Amy Childs has defended Molly-Mae Hague for being ‘mum-shamed’ for going to the gym weeks after giving birth to daughter Bambi.
Just three weeks after Molly and partner Tommy Fury welcomed their daughter to the world on 23 January, the Love Island star was back in the gym and was bizarrely slammed for doing so.
The 23-year-old is known for her love of fitness and staying in good shape, but has been criticised for making other mums 'feel inadequate'.
The haters believe that she should be 'celebrating' her post-birth body rather than wasting no time to change it.
"A shame to see #MollyMae sharing videos of herself in the gym 3.5 weeks after Bambi was born," one person tweeted.
"Luckily for her she has a home gym but the new mums following her on insta won't have and her post is likely to make them feel inadequate.
"A newborn and jeans are rarely compatible IRL."
Another added: "Literally they decided to induce her labour so he would be around because he has a big fight.
"He is not there a decent amount of time for said fight but sure Molly Mae is a bad mother for going to the gym."
However, Childs, who is expecting twins with her partner Billy Delbosq, says that people 'need to back off' and let her be.
"Trolls giving Molly-Mae Hague grief about getting back into the gym after having Bambi need to back off - it's her body," she said.
"It's entirely up to Molly what she wants to do - whatever makes her happy."
Fans have also been sticking up for the famous mum, with one person commenting: "It's actually so sad...and people are berating molly for going to the gym one time when he hasn't been there for the entire pregnancy or now the baby is born.
"He's turning me into a Molly-Mae sympathiser! you know it's bad."
A second person also shared their thoughts: "Molly Mae has always loved exercise - she used to work in a gym! Why would she give up a healthy thing she loves because she has become a mum?"
While another user added: "Women get shamed if they don’t lose the baby weight straight away and now Molly-Mae is being shamed for what exactly?
"Leaving the house and not having a baby attached to her tit 24/7.
"Poor Tommy probably at home babysitting whilst she’s having a belter doon the gym how dare she."
Tyla has contacted Molly-Mae's representatives for comment.
