Emma McVey has been criticised following their baby announcement. And she's just set the record straight...
Emma McVey, who has just announced that she’s expecting her first child with boyfriend Gary Beadle, has been receiving some cruel comments on Instagram.
The 24-year-old shared the happy news simultaneously with her Geordie Shore beau on Instagram on Tuesday night, with each of them explaining how ‘excited’ they are.
It’s no secret that a number of fans were shocked by the news, but many rushed to offer their congratulations.
Sadly, a number of others took the opportunity to criticise. Sigh.
Trawling back to some of Emma’s earlier posts, a few eagle-eyed followers spotted a photograph of the loved-up pair together, with what appeared to be a pint of beer and a cocktail.
The picture was uploaded on July 30th, almost a month before the happy news was announced, and yet a number of Emma’s followers took to the comment box to question whether she had been drinking whilst pregnant.
One wrote: ‘She’s pregnant, yet she’s here in this picture drinking alcohol?’
Another speculated: ‘Drinking whilst pregnant…’
Others, however, jumped to her defence. Reactions included: ‘OMG ITS PROBABLY ALCOHOL FREE!!!!!’ and ‘relax you can get cocktails with no alcohol congrats to you both xx’ [sic].

In fact, boyfriend Gary waded in to set the record straight. He wrote: ‘Ever heard of a mocktail jesus some people are so thick 🙈’ [sic].
Emma herself has also hit back at the claims, confirming to the Mirror: ‘All bars sell non-alcoholic cocktails so of course it’s not alcoholic!’
The model also took to Twitter to silence the ‘trolls’, telling her followers: ‘Do people not realise you can have none alcoholic cocktails?
‘You know…mocktails find something else to try troll about’ [sic].
So, there you have it.
