Social media users have taken issue with a sweet snap of Rebel Wilson holding her baby daughter.
The Pitch Perfect actress, 42, welcomed a daughter last year with fiancée Ramona Agruma, with the little girl arriving via surrogate.
Rebel has launched herself into mum life, regularly sharing updates with fans on social media as she and Ramona raise their daughter together.
Australian actress Rebel has been ‘mum-shamed’ in the past, including for going to an event in the days after her daughter was born.
Now the star is being targeted again – this time for the way she held baby Royce in a photo.
The family are currently enjoying a sun-kissed island holiday with friends, with Rebel taking to Instagram to share a snap of her holding up her daughter to the camera.
Some took issue with how a beaming Rebel was holding Royce, whose face was covered in the snap by a sunshine emoji, with one complaining she was ‘holding that baby as if she finds it offensive.’
Another wrote in a comment section as per the Mail Online: ‘Has the nanny not shown her how to hold the baby yet because these look very awkward and I feel badly for that baby.
One joker asked why the star was ‘socially distancing her own baby,’ while another quipped it looked like how a person holds a baby when they’ve filled their nappy and you’re ready to hand them back to the parent.
However others jumped to Rebel’s defence, with one calling for commenters to ‘leave the girl alone.’
‘Baby is being held securely, she was showing her [off] to the camera probably.’
Another said: ‘To publicly shame Rebel for the way she’s holding her daughter is shameful. She’s not hurting her, she’s not hanging her by a foot, she’s holding her securely maybe she was facing her baby out quickly for the photo.’
Others complained they couldn’t see baby Royce’s face, with Rebel – like many other celebrity mums – generally not showing her daughter’s face on social media to protect her.
Later, though, Rebel did give fans a first glimpse at her daughter, as she shared a gorgeous video of the island on which the family were holidaying.
The clip begins with Rebel waving and holding her baby, before the camera, attached to a drone, zooms up to show bright blue skies, the ocean and the tiny island in full.
Rebel and Ramona were engaged in February of this year after the actress proposed during a trip to Disneyland.
The proposal was a fitting one, as Rebel described Ramona as her ‘Disney princess’ when she came out and revealed their relationship.
Sharing an adorable selfie of the pair cosying up, with beaming smiles on their faces, Rebel wrote last year: ‘I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess 💗🌈💗 #loveislove.’
Rebel announced the arrival of her ‘beautiful miracle’ Royce in November last year, saying she was ‘forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are).
‘This has been years in the making…but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care.
‘Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!’
