Don’t cross Anna Saccone Joly – especially if you’re going to get her mum involved.

Not everybody feels the need to snap back to their original body size after just having a baby; But if you’re a public figure, there’s always going to be some troll with an opinion on this. However, one such person learned today that they probably shouldn’t come for Anna Saccone Joly with their body-shaming bullsh*t.

The Saccone Jolys posted a photo from Legoland earlier this week.

Jonathan, Anna, Eduardo, Emilia and new arrival Alessia spent the day at the theme park, as part of a sponsored campaign with UK newspaper the Sun. This drew some criticism from fans, due to the Sun’s tactless and insulting coverage of the Manchester terrorist attack this week.

But one overzealous troll took this as an opportunity to insult Anna’s post-baby body.

Posting a Tweet gloating at Anna’s lack of “thigh gap” and photoshopping of the photo, the Twitter rando went one further; and attempted to insult Anna by comparing her to her mother.

Anna, having none of it, turned the insults into a positive.

“I happen to think my mum is beautiful,” she responded in a handful of Tweets. “Body shame me all you want but body shame my family and you better check yourself.”

“My poor beautiful mum lost her brother in the same year,” she added. “She has been through so much, she’s my best friend & my hero.”

Say what you like, but Anna definitely has her heart in the right place when it comes to uplifting her family!
