Love Island’s Camilla Thurlow admits judgemental trolls make parenting ‘overwhelming’ | #parenting | #parenting | #parenting | #kids

Love Island star Camilla Thurlow is proud mother to baby girl Nell alongside co-star Jamie Jewitt.

The couple fell in love on the reality TV series in 2017 and continued their romance off-screen and now are planning to tie the knot after Jamie, 30, bent the knee in February.

And since the duo became parents they have been sharing life with their new tot online – including all the ups and downs that come with juggling life with a new addition.

However, Camilla, 31, has admitted that it can be tough being a mum, especially when coming under scrutiny from trolls on social media.

During a chat with Tyla, the explosive ordnance disposal specialist shared that it can be “overwhelming” being a parent especially when others pass judgement.

“Becoming a mother is so overwhelming,” Camilla told.

“We’re all trying to be the best we can be for our babies. What works for one family might not work for someone else.

“It’s so important that we’re able to speak to other parents without casting judgement, because these judgements can have a real effect. We want people to have a place where they can definitely share their experiences, but they can get advice that can help and empower parents.”

Earlier this year, Camilla proved that she does not mind berating trolls after one commented on one of her pictures to say she looked like she was expecting another child.

Camilla spoke of her pride in the changes her body had gone through so that she could carry, deliver and care for her baby girl.

Sharing a beautiful selfie, she wrote: “I’ve been in two minds whether to mention this but I did notice some comments on a recent picture I posted of me and Nell suggesting I’m pregnant or pointing out they could see a bump.

Camilla has opened up on how mothers need to stop being judgemental to one another

“This is just a friendly reminder that if a woman wants you to know she is pregnant, she will tell you. And wouldn’t that lovely, joyous news be so much better coming from her than you inadvertently causing embarrassment or offence, or worse, pain and sadness?

“FYI I’m not offended, I’m 3.5 months postpartum. My body spent 9 months adapting not just to carrying and birthing a baby, but to becoming a mother. My shoulders are broader now and thank goodness they are as I’m carrying a baby around most of the time.

“They have allowed me to rock my little girl to sleep even when my arms were aching, to let her feel warm and safe in my arms. My hips are wider and I’m so glad they are as they give me the support I need to scoop her up and chatter into her perfect little face.”

She went on: “I know I have days ahead when I’ll need to perch her on that hip, while I multi-task with her by my side. And yes, I have more energy stores! I’ve never needed them so much in my life, and I’ve never been more grateful to my body for finding a way to constantly keep going.

“(My feet are also a size bigger but I haven’t quite worked out why that is yet!). So here is a picture, not of my body, but of my happy face, of the most contented I have ever been and of the strongest I have ever felt.

“I’m the luckiest woman in the world and those comments did not bother me, but just a gentle reminder that they could be hurtful to someone, however well-meaning they might be.”

Camilla was praised for her message, as people thanked her for putting it out there.
