Hilary Duff has hit back at critics who labelled her “disgusting” for kissing her son on the lips.

The 30-year-old actress, who is currently pregnant with her second child, has responded to comments she received after posting a picture of her giving her son Luca a peck on the lips.

“I think kissing on the lips should only be for couples I find this very strange [sic]. He looks a little too old for that,” was one such comment on the photo of the pair at Disneyland.


Thankfully, Hilary isn’t about to let a little mummy shaming get in the way of her parenting.

“First of all, he was three,” she told InStyle. “Kiss your kids, and anyone who doesn’t like it can hit unfollow.

“Not interested in what you have to say.”

It isn’t the first time the actress has had to defend the snapshot either.

“I’ve seen stuff on the Internet a couple years back when we were at Disneyland and I posted a picture of Luca and I kissing on the lips,” she previously said.

“People were like, ‘That’s disgusting.’ For anyone commenting that a kiss on the lips with my four-year-old is ‘inappropriate’ go ahead and click a quick unfollow with your warped minds and judgment.”


Hilary also had something to say about strangers who criticise her decision to occasionally give her son a piggy back.

“People can be like, ‘Oh, you’re holding that child? He’s 6.’ Yeah, I swing him over my head, when his legs are tired I hold him—it’s a little hard right now—but yeah, I give piggyback rides. People just have all these crazy judgments, and I think it’s best to not listen and laugh it off,” she hit back.

The actress isn’t the only celebrity who has been shamed for kissing their children on the lips.

Last year Kourtney Kardashian received a backlash for posting a picture of her kissing her son Reign. 

It followed a furore over David Beckham sharing a picture of him giving daughter Harper a peck on the lips. 

David’s wife Victoria Beckham had previously come under fire from the parent police for sharing an image of her also kissing Harper on the lips.
