Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips hits out at ‘mum police’ as she shares baby Lucia pic

Love Island 's Shaughna Phillips hit back at “mum police” after she took her newborn daughter Lucia out in the car for the first time.

Shaughna, 28, marked the milestone on Instagram and told her followers: “First drive on my own? Completed it m8” before she preempted any concerned questions she thought she might be asked.

Shaughna assured her followers that she had done “everything right” when putting her baby girl in the car for the first time.

While keeping her sense of humour, she wrote: “Before the mum police come for me, just want to assure you that passenger airbags were turned off, seatbelt was used correctly, it’s legal for her to be in the front with me, she was strapped in securely, picture was taken when I was parked, and if there’s anything else I’ve forgotten, I done that right as well lol”.

In the same Insta post, Shaughna also said it was a “H U G E” deal for her to have driven in her car for the first time with Lucia, and that she has had “crippling anxiety” since she gave birth.

The former islander openly wrote: “Now I know this might not be a big deal to most people, but to me this was H U G E.

“I can’t explain how crippling my anxiety has been since Lucia arrived, I had anxiety through my pregnancy and I really thought it would ease up once she was here but my god I was wrong.”

She continued: “I’ve spoken briefly with my midwife about it, and I think it’s going to be something I may need to speak to my doctor about for some help with, but I’m trying. I know the more I let my anxiety stop me from doing things, the more Lucia will miss out on, and I’m determined to not let it get the better of me! Small steps.”

Shaughna’s honest and open message was met with supportive and reassuring comments from her fans and friends.

Influencer and new first time mum, Em Clarkson wrote: “you're doing great babe and have solidified my suspicions that I need the Doona for travelling cos look at that.”

A supportive fan wrote: “Thank you for using your platform to talk openly about your pregnancy and post partum anxiety”, while another said: “Well done! I get you on the anxiety! That first drive is terrifying”.

A third said: “Urgh the mum police can do one! You’re smashing it x”.
