The two called it quits earlier this year.

Former Love Island star Laura Anderson has been mum-shamed during her pregnancy following her split from Gary Lucy.

The 34 year old is currently expecting her first child with the actor but split shortly after she discovered she was pregnant.

Over the weekend, Laura took to Instagram to share her birthday celebrations, but was welcomed instead to unsolicited relationship advice.

One person wrote: “It’s so hard raising a child on your own and Gary seemed to adore you and children.

“Maybe you could try to get over what he did and give it another try?”

Laura was quickly defended by fans as one person said: “Don’t really think that’s your decision to make.

“Raising a baby is hard on your own or with a partner but I’m sure she has thought about everything and what’s best in her situation.”

Laura and Gary split earlier this year and speaking to The Sun, he revealed the reason for the split was down to distance.

He said: “Laura did want me to move [to Scotland] but I have my responsibilities here.

“I have four kids and all the things that go along with that so it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to uproot at this time.

“Having gone through a divorce, my children need me and living such a long way from them just would not be possible.”

Gary shares India, Elvis, Sadie and Theodore with ex-wife Natasha Gray.
