A reality TV star chose to breastfeed her son live on This Morning and viewers praised her for the move.Former TOWIE star Sam Faiers, who was on the programme to talk about her new reality show The Mummy Diaries, had been stuck in traffic on the way to the studios. She appeared with baby Paul under a blanket as he fed him while talking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
The presenter made sure to confirm to viewers that it was the reality star’s decision to keep him covered as she was still feeding him when they went live. She’d already missed her earlier slot and was switched with Hollyoaks star Davinia Taylor, she fed the 10-month-old tot for a few minutes before she handed him over to Holly and buttoned up her shirt.
Viewers were quick to praise the new mum, taking to Twitter: “@SamanthaFaiers so much respect for Sam feeding live on #thismorning #breastisbest” “Fair play @SamanthaFaiers – I seriously hope no trolls come out and berate her for feeding her baby live on TV #thismorning” “Good for you @thismorning showing Breastfeeding on the television and good for Sam Faires! What a beautiful little boy! #ThisMorning”
Sam shared her plans for her future with boyfriend Paul, she wanted to get married and wanted to have four more children. Holly was shocked as she asked, “Have you settled on a number?” and Sam said: “Five. Yes we want a big family.” She also revealed they were planning on leaving Essex and heading towards Surrey, which Phil joked: “That just doesn’t seem right in my head!”
