Storm Keating expertly defends herself – after woman criticises her on Instagram

The Australian beauty was NOT impressed


Storm Keating has hit back at a woman on Instagram for comments she made about her son Cooper.

The blonde beauty, who is married to Boyzone star Ronan Keating, shared a picture of 7 month old Cooper on an airplane getting ready to take off.

She captioned the picture, “Buckling up for another flight.”

However, one woman wasn’t pleased to see the little tyke buckled up for another flight and left the comment “Poor bugger” on the snap.

But Storm was quick to respond and defend herself as a “fantastic Mummy” to Cooper.

“We think lucky bugger! We could easily employ nannies or staff to look after our little man while mummy & daddy have to work, but despite it taking more effort and organisation, we choose to take him almost everywhere with us,” she wrote.

“We stick together as a family as much as possible (which is a very privileged position to be in – not all families have that luxury!) Of course it’s not the easy option for @rokeating and I, but we’ll do whatever it takes for our little guy – we don’t want to miss a thing and we don’t want him to miss either of us also.

“Not if we can help it. For Cooper to have two parents who are so hands on despite their crazy lifestyle and work schedules is a blessing and it shows in Cooper… he is the happiest little baba who very rarely even cries (!) and who has been sleeping through the night since he was 7 weeks old (12hrs a night since he was 4.5 months old!).”

“He can go anywhere, sleep anywhere and his routine is flexible. He is so loved by so many (not to mention his big brother and sisters who live a plane flight away and would never get to see if he didn’t travel) and he is so content… I think that says it all really.

“Must be doing something right heh? Jumping on a plane is an adventure for him and the life experiences he has when he lands in different cities and countries is invaluable. I feel very proud actually. I’m a fantastic mummy and I know that in my bones.

“My husband is also an incredible father and my heart bursts every time Cooper’s face lights up when he sees him. Cooper is one very fortunate and lucky little man. If only all children in the world could be so loved and cared for.”

Fans were quick to praise Storm’s message and wished her and her family a safe flight.
