Scarlett Moffatt has slammed mum-shamers for bombarding her with negative comments.

Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt hit back at online trolls after they criticised the appearance of her baby son.

The TV personality welcomed her first child with partner Scott Dobinson earlier this year. Moffatt confirmed the news with an Instagram post in June.

In a recent update to fans, Moffatt shared photos from the 32-year-old’s nan’s birthday in which she was holding her son as they enjoyed their party with their relatives.

She captioned the post: “How do I have a 2-month-old baby already!? Spending the whole weekend with my family for my Nanny’s 70th.

“We played bingo, did quizzes, and ate burnt sausages from the BBQ it was perfectly imperfect. We’ve all laughed from start to finish & Jude even went in a pool for the first time.”

Despite the wholesome photos, some trolls left comments in reference to Moffatt’s son’s footwear.

One user said: “At that age, they should only be wearing socks or babygro,” to which the 32-year-old shut down those criticizing her, replying: “They are soft shoes! They’re Nike crib shoes! I’m not gonna put trainers on my baby.”

The new mum said she has been hit with waves of negative messages since welcoming her son.

She said, “Jude’s only 8 weeks old, and the amount of unsolicited parenting advice I’ve had.”

“We were taking him out for a walk and I took a pic before we went and I was bombarded with you shouldn’t let your baby wear hats indoor comments and messages. It’s ridiculous xx.”
