Holly Willoughby under fire for holding new born BEFORE mum


Holly Willoughby was in her element on This Morning as she spent time with newborn babies and their mothers during a special episode.

The host even joked that she may never return to her day job and pursue a midwifery position instead.

However the mum-of-three came under fire as she was shown holding newborn baby Mei before Mei's own mum had a chance to hold her.

Holly gave the baby a cuddle as mum recovered from an emergency c-section. 

"She's just so special, so magical," she said as she cradled the newborn.

However, This Morning viewers weren't happy with the show, and said that Holly should have waited to hold baby Mei until after her mum had.

Holly fans were quick to point out that This Morning had probably gotten permission from the recovering mum before the interview.

During the show, Holly also caught up with midwife of 16 years, Sylvie Wachtendorff who helped her learn to breastfeed her own son Harry.

"Sylvie spent a good 20 minutes with me, helping me to feed him. And he was my best feeder," she said.
