Hilary Duff is coming under fire for piercing her 8-month-old daughter’s ears.
Eagle-eyed followers of the star noticed the small studs on Banks‘ ears in a recent photo shared by Duff. In the pic, Hilary smiles as the baby joyfully pulls at her sunglasses, with the small studs barely noticeable.
It seems that the earrings are a recent addition since the baby isn’t sporting any jewelry in photos shared from late May.
While some people were quick to compliment Banks on her adorable new piercings, others felt the need to mommy-shame the actress for her decision. “I can’t fathom why you would you think it’s okay to have your daughters ears pierced. Causing her a tremendous amount of pain and discomfort,” one Instagram user commented.
Some critics even shared that they plan to unfollow her because of the “pain” she inflicted on Banks.
The Lizzie McGuire star is probably not paying much attention to the haters anyways. She’s too busy enjoying life with her newly-expanded family-of-four, especially considering the many milestones there are to celebrate with a baby in the home.
Hilary and her son Luca recently celebrated Banks’ new ability to crawl in a cute Instagram video. “We got a mover,” Duff captioned the swoon-worthy moment. In the video, Luca cheers on his little sister as she determinedly crawls towards him.
With a loving and supportive family like this, it’s hard to believe that a tiny ear piercing could put a damper on Banks’ bubbly personality.
