STRICTLY star Aljaž Škorjanec has been brutally dad-shamed after he shared a sweet clip of him feeding his newborn daughter.
The professional dancer and Janette Manrara welcomed Lyra Rose in July, and the proud dad has been sharing precious moments with fans.
In a recent post he bottle-fed the little one, cradling her head in his hand.
In the background of the picture, he was joined by his niece and nephew, who were also feeding their dolls.
"Morning feeding frenzy," Aljaz captioned the adorable image.
While many cooed over the sweet snap, some fans managed to find fault in his parenting abilities.

"Please cuddle the baby when feeding its supposed to replicate breastfeeding and the baby can feel secure. Holding her by the neck is appalling," one troll wrote.
"Babies should be cuddled when being fed to make it as near breastfeeding experience. Breast is far better but not everyone can do it," another chimed.
However Aljaž's fans jumped to his defence, with one slamming the follower for the harsh criticism.
"Do you think you could possibly be any ruder? Because telling someone their clearly loving and gentle parenting style is "appalling" is seriously up there," they wrote.

"appalling?! Wow way to make a new parent feel good," another chimed.
However, the majority of the comments were full of praise.
Celebrity pal Tess Daly commented: "Top daddy!!"
"Never seen a more devoted father," one fan gushed and a second echoed: "Look at the love & concentration on daddies face".
The It Takes Two host, 39, and the professional dancer, 33, thrilled Strictly fans when they shared their happy news on Instagram earlier this year.
The couple announced they were expecting their first baby back in March.
Aljaz and Janette were engaged in 2015 and then married on July, 15, 2017.
The pair had an astonishing three weddings in various locations, including Slovenia and Disneyland, when they married in the summer of 2017.
They'd been together for six years before that.
Janette quit her job as a professional dancer on Strictly two years ago so she and Aljaz could try for a baby.
Since then she's been made host of Strictly's spin-off show It Takes Two.
The couple told how they were first planning on starting IVF just before Janette fell pregnant naturally.
She said she became "overwhelmed with emotion" at the 12-week scan where the doctor told them their baby is "already dancing".
Janette previously told HELLO! magazine: "For the past couple of years we hadn’t been using protection but nothing was happening, so we thought IVF was the next best thing for us to do," said Janette.

"The doctor said that as soon as I got my period we would start injections, but my period never came.
"I know that IVF can be really strenuous on a woman’s body and there is no guarantee it will work, so to know that this little miracle just came from a wonderful night we had together is amazing."
