Married at First Sight star Jephte Pierre is not letting the coronavirus ruin his bonding moment with daughter Laura. The husband of Shawniece Jackson finally got to spend time with the little girl outdoors after weeks of isolation at home. But the father-daughter outing sparked an uproar from fans after they spotted something “dangerous”.
Married at First Sight: Jephte Pierre Shares Sweet Bonding with Daughter
Looks like Jephte Pierre is embracing fatherhood even more. The Married at First Sight alum continues to grow a strong bond with daughter Laura, which fans really admire. When the family went outside, Shawniece Jackson’s husband shared one of the many bonding moments with his little girl.
Jephte Pierre took Laura out for the first time since being put on lockdown. And it seems like the cute toddler had a blast being outside with her dad. In the photo, Jephte carried Laura over his shoulders as they roam the street. It’s definitely a sweet moment to behold. However, the seemingly innocent photo drew negative remarks, questioning the kid’s safety.
Fans Express Concern Over Jephte’s ‘Dangerous’ Day Out with Laura
Some commenters called out Jephte Pierre for supposedly putting Laura in a scary and dangerous situation. They point out that the Married at First Sight celeb appears to be riding a bicycle while his daughter sits on his shoulders. At first glance, it looks like Shawniece’s hubby is driving the bike with one hand while the other holds Laura in the ankle. Some also noticed that the kid is not wearing a helmet or any gear to protect her in case she falls.
However, it is worth noting that the photo did not really show Jephte on a bicycle as it was cut at the lower part. Others suggest that Jephte is likely only sitting on the bike for a picture and that he’s not really driving it. Some say he knows what he’s doing and that he will never expose his daughter in any form of danger.
A photographer that works with Soap Dirt looked at the photo and said the bike was not in motion. It appears to be a staged photo and no more dangerous than any other time a parent puts their child onto their shoulders.
So far, the Married at First Sight couple has yet to react to the bashing and dad-shaming online.
Married at First Sight: Shawniece & Jephte Say Daughter Changed Their Relationship
Meanwhile, Shawniece Jackson and husband Jephte Pierre recently opened up about Laura and how she changed their married life. Fans of Married at First Sight know that the two didn’t hit off right away after tying the knot. However, after welcoming baby Laura shortly after marriage, things changed dramatically.
In an interview, Shawniece said Laura is the reason why they became a family. The doting mother added that their child has always been the “bigger priority” even if it makes it “harder to equally balance everything”. Jephte, on the other hand, considered Laura the “biggest and greatest blessing of all”. He said she made him “mature a lot faster” — something he never saw himself doing prior to having a family.
And while their family life has been amazing, the Married at First Sight lovers said they “don’t recommend having a baby that fast”. They said it’s better to know each other first before making the big decision of having a child.
