Lottie Ryan has admitted that mum-shaming comments “really upset” her after she returned to RTÉ 2fm this week.

The 36-year-old went back to work and joined Jennifer Zamparelli on the airwaves just five months after giving birth to her son Wolf.

Lottie welcomed her first child with her husband Fabio Aprile back in June seven weeks before her due date.

She announced her pregnancy back in February and was not due to give birth until August.

On Monday, the presenter opened up about being nervous to return to work while she left Wolf in a crèche for the first time.

However, Lottie received a lot of backlash for her decision online from other mothers, who said that she should be “ashamed” of herself.

Speaking about the hurtful comments, she said: “I didn’t sleep last night. It’s such a strange, strange feeling because I’m so excited to be back, and I’m so nervous for Wolf starting crèche.

“I was shook by some of the messages that other mothers sent me. You know it was a difficult week for me, it is not easy putting your kid into crèche. It is very emotional and he is very young.

“I was getting messages from some mothers saying, ‘Oh my God Lottie, how could you put a beautiful young baby into crèche at this age, it’s an absolute disgrace, you should be ashamed of yourself.’”

Lottie admitted that she was taken aback by the harsh words.
