Victoria And Harper Beckham Spark A Parenting Debate

It was a very special weekend for the Victoria and David Beckham… their daughter Harper turned five!

Yep. It really has been half a decade since the couple welcomed their fourth child into the world.

So while we sat around feeling insanely old, Victoria celebrated the special occasion by sharing a super-cute Instagram snap of herself and her little girl.

In the photo, we saw 42-year-old Posh planting a kiss on Harper as they relaxed in a serene-looking swimming pool. Adorable, huh?

She’d captioned the image: ‘Happy Birthday baby girl. We all love you so much X @davidbeckham @brooklynbeckham kisses from mummy X.’

> It was *this* image that got people talking

 

Of course, the majority of her followers were quick to send sweet messages to the birthday girl.

Comments included: ‘Beautiful picture of a mother and daughters love happy 5th birthday Harper x,’ and: ‘Happy birthday!! And what a beautiful photo showing a great bond you have with your daughter [sic].’

But while the shot was clearly popular (it’s been liked by over half a million people), it still ended up causing a bit of controversy.

Why’s this? Because some people didn’t like the fact that Vic was kissing her little girl on the lips.

One Instagram user wrote: ‘Eww sorry I’m old fashioned it looks like they making out,’ while another said: ‘A lot of kids get cold sores from their parents kissing them on the mouth.’
