Nana Ama McBrown on Fox5 DC

Last week, sighted a video of Ghanaian actress Nana Ama McBrown having a French kiss with her daughter, Baby Maxin, at her first birthday party.

The video which was initially captured by Ghanaian blogger,, has gained massive traction on social media and has garnered over 1.5 million views on Twitter alone.

And now, the video has been featured on American television, Fox5 DC.

But it appears guests on one of its talk shows weren’t pleased with what they saw in the video.


“I don’t wanna see it – I don’t like this at all,” a female guest said. “I don’t wanna really judge any parent. I would never in a million years do that with my child.”

“I don’t know why you needed to do that. It’s way too far. You can show affection in a lot of different ways. That for me if over the line,” she added.

The second female guest also stated that: “It’s hard to watch…Obviously, she loves her child but it’s a little too much.”

The third guest on the show, who is also a female, said she kisses her children on their lips but not to that extent.


“I still kiss my kids on the lips…but when you go for a deep kiss like that with a one-year-old child, I can’t imagine.”

The video has been met with a mixed reaction on Twitter. While some call the act normal, others claim it went overboard.
