Jools Oliver just welcomed her fifth baby and now faces ridicule from the trolls attacking her ‘post-baby body’.
Jools Oliver, wife of TV Chef Jamie Oliver, was mum shamed online after an Instagram post she shared about a new pair of pants.
“Finally ‘almost’ fitting into these gorgeous trousers so comfy post little baby and beyond, think we have finally found our perfect trousers,” the new mum shared in her Instagram post.
One follower snapped, “I am currently pregnant with my 2nd baby. And every minute of every day I’m scrutinising my weight. Pictures like this DO NOT HELP!”
The user added: “Shouldn’t you be more concerned with bonding with your child rather than how quickly you fit back into your jeans?”
But Jools saw the comment and hit back, “Honestly it’s about the trousers!!! I didn’t even think about the weight!!! For god sake I still have heaps to lose as I said earlier my tshirt hides a lot!! It was merely a shout out to the lovely girls who sent me the trousers nothing more I hardly EVER put pictures up of myself and certainly not a ‘selfie’ I am confident with my body before during and after pregnancy and totally get that things don’t go back to normal for at least 6 months to a year! If at all and after 5 babies I should know. The waist of the trousers is elasticated!!!!! So prob would have fitted when I was 9 months pregs!
As for bonding with my baby… I feel no need to address this it’s ridiculous. So please next time if I irritate you just unfollow me it was just meant to be a nice pic of a pair of good trews but has to turn in to a weight issue seems a bit weird to me and a totally shame !”
And Jools was also backed up by her mother in-law Sally Oliver who left a comment of support to the new mum.
“Jools – there are always chippy nutters on social media, so don’t forget, a quick ‘delete’ and ‘block’ is quicker than having to defend yourself (albeit very sweetly) against some troll looking for someone to blame for their own unsatisfactory existence.”
When one commenter praised Jamie’s mum for sticking up for her kin she said she felt “incensed” when she read some of the criticisms about her “lovely daughter-in-law”.
Sally added: “To infer that she is not bonding with her new baby is beyond arrogant. She is the most wonderful mother.”
