Mum Who Mooned Crowd Says She's Had Over 500 Messages From Men

A mum who accidentally mooned the crowd on her child’s sports day says she’s had over 500 messages from men.

The 36-year-old mum’s awkward moment went viral after it was shared across social media and showed her running in a parents’ race at the school when she accidentally tripped and flashed her underwear.

The hilarious moment was captured on camera, with Katie Hannaford saying she has since been 'loving every minute' of being in the spotlight. Check out the video here:

Katie has said that she’s been recognised in her local Tesco, as well as receiving a slew of messages from followers as far away as Australia.

Up to 500 of the messages she’s received have come from men dubbing her a 'MILF', while other followers have questioned how she is single, she claims.

She said: "I've had thousands of messages - at least 500 of them have been from men from Greece to Puerto Rico to Germany and even Australia, saying 'how are you single?' and calling me a 'MILF'.”

Katie, who is the business owner of the interior decor business Home of Hearts, said: "It’s gone crazy, I didn’t expect this in the slightest.

“I can’t put into words how I feel but I’ve been loving every minute - I’ve not stopped laughing since.

At one point, she even forgot the whole ordeal when people noticed her whilst food shopping.

She admitted: "I thought something was on my face the way people stared at me when I was in Tesco yesterday - I had to give myself a reality check and remember why!"

Katie also explained that the reactions have mainly been positive, with people calling her an 'amazing mum' for the way she handled the incident.

She said: "The best comment I have seen is one that said: 'Don't be a Karen, be a Katie'. I can't take credit, but it's my favourite!”

"My eldest daughter even had a message from someone on Vinted when they recognised her profile after seeing a pair of shoes she was selling.

"[And] my youngest went into school the next day and before she even had a chance to explain what happened, everyone was already telling her mum is now famous,” she said.

“I've also had some very moving messages,” she explained. “One came from someone who told me they are in a really dark place, and the video had made them smile for the first time in six months."

Elsewhere, Katie has had to deal with messages from trolls. But the ‘clumsy’ mum said “There's nothing you can say or do that will hurt or upset me.

"I didn't go out of my way to be funny or try to get fame, these things just happen when you don't expect them.”

We think she's handled it like an absolute champ, go Katie!
