Nicola nailed summer chic in a floral halter-neck mini dress with Brooklyn sticking to a simple ensemble of a pastel pink T-shirt and shorts. 

Having arrived in Italy on Monday, the group have been enjoying what the Southern-Italian region has to offer – known for its striking whitewashed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and miles of Mediterranean coastline.

The family have been staying in a farmhouse villa in Borgo Egnazia – a favourite spot for the rich and famous.

The castle-like, candle-lit village features a Michelin-starred restaurant, a championship golf course, two beach clubs with private beaches – one sandy, one pebbly – and a spa that bases its treatments on ancient Puglian rituals. 

And Brooklyn and Nicola continued to take advantage of the local landscapes as they snuggled up on a sun-lounger at the beach.   

It is the first tie the pair have been spotted since announcing their upcoming nuptials. 

It was recently reported that the couple were planning a Jewish wedding amid claims his family is set to make millions. 

Brooklyn is said to have told pals that the ceremony will involve marrying under a chuppah (wedding canopy) and signing a ketubah (wedding contract) as both Brooklyn’s great grandfather and Nicola’s billionaire father are Jewish.

Yet the revelation comes as Brooklyn’s ex Lexy Panterra claimed that he is ‘too immature’ for marriage and admitted that she was shocked at the engagement.

A source told the Mirror: ‘Nicola was raised in a Jewish household and while her mother Claudia isn’t Jewish, her father Nelson is devout. They raised their children to uphold traditional Jewish values…

‘When they ­started talking about their future, Brooklyn agreed to a Jewish wedding. While it won’t be orthodox, or super religious, it will likely contain ­traditional elements.’ 

Brooklyn and Nicola are thought to be planning to splash £4million on two different ceremonies to mark their marriage in 2021.

The nuptials are said to be taking place in both the UK and Florida, with the couple allegedly expected to sign pre-nups at the behest of Nicola’s father, Nelson Peltz, 78, who is said to be worth £1.34 billion.

The source added: ‘They’re not sure if they’ll have a rabbi conduct both ceremonies, but Brooklyn has already told Nicola he’ll let her take the reins – joking how he’s already under the thumb.’ 

It is thought that Brooklyn’s footballing father David is also enthusiastic about the prospect and hopes to recite one of the Hebrew blessings at the ceremony.

Brooklyn’s representatives declined to comment to MailOnline. Nicola’s representatives have been approached for comment. 

It comes amid reports that David, 45, and Victoria, 46, stand to make millions off the back of Brooklyn’s upcoming vows.

Victoria wrote: 'The MOST exciting news!! We could not be happier that Brooklyn and Nicola are getting married! Wishing you so much love and a lifetime of happiness. We all love you both so much x'

And the couple are said to be hoping to relaunch themselves in America following the cash injection that will come as a result of the high-profile wedding.

They have reportedly already splashed out £19million on penthouse in Miami, which will act as a base for David’s Inter Miami football team as well as the launch of Victoria’s Stateside beauty brand.   

A business insider told The Sun: ‘These are exciting times for David and Victoria. They were always looking to spend more time in the States because of David’s club commitments.

‘But now, with the wedding and Brooklyn moving to the US, they are redoubling their efforts.

‘Victoria has trademarked her brand across the Pond. Like Gwyneth Paltrow, she hopes to corner the lucrative health and wellness market — which is huge over there — with the launch of her anti-ageing serum and various other VB beauty products.

‘And Nicola’s dad is supremely well connected and has offered to help in any way he can.’

But the revelations come after Brooklyn’s ex Lexy Panterra claimed he is ‘way too immature to get married’.

The 30-year-old dancer, who dated Brooklyn for 12 months, spoke of her shock at the engagement and admitted she had doubts about the upcoming nuptials.

She told The Sun: ‘I was pretty shocked and confused when I heard he got engaged. It’s not something anyone was expecting and, honestly, Brooklyn is not ready for that. He is very young and way too immature.

‘I don’t know why he falls in love every few minutes. There is no consistency in his relationships. He has a new chick every month, so it’s surprising he would try to do this.’ 

Brooklyn and Lexy first met at the Coachella festival in 2017 but their romance fizzled out at the end of last year blaming the age gap and long-distance.

She added: ‘We never talked about getting engaged. I would never have considered marrying Brooklyn. For what? There is nothing he could have brought to the table beside his family’s money and I don’t need that.’

Brooklyn took to Instagram last week to announce his engagement to Nicola following reports he had popped the question to his ‘soulmate’. 

Sharing a stunning snap of the couple, 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. I love you baby xx’  

On Thursday it was revealed Brooklyn had gone all out on the engagement ring, with the bling valued in excess of £350,000.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, top gemologist Alexandra Michell from Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn praised the ‘timeless’ diamond ring chosen by Brooklyn for Nicola and believes it is worth more than £350,000.

Prestige Pawnbrokers-She said: ‘Brooklyn has chosen an elegant and classic design with an emerald-cut diamond solitaire set on a very fine band of platinum or white gold.  

‘The central stone is approximately 5cts and appears colourless, and with a classic emerald cut, it is usually a good indication that the diamond is very clean with minimal imperfections. 

‘The emerald cut solitaire style is a timeless classic and has been worn by many celebs over the years from Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor to Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie and Beyoncé. 

‘I believe the retail price for this engagement ring could be in excess of £350,000.’ 

Nicola first revealed her dazzling new ring in the couple’s loved-up engagement announcement.

She has since showed off the diamond in a snap of the couple kissing, as Brooklyn professed his love for her once more.    

In the snap Brooklyn held his hand to the actress’ waist, while she held her ring-clad hand to his face in an intimate snap, taken by his little sister Harper, nine.  

Nicola looked stunning in a flowing yellow dress with frill detailing, while Brooklyn looked handsome in a two-piece navy suit for the engagement snap. 

Brooklyn and Nicola shared identical images on their Instagram pages, as the Bates Motel star admitted she was feeling like the ‘luckiest girl in the world’.

Victoria, who has a net worth of £335 million alongside husband David, is rumoured to be designing one of her future daughter-in-law’s wedding dresses.

She was reportedly overheard telling the bride-to be: ‘It’s your day, we want to make it special… so whatever you want.’  

Brooklyn’s three siblings, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, also took the tour of the carefully landscaped grounds at the £135million resort, which is modelled on a traditional Italian village.

The luxury hideaway is where Madonna spends her summers, famously celebrating her 59th birthday there in 2017, and it was also the venue for the wedding of Justin Timberlake and Hollywood actress Jessica Biel in 2012.
