Charlotte Crosby on mum-shaming fears as she gets tattooed with dead Nan’s ashes
Charlotte Crosby has opened up about letting cameras into her home with new baby Alba, revealing that she's worried about being shamed over her parenting on Charlotte in Sunderland.
The 33-year-old gave birth to her first child Alba, who she shares with her businessman boyfriend Jake Ankers, in October last year – and series two of her BBC Three reality show.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with OK!, the Geordie Shore star said that being a mum has been "a walk in the park so far" but that she's worried that the "mam police" might have something to say once they see the show.
“All you’ve got to do is put the nappy in the wrong bag and all of a sudden you’re condemned,” she said. “I won’t know until it comes out whether or not having the cameras following the motherhood journey is going to be a problem.”
The reality series follows Charlotte and Jake as they begin their parenting journey – and also sees Charlotte dedicate a tattoo of baby Alba’s name to her late grandmother Jean by mixing the ink with her ashes.
“I saw someone get this done on MTV show Just Tattoo Of Us – I had the idea and just really wanted to go through with it,” Charlotte remembers. “I just thought it was beautiful and getting my daughter’s name seemed to make it even more sentimental.”
Charlotte's nana Jean died last year, shortly after the birth of Alba, with the reality TV star paying tribute to her on The Masked Singer Australia.
The new mum took everyone by surprise when she revealed herself to be the celebrity behind Space Fairy, singing a rendition of Elvis classic Always On My Mind.
Charlotte and her family recently celebrates Alba's first birthday party, telling OK! that she was "stressed" in the lead up to the big day.
"I was trying to make sure that the party had a little bit for everyone. But honestly, it was so satisfying watching how much everyone loved it," she said.
She added that she's shunned the party girl lifestyle. "Becoming a mother has made me very unbothered by alcohol, partying and stepping foot inside a nightclub," she said. "I don’t think I’ve been in a nightclub since they’ve been open after Covid, I’ve got no interest in going. They do nothing for me."
Charlotte in Sunderland airs Wednesday 8th November at 9pm on BBC Three
