Brittany Kerr Aldean claps back at 'shamers' who criticized the new mom for going on vacation

 

She wasn't having any of it.

We all need a vacation from time to time. Sometimes that means leaving the country to stay at a more tropical locale, and sometimes, that also means leaving your kid at home so you and your partner can get some much-needed quality time. But when Brittany Kerr Aldean and her husband, country singer Jason Aldean, decided to do both, fans weren't too happy.

Four days ago, Brittany posted a photo of herself sitting inside a private plane, looking at a framed pic of her 3-month-old son, Memphis, with the caption, "Haven’t even left Nashville and I miss him so much it hurts." Upon seeing the post, which insinuated that she would be leaving her son behind during her travels, critics chimed in, saying things like, "Why not take him with you?" and "Omg leaving him already! I couldn’t do it!" ET reports. Rather than stay quiet, however, the new mom decided to dedicate an Instagram post to clap back at critics.

Haven’t even left Nashville and I miss him so much it hurts. 💙
🖤 My man looks goooood! (For all those who want him in cowboys boots and camo... go see him in concert) Healthy and Happy we are!!💋
Much needed vacay☀️ Just a word of wisdom for all the parent shamers... vacations are ok for new parents to take. Sometimes after being pregnant for almost a year, cooped up in a house for weeks at a time, you need a little sunshine and adult time. IT IS NOT OK to leave your ignorant comments. If you don’t agree with something, PLEASE... do me a favor and unfollow me. You will NOT be missed♥️ And for all the sweet, positive, happy people... we love you and thank you!!💋💋

Over the weekend, Brittany shared another photo—this time of herself hugging her husband by a beach in the Bahamas. In the caption she writes, "Much-needed vacay. Just a word of wisdom for all the parent-shamers: vacations are OK for new parents to take. Sometimes after being pregnant for almost a year, cooped up in a house for weeks at a time, you need a little sunshine and adult time."

Brittany's so right about that. I'm sure many of us would not have passed up an opportunity to go to the islands to relax months after giving birth, so let the couple enjoy their trip. As long as the baby is safe and taken care of, what's the problem?

The new mom also added, "IT IS NOT OK to leave your ignorant comments. If you don’t agree with something, PLEASE do me a favor and unfollow me. You will NOT be missed. And for all the sweet, positive, happy people, we love you and thank you!!"

Many fans came to Brittany's defense, bringing up the point that moms and dads need to make time for each other too. One user commented, "Sometimes parents just need to take a breath. It’s good for kids to be away from their parents sometimes. Grandparents love to spoil them and grandparents need their time with grandchildren also. To anyone that makes negative comments you have no idea what real life is about." Another fan wrote, "One of the BEST things you can do for your child is take care of their parents!"
