Jude Bellingham is at the top of the world. At 20, the English superstar has already achieved so much in his career.
From making a breakthrough at his boyhood club Birmingham City, to rising up the footballing ladder at Borussia Dortmund, to breaking records at Real Madrid, Bellingham has had quite a remarkable journey so far and one can only imagine the feats the boy wonder might go on to achieve in future.
Earlier this week, Bellingham was in Turin, Italy, to attend an awards ceremony where he was awarded the Golden Boy 2023. He won the award with a record points tally and also became the first-ever Real Madrid player to win the accolade that rubber stamps one’s credentials as the best young player in the world.
Before the ceremony, though, the Golden Boy recipient was captured sharing an emotional moment with his father, Mark Bellingham.

Jude met his father Mark after a long time in what was a sweet reunion between the father and son duo. Jude stays with his mother Denise in Madrid, while Bellingham Sr. stays in Sunderland with Jude’s younger brother Jobe, who is making quite a name for himself in the Championship with Sunderland.
The warm embrace between the father and son has been talked about by a lot of people on social media. Lewis Steele, a football reporter for the Daily Mail, took to X (formerly Twitter) to take a funny take.
“Must have been an intense game of rock paper scissors to decide who lives in Madrid and who lives in Sunderland,” Steele tweeted.
The fact that Jude and Jobe’s parents stay in different countries to support the footballing careers of their sons proves that a family’s support is one of the most important things for a footballer when growing up.
It must be hard for the parents to live separately, but also for both Jude and Jobe to live without one parent. However, it’s the mental toughness of the Bellingham brothers, especially Jude, which makes them unique.
With 15 goals from 17 games and a litany of records to his name already, Jude will hope to win silverware in his debut season at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The fans will, moreover, hope that the new #5 of Madrid keeps up his goal-scoring heroics and leads the team as they fight for all major trophies in the second half of the season.
