David Beckham defends kissing daughter Harper on the lips

David Beckham has received some backlash for posting an Instagram picture of himself kissing his almost six-year-old daughter Harper on the lips, with many people calling it “inappropriate”.

The football legend addressed the controversy during a Facebook Live video last night, and essentially said that he will not apologise for being affectionate with his children…

“I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day,” the father-of-four said.

“I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn’s 18, he might find that a little bit strange.

“But I’m very affectionate with the kids. It’s how I was brought up and Victoria, and it’s how we are with our children.

“We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them.”

Aww, isn’t he the cutest? Do you think kissing his daughter on the lips – and posting the picture – was inappropriate?
