LUCY Mecklenburgh has hit out at trolls after sharing a breastfeeding photo online.
The 28-year-old posted a snap of baby Roman during feeding time as she posed on the bed.
After sharing the intimate moment, Lucy revealed she had been inundated with messages from fans revealing they’ve been attacked for openly breast feeding in public.
Lucy said: “So many messages thanking me for being so open about breastfeeding.
“In shock how many of you are saying you got abuse for breast feeding in public.
“With the current situation I haven’t been able to even do that, but can’t imagine why anyone would have anything negative to say to a woman simply trying to feed her baby.
“Who are these vile people!?!
“Would you rather a hungry screaming baby!?”
Shortly after giving birth to her first child, the UK was put on lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
It means she’s now isolating with baby Roman and her partner Ryan Thomas.
He spoke candidly about being a new parent in lockdown – admitting he is “full of fear and loneliness.”
The 35-year-old said: “I’ve been thinking a lot about parents who are soon to bring a baby or just had a baby like ourselves into this crazy world we live in right now, something none of us imagined.

“What is suppose to be one of the most special times in your life is full fear and loneliness.
“Everyday is a new challenge with a new born, luckily me & lucy have each other & work hard as a team to look after our baby in our little bubble.”
He continued: “It is unsettling not having support and reassurance from loved ones and the knowledge of normal medical care available if needed and it makes you feel very vulnerable.
“To all parents out there you need to know you are doing such an amazing job.”
