It comes after David Beckham was criticised for kissing his daughter on the lips.

The former footballer shared a sweet photo of himself kissing seven-year-old Harper to Instagram this week.

Some fans took issue with the photo, claiming the kiss was "weird".

"I feel like a kiss on the cheek is better than that on the lips. The lips is just weird," said one person.

"She's your daughter... why are you kissing on her lips..?" asked somebody else.

TV host Piers also had a go at David, saying it was "creepy".

"David Beckham obviously posting pictures of his children, whilst then serving the right to respect their privacy. There he is kissing his daughter on the lips," he said on Good Morning Britain.

"I'm sorry, it got a big furore on social media, it’s just weird. Who does that? Who kisses their kids on the lips?"
