Danielle Armstrong defended after being mum-shamed by troll over parenting choices

Danielle Armstrong has faced unkind criticism after sharing an update about her daughter going to pre-school.

The former TOWIE star, who was a cast member on the ITV show from 2013 until 2020, regularly shares update about her family life to her 1,300,000 followers on Instagram.

This week, the 35-year-old revealed that her first born, three-year-old daughter Orla, started pre-school.

Danielle, who shares both her children with husband Tommy Edney, captioned the post: "And just like that our little girl is at pre school.

"I’m not sure if it’s the uniform but all of a sudden our little Orla just looks so grown up. Excited for you to make new friends , explore, and make childhood memories my little darling."

The post included a picture of Orla in her school uniform and a video of the family getting ready to leave, as Tommy cheers "Oi oi" in the background.

The post attracted plenty of positive interactions, including from close friend and former co-star Ferne McCann, who commented: "Oh my goodness she looks so cute."

However, some trolls took aim at Danielle and Tommy for sending their daughter off to school at an early age.

One hit out and commented: “She's two should still be in nursery, too young for pre school, in my opinion… keep her in nursery till four. Don't make them grow up to soon. This is my opinion and I am old school."

However, fans chimed in to respond and pointed out that Orla is in fact over three years old. One said: "Always a negative nelly on here I'm sure they know what's best for there child."

Another added: "Why don’t you mind your own business, people have to much of it".

A third said: "I can understand what your saying, we all want them to stay little but yes she is three, so preschool age, still very much like nursery, just allows them to transition into big school. Then it’ll be reception when she’s four. It’s all very good and careful thought out."

Danielle gave birth to her second daughter Una Rae in July this year via C-section.

She has been praised in recent months for showing off her post-baby body after sharing a snap of herself in a black bra and pants while in the dressing room of her Essex home.

Danielle said: "So here I am today 10 days postpartum. I’ve been recovering after having a C – Section and wow I didn’t realise the simple things that I took for granted like getting out of bed, picking up Orla to cuddle her, bending down to pick things up and even putting on my underwear.

"I look at my body today and I’m celebrating what an amazing job it’s done, growing a tiny human being and going through a big operation to bring life into this world."
