We're still catching up on all the details from wedding of the year: Brooklyn Beckham married fiancé Nicola Peltz on 9 April in Palm Beach, Florida - in what was definitely an A-list bonanza. The couple announced their engagement in July 2020, with Brooklyn saying on Instagram, 'I am the luckiest man in the world'. While we eagerly await images of Nicola's Valentino wedding dress, here's everything we know about the newest addition to the Beckham family...

What does Nicola Peltz do?

So, you've probably seen Nicola on screen before as she's a successful American actress. She started acting at 13, but her breakthrough role came when she played Katara in the 2010 film The Last Airbender. From 2013 to 2015, she co-starred as Bradley Martin in the A&E drama series Bates Motel. In 2014, she starred as Tessa Yeager in the fourth Transformers film, Transformers: Age of Extinction. More recently, she starred in 2018 horror film Our House and Netflix's 2020 Christmas rom-com Holidate, alongside Emma Roberts.

Nicola Peltz will play Dorothy Stratten, a Playboy Playmate in Hulu's upcoming series Immigrant, which tells the true story of how the male strip group The Chippendales were formed.

Nicola has also written and directed a film called Lola James, which is currently in post-production. The film synopsis on IMDb reads: 'Lola James works to save enough money to get her little brother, Arlo, out of their toxic home. Arlo keeps her hopeful, until one tragic night, when her whole world gets uprooted. From that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.' Nicola also stars as the title character.

Who are Nicola Peltz's parents?

Nicola comes from a very, very wealthy background. Her father Nelson is an American billionaire businessman - he has a net worth of $1.7 billion, which makes him the 432nd richest person in the US. Claudia Heffner, Nicola's mother, is a former fashion model. They have eight children together, and Nelson has another two children from his first marriage. Nicola's siblings include entrepreneur Brittany Peltz, former professional ice hockey player Brad Peltz and actor Will Peltz (who will appear with her in her upcoming movie Lola James).

Who is Nicola Peltz's father, Nelson Peltz?

Yep, as mentioned before, Nelson Peltz is one very, very wealthy man. He made his money as being a founding partner of Trian Fund Management, an alternative investment management fund based in New York. As well as this, he's also the non-executive chairman of Wendy's Company, The Madison Square Garden Company and Sysco. He's been married three times - and Claudia Heffner, Nicola's mum, was his third wife.

Who is Nicola Peltz's sister, Brittany Peltz?

Nicola's sister Brittany played a big part in her wedding. The former professional figure skater, who is currently pregnant with her fourth child, was spotted in a navy, strapless maxi dress before the ceremony. Her two daughters, Eva and Lila Rae, were flower girls at the wedding. She is married to Franz Buerstedde, who is managing director at a global private equity firm, and the pair also have a three-year-old son, Phoenix Blu. Brittany runs a childrenwear company, Leah & Rae, which she founded in 2018, and is made in female-run factories.

How old is Nicola Peltz?

Nicola was born on January 9 1995, which by our calculations, means she's 27. If you're into star signs, this makes her a Capricorn. Brooklyn is a few years younger, aged 23.

What is Nicola Peltz net worth?

Nicola is worth a lot of money, and it's thought her and Brooklyn have signed a huge pre-nup. The actress has obviously made a lot of money from acting - from being in Bates Motel and Transformers - and modelling, but it's worth bearing in mind that her family is incredibly rich. Anyway, according to Celebrity Net Worth, she's worth an eye-watering $50 million (£38 million).

Is Nicola Peltz on Instagram?

Yes! If you follow her on Instagram (@nicolaannepeltz), then expect many, many loved up photos of her and Brooklyn. Don't say we didn't warn you.

A few months later, they then go Instagram official in January 2020 with this sweet snap. Brooklyn simply captions it with a red heart emoji. That month they're also spotted out on a date in LA.

Lockdown can make or break a relationship, but quarantining together in New York didn't harm Brooklyn and Nicola's relationship. The pair stayed in New York in April 2020, while the rest of the Beckhams stayed in the UK.

Brooklyn announced the pair's engagement, after their whirlwind romance, in July 2020. Sharing a gorgeous pic of the pair, where Nicola is wearing a dress designed by Brooklyn's mum, Victora. 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. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day ❤ufe0f I love you baby xx'

Rumours were flying in October 2020 that Nicola and Brooklyn had already tied the knot when Nicola shared a photo of Brooklyn wearing a gold 'wedding band' on his ring finger to her Instagram stories. The internet also got itself into a tizzy when Nicola captioned a photo of the pair with 'baby b' leading people to think she was pregnant - we're certain it was just a nickname though. In the same month, it also looked like Brooklyn had revealed a massive tattoo on his neck - which looked very much like Nicola's eyes. That's some Zayn Malik/Gigi Hadid level of dedication.

They couldn't be more in love - as this picture shows - but the couple are still being sensible. Reports in December 2020 said that they're planning to sign a prenup before their marriage to protect their fortunes. The actress is from a family thought to be worth three times more than Victoria and David's wealth, and Nicola herself is thought to be worth $50 million dollars, meanwhile Brooklyn is believed to be worth $10 million. Probably a sensible idea for them both, then.
