Tom Fletcher's wife hits back at body-shamer

Tom Fletcher's wife Giovanna has hit back at a woman who criticised her post-baby figure.

The writer gave birth to her second son, Buddy, in February, but she was subsequently ridiculed by an unnamed female in the street, who cruelly joked: "Mummy's still got her tummy".

But the proud mother has hit back on Facebook, posting a picture of herself and writing: "This was eleven days after giving birth. I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me. Obviously. It wasn't left there either as there was another comment about my face 'slimming down'. More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger's need to share her thoughts...

"Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker...

"My bump will slowly go over time, but I'll never stop being thankful to it and my body for everything it's given me. #spreadlove (sic)"

Meanwhile, Tom - who also has a 23-month-old son called Buzz with his wife - recently announced he is releasing a children's book called 'A Christmasaurus'.

Tom explained: "The Christmasauras' is a story about a boy called William Trundell and a dinosaur, the Christmasauras, and how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure.

"It's about families and friendships, Santa and sleigh bells, singing elves and flying reindeer, music and magic, and it's about finding your heart's true desire.

"One of the things I'm most excited about is that I've been writing music to help bring the story to life."
