Gabrielle Union zaps mommy shamers

Ottawa Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Ac­tress Gabrielle Union is re­fus­ing to stand for par­ent­ing crit­i­cism on so­cial me­dia af­ter shar­ing a short video of her­self plant­ing kisses on her new­born daugh­ter’s mouth.

The 46-year-old, who wel­comed Kaavia James via a sur­ro­gate mother last month, took to In­sta­gram on Thurs­day to post a clip of the mother-daugh­ter duo en­joy­ing some qual­ity time to­gether in her trailer on the set of her up­com­ing Bad Boys TV spinoff, L.A.’s Finest.

In the footage, Union was shown re­peat­edly lift­ing up her lit­tle girl and peck­ing her on the lips.

How­ever, the sweet video di­vided fol­low­ers as some gushed about the move, while oth­ers urged the ac­tress to stop kiss­ing her baby on the lips to avoid spreading germs.

Union then fired back at the trolls writ­ing, “Hey guys I ap­pre­ci­ate all the con­cern about kisses on the mouth... Kaav is healthy and I don’t even touch her with­out wash­ing and san­i­tiz­ing my­self and ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­one that comes into con­tact with her.”
