Amy Childs Responds To Controversy Over Diet Shake Post

The new mum came under fire for a recent Instagram upload...

Amy Childs gave birth to her first child last month, and we’re absolutely over the moon for the ex-TOWIE star.

Since welcoming baby Polly into the world, the 26-year-old has been lighting up our Instagram feeds with updates.

She first announced the news with a snap of her daughter’s teeny-tiny hand, writing the caption: ‘Welcome to the world my beautiful daughter.’

Welcome to the world my beautiful daughter 💞

We’ve also seen pictures of cute clothes, a teddy and a changing table. Aw.

However, a recent post from Amy sparked quite a bit of controversy among fans, with some accusing the Essex lady of irresponsibly promoting post-partum weight loss.

In a post – which has since been deleted – the new mum referenced a diet shake. However, she’s now spoken out about the controversial post, defending herself against the allegations.

Amy tells new!: ‘Everyone was going mad at me [about the post], saying I was risking my daughter’s health, that I shouldn’t be drinking them while breastfeeding and how I’m selfish for wanting to lose weight so soon after the birth.’

After admitting that the furore had ‘really upset her’, the new mum continued: ‘The truth is, it was a mistake and it shouldn’t have been posted on this date.’

Bath time for me and my princess💞

While it’s great to see people discussing important topics such as the health of new mothers, it looks like Amy simply made a social media blunder.

Sending our very best to Amy, partner Bradley Wright and baby Polly.
