Little People's Audrey Roloff claps back at fans who called her a 'bad mom' for letting kids play in front of fireplace

DURING her pregnancy Audrey Roloff was slammed as a 'bad mom' for having her kids near an open fire, now that her baby boy is here she's hitting back.

The reality star, 30, shared a video of herself snuggled up with baby Radley, born earlier this month.

She made sure to note that the fire was crackling in the background — a safe distance away.

Audrey then shared another fireside photo of her and Radley, this time with the baby smiling ever so slightly.

The backlash came in October, late in the Little People, Big World star's pregnancy.

She posted a photo of her older kids, Ember and Bodhi, playing Candyland in front of the fireplace.

A fire was burning at the time, but both children were away from the flames and being watched by an adult.

The clip was reposted on Reddit, where one fan said they were "getting anxious" watching while another added: "Holy s**t that's anxiety inducing."

Audrey and her family appear to spend a lot of time camped out in front of the fire place.

The author recently shared her first picture of her family of five posing in front of a darkened fire place.

In the pic, Audrey, husband Jeremy Roloff, Ember, and Bodhi posed with baby Radley.

The family was all smiles as they cozied together with the newest addition to the crew.

Audrey captioned the sweet snap: "Our first picture as a family of 5 and of course it would be in front of the fire. A little blurry, but that's fitting for how these days have been."

Fans flooded the comments with positivity, this time ignoring her and her children's proximity to potential danger.

One commenter: "What a beautiful family!"

Another added: "You are just all so adorable."


Audrey's adorable post comes after she admitted that she has been struggling since Radley's birth.

She told fans she was "physically exhausted" and "sleep deprived" following her baby boy's birth.

Audrey shared a mirror selfie on her way out the door, confessing in the caption: "I look better than I feel here… As much as my physical body said don't go, I knew it would be good for my mental and emotional health.

"So despite being physically exhausted and sleep deprived, still wearing a giant pad under my dress, and no bra because of boob issues… I went."

She previously told fans she was "hurting" and "crying tears of pain" following her son's birth.

Audrey shared a picture of herself in bed, saying: "This is what you hardly ever see on the other side of the screen. An overflowing postpartum nightstand with a very tired, hurting, recovering mama.

"Tears of joy as she swoons over her newborn baby and tears of pain as she aches in too many places to count."


Audrey and Jeremy welcomed their son earlier this month.

The LPBW alum shared a photo of herself birthing the baby in a tub.

In an Instagram Story, she could be seen cradling her newborn son while sitting in the water.

Audrey was photographed looking up at Jeremy with a smile on her face.

He grazed her face with his hand.

She captioned the post: "Can't wait to share his birth story with you guys."

The couple announced that they were expecting in July.
