A controversial kiss on the lips by Victoria Beckham

This post is about a kiss. This one to be precise:


If you haven’t seen a single article about this oh so shocking picture, then you are not living on planet earth! So what is it? Victoria Beckham kissing her 5 years old daughter.

Quick analyse more than 584 000 likes on Instagram. Still, some detractors expressed their disgust at this picture. To them, it’s inappropriate to kiss your daughter on the lips.

Hello?! Can’t you see what this picture is about? Well, let me explain. This is a devoted and loving mum who is having a great time with her little one! What is it not to like? I wonder…

How can people even feel the right to disapprove or judge this photo? If you don’t think that it’s an appropriate thing to kiss your children on the lips, then fine, don’t do it then. But please, stop criticising people who decide to do so. It’s just a happy moment. It’s a mum loving her daughter and showing it to the world.

Lets’ be honest, people always find something to condemn when a famous person like Victoria Beckham posts a picture. If she dared to be not so close to her daughter, she would have probably been attacked for being cold or too posh. So whatever she would have done would have been a bad thing.

Leave her (and other parents who kiss their kids on the lips) alone. If anything, it’s an affectionate moment that shows a strong bond between une maman et sa fille! A bond that began when Victoria was pregnant with Harper. A special connection that will never ever stop, whatever happens. Something that only mamans can understand.


A bond that grows, because as soon the baby is born, it’s your ultimate goal to adore, cherish love, protect him/ her. Something that can’t be explained. Something biological, natural even. Something called maternal love.

These two have obviously a very special connection.

You see these pictures? It shows a little girl who is spending some quality time with her mum. A little girl who loves so much her maman that she is mimicking her, becoming a mini Victoria. Nobody can’t dare to tell me that it is not true love.

Furthermore, don’t you know that touch and affection is imperative to a healthy mind? A child feeling loved has way more chance to develop nicely and feel confident in his future life.

Victoria Beckham is not a bad person. She is a proud mummy who truly loves her children! You might say whatever you want about her clothes, her money, her image, but if there is one thing you can’t criticise her about is how much she loves her family. I mean look at the pride in the eyes of this maman?

You can’t fake this kind of love and admiration. Look at her.  What a terrible mum! It’s obvious that she loves her sons… How can people criticise her for that? If anything, it’s a good thing.

Coming back to the so disturbing picture. It’s not like she is kissing her daughter as an adult. She is not having one of these moments.


It’s a mum kissing a little girl and it’s just innocent. How can you see anything else into that? It’s probably an affectionate ritual that will stop when Harper gets older.

I know what you are going to say. I am Frenchie, therefore I feel like being on a revolution to defend the right to kiss on the lips. Pas du tout! I am writing about something else totally different here. I am writing about love and affection. I am talking about that:


A family who truly loves each other. A happy moment that disturbs people and makes them feel like being negative because they are so used to read and see about the atrocity in the world. Victoria kissing Harper on the lips is a moment of love. Like many others.


Just enjoy the happiness and don’t make anything negative of it. For once, just accept that people can love each other.

  1. I have written a similar post and I couldn’t agree with you more. I thought that it was a beautifully captured moment between a mother and her daughter – what could be so bad about that, sometimes I feel people just love to troll!!! #AnythingGoes


  2. Storm in a tea cup. It really isn’t worthy of comment. It’s normally us guys who get in trouble for showing affection to our kids, not the mums! #brilliantblogposts


  3. I just got done reading another post related to this topic. I haven’t been in the news for the past week so I have missed this bullshit and quite frankly glad I did for it pisses me off that people would even have a negative thing to say about a mother showing affection to her child. Shame on them! Thanks for linking with #momsterslink.

  4. Like others have said, how can a mummy kissing her little girl become headline news. It’s crazy. There’s so much interest and negativity… I think the world would be a far better place if that energy was channelled into positive actions and thoughts. Thank you for linking up to the #dreamteam X

  5. Great post. I dont know why other people think it is ok to comment and speculate on a parent kissing their child on the lips. Its a completely ridiculous discussion and debate! Thanks for sharing this on #MarvMondays. Emily

  6. This whole thing is so overdramatic, I honestly can’t believe it’s created such an uproar. This is such an awesome post-yet one that should never have to be created. It makes me sad that these are the things people choose to get up-in-arms over. With all the injustice in the world, everyone wants to bash a loving mother! Quite silly, really. Thanks for sharing!❤ #KCACOLS

  7. I love this post! I kiss Zach on the lips ALL THE TIME!!! I just don’t understand the furore that was caused by such ridiculous comments. The most interesting part for me in this whole post is the picture at the end of David kissing Harper…nobody batted an eyelid at that one!!! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  8. Agreed! I kiss my little bubbys on the lips because it just feels normal to do that. I probably won’t when they’re older, they may find it embarrassing. But while our kids are still little, it’s just how we show them we love them. #bestandworst

  9. I really do believe that the people who have a problem with this and claim how wrong it is, and the people who need help and the ones looking at it in a different/wrong light. It is a wonderful thing having children and an even better thing expressing love to them, and helping them understand they are loved. I mean there comes a certain point in life where they maybe won’t want you to display this kind of affection but whilst they do, embrace it! And well done to her for being a wonderful mother! #ablogginggoodtime
