Take that! New mum Giovanna Fletcher has hit back at a stranger's comments about her post birth body and defended her "miracle worker" bump.

Just three weeks after welcoming her precious newborn son Buddy Bob into the world with McBusted husband Tom, Giovanna has revealed she's been targeted by body-shaming comments.

Posting a gorgeous natural snap on Instagram that showed off her healthy figure, the author told fans that she was "baffled" when a stranger felt the need to point at her stomach and laugh about the fact she's "still got her tummy".

Crazy, right?

Focusing on the fact that the whole pregnancy and birth thing is a mind-blowing human miracle, Giovanna shared her own positive outlook on her body that kept her newborn safe and filled her world with love.

She wrote: "A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say 'Oh look, Mummy's still got her tummy'. This was eleven days after giving birth.

"I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me. Obviously. It wasn't left there either as there was another comment about my face 'slimming down'.

"More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger's need to share her thoughts... Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker...

"My bump will slowly go over time, but I'll never stop being thankful to it and my body for everything it's given me. #spreadlove."

Giovanna announced the arrival of Buddy Bob on 16 February by sharing a photo of a sunny blue sky, saying: "What a beautiful day to be born... Welcome to the world Buddy Bob Fletcher. xxx #player2."

Tom and Gi are already parents to son Buzz.

Meanwhile, McFly singer Tom confirmed the arrival by saying: "Player 2 has entered the game," a reference to the internet breaking YouTube video the pair created last year to announce the pregnancy.

He later added: "Completely overwhelmed with love for our second son Buddy, and can't wait for him to meet his big brother. Thanks for the lovely messages."
