Tweeting a picture of the James Bond actor taking a walk with his newborn daughter strapped to his chest, Morgan wrote: '˜Oh 007.. not you as well?!!!'

He added the hashtag #emasculatedBond.

This sparked criticism from US actor Evans, who questioned why Morgan was commenting on other people's parenting skills.

He said: '˜You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child.

'˜Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside.'

The post was retweeted 24,000 times within three hours.

Morgan replied: '˜Captain America wouldn't wear a papoose.'

A child carrier - also known as a papoose - allows parents to walk with their children strapped to their bodies.

Morgan's comments sparked a debate on Twitter, with the TV presenter asking US president Donald Trump - who follows him on the social media platform - to wade in with his thoughts.

He later tweeted suggesting that he should be the next James Bond, saying: '˜One thing's clear after tonight's ferocious Papoose-gate debate: we need a new James Bond. A 007 who looks sharp in a tux & wouldn't be seen dead in a papoose....' 

Craig's wife, the actress Rachel Weisz, reportedly gave birth to a daughter in August. The couple married in 2011.
