Joe Wicks sparked an online storm this week when he shared a photo of his seven-month-old daughter Leni hanging from a pull-up bar at a California beach.
While some of his followers were impressed by the snap, others criticised fitness star Joe, 37.
But it doesn’t seem like he’s particularly fussed, seeing as the doting dad has shared another picture of his older kids – Indigo, three, and Marley, two – hanging from a similar bar.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, a day after uploading the snap of little Leni, Joe shared a throwback photo of Indigo and Marley holding onto a pull-up bar.
Joe could be seen sandwiched between his eldest two children with a grin on his face.
The health guru, who shares Leni, Marley and Indigo with wife Rosie, posted the photo on his Instagram Stories, meaning it was captionless.
However, he used the original photo of his youngest child to declare he was back in the US, captioning the post: ‘Back in Santa Monica.’
Aside from Leni hanging from a pull-up bar, other photos in Joe’s post showed his family larking around in California, where they have a second home.
It didn’t take long for his 4.6million followers to criticise the image of Leni, with one person saying: ‘Is that safe for her shoulders and joints to hang onto bars supporting her own weight like that?’
Another Instagrammer added: ‘That first photo makes me uncomfortable.’
Other alarmed comments included: ‘I hope that’s photoshopped!’ and ‘Is that a normal thing to do with baby? Nope.’
On the flip side, another of Joe’s followers raved: ‘That first picture of Leni is amazing!’
‘Jesus the guy can do what he wants with his children. No one is at harm he would protect them with his life, I’m sure. And he’s a body coach, I’m sure he knows what’s safe and not,’ pointed out someone else.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Joe’s reps for comment.
