Gabrielle Union zaps mommy shamers
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.”
