AceShowbiz - Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has become the latest victim of mom-shamers when she merely wants to have some quality times with her family at Disneyland. The pregnant reality TV star faced criticism after she recently posted on Instagram pictures from their fun-filled day, and one picture appeared to anger her followers.
The image in question featured the family smiling inside the Orlando, Florida theme park as her six-year-old son Lorenzo Dominic and four-year-old daughter Giovanna Marie sat in strollers. Lorenzo was matching with his parents in black T-shirt, while Giovanna was dressed in an Elsa costume, complete with a tiara. "Have a magical day," the "Jersey Shore" star wrote in the caption, adding the hashtag #disneycrew.
Shortly after the picture was posted, her followers began to criticize her decision to have the children ride around the park in strollers when both of them can walk just fine. "Omg my kids would never be in a stroller that big," one commented as a user said, "It's time to make them kids walk lol."
Referencing to Disneyland's new policy about stroller size which officialy goes into effect next month, one other wrote, "Anddddd a perfect example of why Disney's enforcing stricter guidelines on strollerssssssss #kidssobigtheirfeetdrag." One individual sarcastically said, "Imagine being like 8 years old and having your mom push you in a stroller."
Not letting herself get criticized even more, Snooki defended her decision to use strollers at the theme park in order to avoid pregnancy stress. The MTV star wrote in a since-deleted comment, "They walk! But in large crowds I prefer they sit their a**es down. Saves me the stresses of not losing my offspring."
Snooki, who is expecting a baby boy, is currently in her third semester of pregnancy. Recently, she admitted that this had been the worst pregnancy she ever had. "I'm ready for this to be over," she said in an interview. "I'm super excited to have a third baby though, but I know it's gonna be so stressful because everyone says the third one... that's the baby that makes you crazy. And I'm already crazy."
