Giovanna Fletcher, the wife of boyband favourite Tom, has hit out at a stranger who criticised her body just one week after she welcomed her second child.

The mum-of-two shared a photo of her body on Instagram to recount a story in which a stranger commented on her stomach and said she still had “mummy tummy”.

"A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say, 'Oh look, Mummy's still got her tummy,'" wrote Fletcher on Instagram.

"This was 11 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.'"

The mum revealed that she is proud of her body, which has brought her two children into the world.

"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," wrote Fletcher.

"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."

Giovanna gave birth to her second son Buddy with Tom last month, who joined two-year-old Buzz who the pair welcomed in 2014.
