Taking to Instagram stories, the beauty compared herself to Britney Spears, whose parenting skills were criticized in the media when she became a mother in her 20s.
‘We are all reflecting back on shaming Britney and calling her a bad mom when she drove with her baby in her lap. We talk about how we have to ‘do better’ as a culture.’ Emily began in her post.
‘Meanwhile my comments are filled with awful remarks about how I don’t deserve to be a mom. Shame on you all,’ she fired.

Ratajkowski concluded: ‘I don’t care if you hate me or hate celebrity (or just hate women) but it’s incredibly scary to become a parent and nobody deserves to be told by strangers that they’re a sh***y mother.’
Last month Emily got backlash for photos showing her holding her son Sylvester, who she welcomed with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in March, in an awkward way while posing in a bikini.
‘That’s not how you hold a baby @emrata – and your millions of followers shouldn’t be encouraged to do the same. Happy to give you some tips if you need them.’ Piers Morgan tweeted at the time after the image sparked scrutiny.

After the backlash Emily turned off the comments in her post.
Meanwhile, ahead of becoming a mom, the swimwear model revealed she felt ‘really lucky’ to be expecting a baby.
She said: ‘I’ve never really understood what it would be like to make a family and growing a family is an amazing eye opening experience and I feel really lucky.
‘I don’t know what motherhood is going to be like of course because this is my first time and everyone has such different experiences and perspectives. So, the best thing to do is just trust in the process and take each day at a time and then see where this ride takes me.’

However, Emily also previously admitted she found pregnancy ‘lonely’.
She explained: ‘My husband likes to say that ‘we’re pregnant’. I tell him that while the sentiment is sweet, it’s not entirely true. I resent that his entire family’s DNA is inside of me but that my DNA is not inside him.
‘It just seems unfair,’ I say, and we both laugh. It’s kind of a joke, but there is truth behind it. Pregnancy is innately lonely; it’s something a woman does by herself, inside her body, no matter what her circumstances may be. Despite having a loving partner and many female friends ready to share the gritty details of their pregnancies, I am ultimately alone with my body in this experience.’
