“We’re here for a good time, not a long time,” the 24-year-old responded to a Monday, June 24, Instagram message saying that the spicy snacks “send multiple children to the emergency room each year.”

This came after the California native shared a video of Mia in her mom’s arms, digging into a bag of Hot Cheetos. “Mondays,” Geary captioned the upload. She went on to share footage on her Instagram Story of the toddler standing and reaching for more, writing, “Definitely my child.”

The toddler isn’t the only one who loves the popular junk food. In September 2018, rapper Lil Xan was hospitalized after eating Hot Cheetos and vomiting “a little blood” — but he enjoyed another bag just one day later.

A spokesperson for Cheetos maker Frito-Lay told Us Weekly at the time: “At Frito-Lay, we aim to delight our consumers and food safety is always our number one priority. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos meet all applicable food safety regulations, as well as our rigorous quality standards. That said, we realize some consumers may be more sensitive to spicy foods than others and may choose to moderate consumption or avoid spicier snacks due to personal preference.”

As for Mia, the little one developed a taste for the snack food early on. Geary and her fiancé, Robin Thicke, welcomed her in February 2018. She became an older sister 12 months later when Lola arrived.

Weeks before Geary gave birth, the Grammy winner, 42, told Us exclusively how he was spoiling his pregnant fiancée before their second baby’s arrival. “I try to dote on her, but it’s never enough,” he said. “You can never dote too much.”

Thicke added, “When you already have a baby to take care of, you got plenty to do. So the closer we get now, we’re getting really excited and anxious. We’re very ready for this new baby to come.”
