Son Brooklyn was much more staid: “Happy birthday dad,” he wrote.

It was a good weekend, judging by all of the sun and all of the gifts and all of the stars.

David agreed: “I feel a very lucky man,” he wrote.

But now the question is: Who had the better May 2 birthday – Becks or the royal baby?
