In one of the best moments ever to take place at the Met Gala, co-host Keke Palmer had no idea that she was talking to Brooklyn Beckham, leaving viewers in hysterics.


Tonight, A-listers are gracing the red carpet at the Met Gala 2021, invited by Anna Wintour to showcase their takes on the theme ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’.

While there are several celebrities who won’t be in attendance, from Nicki Minaj to Kylie Jenner, the stars have begun their procession in front of the cameras, including Dune actor Timothée Chalamet and Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy.

One of the earliest arrivals was Brooklyn, the eldest child of David Beckham and Victoria Beckham, with his fiancée Nicola Peltz, who is from New York.

As they began speaking to Keke on Vogue’s Met Gala livestream, the Hustlers star explained that she knew Nicola, giving her a big hug.

However, it appeared that she didn’t know she was speaking to one of the Beckham boys, as she asked Brooklyn: ‘Where are you from?’

Brooklyn explained that he’s from England, although he is living in LA.

People tuning in to watch the livestream couldn’t get over the absolutely incredible moment, particularly as it was basically a recreation of Keke’s viral video when she said the famous words: ‘I don’t know who this man is.’

‘Keke Palmer not knowing who Brooklyn Beckham was and asking where he was from was my favorite and the most American thing that will happen tonight,’ one person tweeted.

‘Keke Palmer interviewing Brooklyn Beckham and asking him where he’s from is sending me,’ another said.

Someone else expressed how big a fan they are of Keke, saying: ‘Keke Palmer having no idea who Brooklyn Beckham is and asking where he’s from!!!! WE DON’T DESERVE HER.’

‘Keke Palmer had NO idea who Brooklyn Beckham was the entire time she was talking to him and it was laugh out loud funny,’ another exclaimed.

In July last year, Brooklyn confirmed that he and Nicola had become engaged.

In a post shared on Instagram, he wrote: ‘Two weeks ago I asked my soulmate to marry me and she said yes xx I am the luckiest man in the world.
