Piers Morgan took to Twitter to share a picture of American model and actress Emily Ratajkowski and her son, drawing attention to the way she was holding the two-month-old baby. The model, who turns 30 today, could be seen posing for a picture on the eve of her birthday in matching swimwear with her son.
“That’s not how you hold a baby,” Piers blasted online, when he shared the image with his 7.9 million followers.
“@emrata – and your millions of followers shouldn’t be encouraged to do the same,” he continued.
“Happy to give you some tips if you need them,” Piers went on to add.
Many took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts with some agreeing with Piers and others blasting him for his comments.

“Agreed, if you want to pose for a photo which is all about you then put the little one somewhere safe and comfortable…,” one Twitter user wrote.
“She looks totally disinterested in the comfort of the baby – just an accessory to match her bikini,” another added.
“If it was a picture of a woman on a council estate doing this all the people defending her would be tagging the NSPCC,” a third remarked.
Some users jumped in to defend the model.

“To be fair, babies are squiggly. The child could have moved into this position after being picked up,” they wrote.
Others felt Piers should not be intervening.
“Leave her alone. If you don’t like it move on or report it,” one frustrated follower added.
“You should know about babies, with you being one of the biggest,” another chipped in, adding an emoji of a baby bottle.
“You can also teach the baby how to storm off properly when he doesn’t get his own way,” someone else added.

Emily welcomed her son Sylvester Apollo Bear, who she shares with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, into the world on March 8.
It is not the first time father-of-four Piers has offered baby advice this year.
Last month, the former Good Morning Britain presenter revealed he’d given parenting tips to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
The former is expecting a baby later this year with her husband Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi, while her younger sister recently welcomed her first child with spouse Jack Brooksbank.
