Who'd be a celeb mum in this day and age, eh?


Here at MFM HQ we give a definite "NOT US!" to this one - mainly because of the amount of stories we report on just like this.

The Hills and Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari, 29, found herself at the mercy of a bunch of haters when she posted a cute and totally innocent family snap on Instagram, showing hubby Jay Cutler and her sons Jax and Camden (she also has a little girl, Saylor, not pictured).


The criticism? That her little boys are too thin - because of the fact you can see their spines.

“I understand you live a very strict dietary lifestyle but these children are very obviously nutritionally deficient,” one Instagram user wrote.

Another said: “Seeing pictures of your boys and how they look is a bit shocking to see! I know you cook healthy but to see the bones just doesn’t seem normal, sorry!"

But Kristin - who has made no secret of the super-healthy diet she maintains for her and her family - took the comments square on the chin and retaliated against her critics, responding sarcastically:

“Yep, I starve my children. Just blocked the most people I’ve ever blocked in my entire life."

And as much as people had a go, there were PLENTY who supported the star, too.

"For the love of God - my son was a bean pole most of his childhood and adolescence...people need to mind their own business and take care of their own.

"Your kids are adorable and there is nothing wrong with the way they look!! People seriously need to learn to butt out of other people's business!! have a great summer!"

And another said:

"Your boys look adorable!! They seem to be happy and healthy. You can see my oldest ribs, not because I don't feed him, but because he has a ridiculous metabolism.

"I know so many people have shared similar stories, but since so many people felt the need to be hateful, I feel the need to be supportive. Keep being an amazing mom and loving those boys like crazy."

Here here, we say: who's to judge parenting based on one pic? And we agree, Kristin - that your little boys look just gorgeous ?
