It feels like it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Pink and even longer since she was involved in any sort of drama, but a recent photo she has posted on Instagram has sparked a backlash from the public.
Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, posted an adorable photo of herself cooking something in a pan on the stove, with her baby strapped cosily to her chest and her six-year-old daughter kneeling on top of the work surface.
But although the snap captured a sweet moment between a mother and her children, many people commented on the photo saying it was “dangerous” for the kids to be so close to the hot stove.
In the photo Pink’s cute daughter Willow can be seen looking down at the food being cooked in front of her, while baby Jameson looks in awe at the food as he leans his head forward to take a closer look. So cute!
The image has nearly 188,000 likes, but one concerned follower wrote: “Dangerous stuff for your kids! Stop doing this!”
While another said: “Nobody has such a hectic lifestyle these days to warrant the baby’s face over the frying pan – cooked on gas- and to top it all off have the other child on the counter (…).”
A third added: “Cute photo but please don’t cook wearing the baby. I’ve read some really horrific stories about terrible accidents that have occurred doing this.”
“The kid needs to be in a highchair surely what if the pan spits at the kid?” said another.
But luckily lots of fans also came to Pink’s defence, as many didn’t understand why people thought the children were in danger, and some praised her multi-tasking skills.
One said: “Love how people are raving at this picture! It’s called being a mum! You multitask! Geez, I’m not even a mother yet but would dread putting any pictures on social media due to judgement whether a celeb or not.”
Another praised the picture and said: “Love that pic Pink !!! All I see is happy mom and happy kids !!! You rock mamma.”
Since that picture she has also posted a photo with her husband Carey Hart, wishing him a Happy Birthday, and her lengthy caption included some loving remarks.
“Happy Birthday My Love. The weight you carry and the strength you have has always fascinated me. What you’ve accomplished in your life (the impossible, many many times) and what you continue to do (invent, live, love, forgive, alchemize) is incredible (…).”
Pink and Carey Hart have been together for 16 years and married for 11 of those. They have had a bit of a rocky relationship as they have publicly taken a couple of breaks and got back together.
But now that the pair have their two children they look stronger than ever!
