Sports star Sonny Bill Williams, 32, is currently holidaying in the Cook Islands with his wife Alana Raffie and two young children.
But the rugby union and league player has come under fire from fellow parents after he shared an image of his three-year-old daughter, Imaan, in the backseat of a convertible.
Little Imaan is wearing a seatbelt in the image. Still, many parents were concerned she wasn’t in a car seat, as per Australia’s national guidelines for child restraints.
According to the Kidsafe, children must be restrained in a forward facing child restraint until they are at least four years of age.
It’s recommended that after outgrowing the restraint, children should use a booster seat until they are at least eight to 10 years old to ensure the proper use of seat belts.

Some of Williams’ followers left comments accusing the 32-year-old of putting his young daughter in danger.
“Car seat is needed for little ones Sonny, never travel without them,” one woman wrote.
“Beautiful picture but please make sure that seatbelt is on your beautiful baby girl properly…Or use a proper car seat,” another commented, while another just said, “No child seat you serious?”
