Lucy Mecklenburgh Gets Angry at ‘Vile’ People Criticizing Breastfeeding in Public

Lucy Mecklenburgh has hit out at people who were criticizing women for breastfeeding in public.

The former TOWIE star and her fiancé Ryan Thomas welcomed their son Roman Ravello last month.

The new mum shared photos of this exciting time and is getting used to having a newborn to care for.

Her followers had thanked her for being so open about breastfeeding, and they also shared experiences of abuse they received while feeding their kids in public.


Lucy had shared the picture while celebrating her little boy’s one-month birthday, with the caption: “Birthday breakfast. I can’t believe my little man is 1 month old!!!!”

Then she wrote a post about the shocking abuse her followers had received, saying: “So many messages thanking me for being so open about breastfeeding. In shock how many of u got abuse for breastfeeding 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 u rather a hungry screaming baby!?”

Ryan recently shared that he feels full of fear and loneliness since he and Lucy are raising their newborn son in lockdown.


Despite the joys of welcoming a new child, Ryan feels worried about the current situation amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The actor is also a father to 11-year-old Scarlett with his ex Tina O’Brien.

He shared a candid picture with his 1 million Instagram fans in which he vowed to help new parents with baby supplies during this crisis.
