David Beckham shares picture kissing daughter on lips a year after being trolled

David Beckham kissed his daughter on the lips as they enjoyed some quality time together, and later shared the divisive snap to social media.

The erstwhile footballer embarked on the ultimate wintertime activity with eight-year-old Harper: ice skating.

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Thanks to @nhm_icerink for looking after us today,” he captioned the snap, with others showing Harper skating at the rink near the Natural History Museum in London.

The 44-year-old has been criticised on social media in the past for kissing his daughter on the lips, with people being divided on whether to consider it sweet or creepy.

"Ok dude, kissing your daughter on the lips has always been weird... and more as she gets older," wrote one Instagram user, while another defended his choice writing, "It’s so sweet and soooo warm to see this!”

"So beautiful pal. My daughter kisses me on lips but because I'm not a celeb I'm not scrutinised like u [sic]" wrote another.

Beckham, and his wife Victoria, have been open about the fact that they want their youngest child to pursue ice skating."Victoria thinks Harper is so talented at skating – she's bought her a pair of posh skates, a selection of ice dancing dresses and has even signed her up for lessons…” a source told The Sun. The teacher says she's a 'natural' so Victoria is keen for the whole family to get behind Harper's new interest and encourage her to pursue it."
