The pair left their daughter with a babysitter when they went out to dinner – leading Chrissy to be hit by a tirade of negative comments attacking their decision to leave her so early on.

John was quick to jump to the defence of his wife, tweeting: ‘Funny there’s no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame us both so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.’

This isn’t the first time the new mum has endured criticism of her parenting skills – she was also in the firing line after going on a night out nine days after Luna’s birth.

She then attempted to silence the trolls with a series of jovial Twitter posts – in one she posted some of the cruel comments accompanied by the phrase: “I went to dinner. People are P*****d. Good morning!’
