Sam Faiers Hits Back At Criticism Of Her Baby Boy’s Name

We think it’s safe to say that Sam Faiers‘ son is one of the cutest babies we’ve EVER seen.

The ex-TOWIE lady gave birth to her little boy on 29 December, and shared an adorable throwback snap of her partner Paul Knightley giving him a loving kiss last night.

She captioned the image: ‘Just a few hours old. our beautiful baby … Look at those lips. we can’t help but just kiss him all the time.’ Aw. How adorable?!

And it’s… *drum roll* Paul Tony.

Paul is (obviously) in honour of his dad, while Tony is the name of his uncle. Which is a pretty lovely sentiment, right?

But unfortunately for Sam, she ended up receiving some cruel Instagram comments from followers who weren’t so keen on the moniker. Harsh.

One wrote: ‘paul? Really?’ while another swiped: ‘Sounds like a Basildon nightclub doorman! Lol.paul?’

Understandably, this must’ve been somewhat hurtful for Sam. However, the 25-year-old hit back in the classiest way.

She screengrabbed a kind message she’d received from a fan and re-posted it to her page, saying: ‘Couldn’t have put this in better words myself. Thank you x.’

The note read: ‘I actually cannot believe the comments on here i wonder if any of them have children of their own? [sic].
