It’s been less than a month since Rebekah Vardy and her footballer husband Jamie welcomed their son Finley on 8th January.
But the new mum has already been forced to hit back at cruel online trolls, who’ve targeted her with ‘sick and twisted’ comments since her baby was born.
Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine, the 34 year old shocked fans by revealing that one person even wished her new son was dead.
‘A troll tweeted me saying they wished my newborn son was stillborn – and I’m still disgusted,’ Rebekah said.
‘So many people go through that and it’s such a topical subject at the moment with it being a Coronation Street storyline. You’ve got to be some sick and twisted individual to post that, but they’re just sad idiots looking for attention and wanting to upset others.’
The new mum refused to let the social media user get away with their comments, and took steps to ensure their account was deactivated.
‘I blocked the person and reported to Twitter, who have frozen their account,’ she said. ‘Fortunately I’m a strong person.’
Revealing why she felt it was so important to take action, the mum of four explained: ‘Those tweets need to be highlighted because it’s the society we live in and it highlights what we have to tolerate.’
The couple welcomed their second child together earlier this month, and since the birth the new mum hasn’t been far from the headlines.
