“Eww sorry I’m old fashioned it looks like they making out,” one Instagram user wrote, while another said, “It’s nice but you’re not supposed to kiss you’re children on the lips. I’m not trying to be rude but it’s true.”

Showing a maturity older than his 13 years, Romeo – the middle child in the Beckham clan – reacted to the comments by sharing a snap of mum Victoria kissing him on the cheek, along with the caption ‘I still love my my mum, kisses’ with an adorable ‘feeling loved’ heart emoji.
