Ferne McCann opens up on 'mum police' who shame and harass – especially over her baby’s name | The Sun
MUM-OF-TWO Ferne McCann has opened up about the mum-shaming she experiences, especially when it comes to one of her daughter’s names.
Ferne, 33, welcomed baby Finty in July – a little sister for her five-year-old sister, Sunday.
But the former The Only Way Is Essex star admitted that whenever she shares anything about her kids on her social media accounts, other parents shame and harass her.
She explained: “I get trolled for whatever – especially when it comes to the children.”
Speaking on podcast Saving Grace, Ferne continued to dub her critics “the mum police.”
Ferne continued: “I don’t know if it’s mums and dads, but on my socials, it’s normally mums, and they come out in force.”

Detailing the things she’s received negative comments about, Ferne listed everything from feeding techniques to how you dress your kids.
She revealed: “No matter what – whether you breastfeed, dummies, muslin, the way you support their head – how people can see that in a picture, I don’t know – to what you dress them in and call them, everyone has an opinion.”
And Ferne, who has her own ITV series called Ferne McCann: My Family & Me, said that has definitely been her experience.
When Ferne announced that she’d called her eldest daughter Sunday, people questioned her choices and slammed the moniker.

And when the podcast host grilled her on “the hate”, Ferne said it even continued into her second pregnancy.
Ferne recalled: “When I was pregnant with Finty, everyone was like, ‘it’s going to be Monday or Tuesday – just have seven kids!”
But when she eventually unveiled her unusual moniker to the world, some people made it known they were not a fan – so much so that Ferne hit back.
After spotting comments, such as “that name ain’t cute” and “she cannot be serious with that name”, Ferne decided enough was enough.

And when one of her loyal fans leapt to her defence, she directly responded to them.
Ferne’s Instagram follower wrote: “The name means Pure cannot believe in 2023 people still think it's acceptable to leave such nasty comments.
“A lovely name and a beautiful new addition to a family. Congratulations guys.”
To which Ferne replied: “Thank you babe, not everyone will like it but we do and that is all that matters. Xx.”
