Taking to Instagram stories to express her feelings, Niamh shared: “I very rarely rant or give out about anything on my stories but something did annoy me yesterday.

“I had three different people come up to me, and we were just chatting away and they were saying hello to Harper, we were having the chats [and they] were asking how everything was going, all that general chit chat…

“And [there] were comments like ‘Oh you’ll go again soon, you’ll keep them close together, you’ll have another baby.’

“I just thought that was such a forward thing to say to somebody, like number one you don’t know anyone’s situation, number two you don’t know if somebody would even be able to have another child, for whatever reason,” she continued.


“Number three you don’t know if they want more kids, it’s just really, really assumptive and it’s kind of putting a pressure like maybe I only want one child, that’s not saying that I do.”

Niamh then asked her followers to be “mindful” when asking people such personal questions, adding: “I just think it’s wrong.”

Before signing off, she reminded everyone that a women’s sole purpose in life isn’t to get pregnant and give birth.

“Maybe they’ve other goals they want to pursue? Like getting back to work, and working towards career goals, or whatever your goals might be.”
