A concerned mom has asked for advice after revealing that her ex's new girlfriend is sharing pictures of her daughter on social media.

Any separated parents out there will understand the worry of having their children accepted and loved by their ex's new partner. However, for one mom, she believes her ex's new love interest is crossing a line when it comes to her daughter.

Taking to the popular parenting online platform Mumsnet, one mom started a new forum asking if she was overreacting.

Writing under the username 'Pktjrsmoi', the mom revealed that she has a six-year-old daughter who visits her dad every other weekend.

The mom explains that despite being separated, the pair are still friends and get on well, and both are in new relationships with other people.

Writing in the post, the mom reveals that she has her ex-partner's new girlfriend on Facebook, and she frequently would share pictures of her daughter - either with her father or of the three of them.

"I didn't mind really," the mom says.

However, the doting mother then reveals that the girlfriend has since started sharing pictures of her daughter sleeping, along with captions like "the love of my life" and "the person I love the most in the world".

"Her profile pic is my DD [darling daughter]," the mom writes.

The mom concluded her post by writing: "I didn't say anything, wanted some opinions first. AIBU [Am I being unreasonable] to find it creepy?"

Needless to say, the responses were mixed.

One person responded pointing out that it is a GOOD thing that her daughter is loved, saying: "I think you need to pick your battles. Your ex is with someone who cherishes your daughter and is proud to be in her life - who is being harmed by this?"

However, another person commented on the thread, writing: "That is bloody weird [to be honest], it's like she's playing at being "Mummy". Your DD already has a mum, you!"

Another user agreed, writing: "That's a bit weird if she has only been in a relationship with your ex for a year. Too intense.

"Although it is nice that she cares for your DD, she sounds very OTT in professing her love on Facebook in such strong terms."

Another asked: "What would you prefer - your ex's girlfriend loving your DD (even if it makes you feel a bit threatened), or your ex having a partner who dislikes and resents your daughter and encourages ex to spend less time with his child?"

What are your thoughts on the mom's story? Let us know in the comments section.
