Sam Faiers shares baby photo - and slams trolls who criticised her choice of name

TOWIE star Sam Faiers gave birth to her first baby on December 29th, and has just shared a gorgeous photo on Instagram after announcing his name - Paul Tony Knightley. 

The little one was named after his dad, Paul Knightley, and his uncle. 

But as well as the hundreds of messages of congratulations and good will, Sam also faced criticism from trolls attacking her choice of baby name. 

Sam fought back by Instagramming one of her follower’s supportive messages, which read: “I actually cannot believe the comments on here i wonder if any of them have children of their own?....i wonder if they know what it feels like to carry a child for 9months go through labor be bloessed with a healthy child and have the honor of callin him after his father...and all they can think of is oh no paul?!! I think its beautiful and is a real display of love on ur behalf for ur partner.”

Sam replied with: “Couldn't have put this in better words myself. Thank you x”
