Emma McVey has been criticised following their baby announcement. And she's just set the record straight...
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.
No dramz to see here.
