After someone responded to the viewer's tweet to say she was pregnant at the time, he replied: 'Mmm, obviously used it as an excuse to gain all them chins. #callthemidwife'.

Sorry if my chins offended you, I chose to feed my baby healthily and not starve myself in a selfish act to look good on tv. Would you say this to a pregnant ladyâs face? You should look on pregnant ladies multiple chins with love, they are busy making the future x https://t.co/pWe6T0i6mf

Despite the negative comment, one fan tweeted the new mum to say: 'Nicely put, although he doesn't deserve your time beautiful lady xx'.

Responding to the fan's tweet, Helen confessed that she's been getting many similar comments, and said she felt like fat-shaming is a general feeling towards pregnant women.

When your baby turns up early for her own baby shower, welcome to the world little one. What an amazing day, we have the best friends ð’•ð’•ð’•
