Brooklyn, 23, married Nicola Peltz, 27, in a lavish ceremony at her family home in Miami on Saturday, and David is said to have 'choked up' as he recalled the day his son was born.

As reported by The Sun, the footballer also called new new daughter-in-law 'incredible' after they tied the knot.

A source said: “David’s speech went on for about five minutes and he looked to shed a tear at one point.

“He was talking about when Brooklyn was born and how he wanted to protect him.

“He said he was sleeping on the hospital floor, holding the door shut because he didn’t want to let anyone get in.

“David got a lump in his throat and had to stop and take a breather to regain his composure, but it was a very sweet speech.”

He also is said to have told Nicola at the wedding pre-party on Friday: “We love you so much. We are excited that you’ll be part of the family.”
