Kat Von D Has Divided Fans By Revealing That She Won’t Be Vaccinating Her Child

The beauty boss is currently expecting a son with her husband.

Kat Von D has revealed that she is planning to not vaccinate her child.

The TV star had a marriage celebration with her musician boyfriend Prayers in a lavish, goth-themed ceremony this week after secretly marrying in February.

After a brief honeymoon, the pair announced that they were expecting their first child together. Kat took to Instagram to announce her pregnancy and released a lengthy statement to explain how she plans to raise her child.


In the post, Kat Von D said she plans to “have a natural, drug-free homebirth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations.”

The post has gotten a mixed reaction, with some praising the star for her mothering choices, while others criticised her for deciding not to vaccinate her child.

One comment read:

Imagine having insane influence and then spreading anti-vaccination ignorance this wide and far with DEADLY ramifications. You not only immune your child to diseases you also make sure other low-immunity children do not fall sick when you decide to vaccinate your baby. And you not only decided to put your baby at risk but also all the low immune babies around. And then you used your influence to spread that ignorance. Vaccinations work. Which is why polio is a thing of the past.



Responding to a comment asking her why she doesn’t believe in vaccinations, the tattoo artist said:

After much research, we feel vaccinations are not safe, and seem to be pushed by an industry whose interest is not in the wellbeing of mankind.
