Laura Whitmore Shares Frustration At People’s Comments Since She Gave Birth

"I actually feel the best I’ve felt ever and the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life."

Laura Whitmore has spoken out against people commenting on her lifestyle, post-birth. The 35-year-old welcomed her gorgeous little girl into the world at the start of the month and appeared on Celebrity Juice, the show she presents at the weekend.

This led to a number of articles and comments about her ‘returning to work so soon’ which she has addressed in a new post on social media. Sharing a gorgeous snap of her out for ice cream with her little one she said; “Little tip for speaking to new mums… everyone has a different experience so please don’t put your opinion or expectation on them.”

“I’ve been told I won’t be able to leave the house and should feel sh*t. But I actually feel the best I’ve felt ever and the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life.”

Continuing the Bray native said; “And maybe feel a bit guilty for feeling good as I’ve been told I shouldn’t. But I’ve created something incredible. I had a positive natural birth with thankfully no complications and a baby that LOVES the boob (and jaysus those boobs are looking good!) also a supportive partner who loves changing dirty nappies (well at least he does them anyway!)”

“I am lucky that’s my truth at the moment- I’m sure there will be tougher days. But you should never compare yourself to anyone else as your journey is specific to you.”

The TV presenter finished with a powerful statement; “Stop comparing bodies and situations. My body is not here for your comparison so please don’t judge it.”

“Support other women, it doesn’t knock you – in fact it empowers you. Just a thought x”

Before the birth of her first child, Laura made it very clear she had no intention of giving up the career she worked so hard to build.

Speaking to The Telegraph she said; “When people ask if I’m going to give up work this year because of the baby, I’m like, ‘Why? Mum did it in ’80s Ireland!’

“My mum grew up the youngest of 13 children in Catholic Ireland. She had a child out of wedlock and worked full-time, which taught me that there’s nothing you can’t do.

“All my friends from school are doctors or teachers. The fact that I even thought it was possible to go off and work at MTV came from my mum because her attitude was: ‘If you want to, then why not?’”
