It’s safe to say that Sam Faiers’ boyfriend received quite bit of criticism after her reality show Sam Faiers: The Baby Diaries aired on Sunday night.
The ex-TOWIE lady, 25, and her partner Paul Knightley had invited cameras into their lives to document Sam’s pregnancy, birth and her first few days of motherhood.
We also got an insight into their relationship and families.
But unfortunately for the couple, Paul Sr – who their son Paul Tony is named after – received a barrage of insults on Twitter and Instagram when he was seen taking a nap while Sam was in labour and refusing to cook for himself.
Now Sam has hit back on Instagram, captioning a photo of the two men in her life: ‘wow Paul really is getting some stick. I wish people wouldn’t look into it so much. It’s just a tv show edited & made for good viewing.
‘Yes he fell asleep reading baby books, didn’t attend yoga & no he doesn’t cook but he is the most caring loving man I know. & the best daddy to baby Paul.
‘Also I’d like to add… This is then man who got me better from Crohn’s disease. Months of studying and researching to find me alternative natural medication. He’s my hero . xxx.’
Another part of the documentary that attracted some attention showed Paul, er, kissing his mum on the lips after having an emotional chat with her about parenthood.
