Rochelle Humes, who welcomed her second child last week, has shocked fans with a picture of her daughter’s framed umbilical cord.
Th singer posted a snap of the controversial birth souvenir on Instagram, after giving birth to her baby girl Valentine, which consists of the dried umbilical cord in a pink frame spelling ‘Love’, and placenta pills.
Captioning the photo, the mum-of-two wrote: ‘After being very curious I took the plunge, so excited to feel the benefits..Thanks so much Danielle @placentaplus’.
The picture split opinions amongst fans, with many branding it ‘absolutely disgusting’ and ‘ridiculous’.
One commented on the picture: ‘I feel sick’, while others wrote ‘Ridiculous on another level!’ and ‘that is absolutely disgusting’.
Another fan said: ‘Missed an opportunity here! Who wouldn’t want their umbilical cord hanging on the wall?!’, with another ironically commented ‘feeling inspired to make a picture out of my kids toenails’.
But while many fans were shocked by Rochelle’s picture, some agreed with the singer’s decision to keep her daughter’s dehydrated umbilical cord, and to take placenta pills.
‘This is gorgeous’, one fan commented, while another wrote ‘So beautiful, love this’.
Rochelle, who’s already a mum to three-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai, is the latest celebrity mum to join the trend of taking placenta pills, following the likes of Natasha Hamilton and Rebekah Vardy.
Coleen Rooney also revealed last year that she was taking placenta pills after she welcomed her third son Kit, and Amy Childs, who’s currently pregnant with her first child, has said she’s considering doing the same after she gives birth.
But while Rochelle’s post-birth updates have split opinion amongst fans, her husband Marvin’s updates on his second daughter are far less controversial.

The proud dad shared a glimpse of the two just before he changed her nappy to a Chelsea FC one, leaving no doubts in which football team she will support when she’s older.
‘Just about to change Valentina’s nappy..starting her off the right way!!!’, he captioned the cute photo.
