The former TOWIE star opened her life to the cameras for the ITVBe show, allowing viewers access to their final weeks of Sam's pregnancy and the birth of their son Paul Tony Knightley.
While the point of the show was the little bundle, several outlets picked up on criticism levelled at Paul, who was making his TV debut.
One particular criticism was about Paul kissing his mother on the lips during a scene where he spoke with mum Gaynor about the impending arrival of her first grandchild.
Sam, however, has not hit back at that posting a photo to Instagram showing her planting a kiss on her baby son Paul's mouth, saying: "I will kiss my baby boy on the lips forever. Thank you for everyone's support and kind comments on our show. Media & people will always try find negative.I'm happy & so totally in love with my family #myworld #positive x."

@SamanthaFaiers i think your missing the point, the bad press is about how you had no support at all..being present doesn't count, want more— Nathan (@nathansmith1994) February 8, 2016
@SamanthaFaiers the kiss wasn't disturbing it was paul's general attitude and control towards you. He needs to man up— Amy Alderson (@amyalderson2000) February 8, 2016
