ZOE Laverne has faced scathing criticism for “selling photos” of her newborn baby online after welcoming the tiny tot in an “emergency c-section” alongside her fiance Dawson Day.
The TikTok sensation first announced her pregnancy in February with a photo of two positive pregnancy tests.
Zoe, 20, took to Instagram to announce the birth of her daughter Emersyn with sweet hospital photos.
The video creator shared two intimate pictures of her tiny new addition as she cradled her after the delivery.
However, in the caption, the young mother revealed that she had “dropped exclusive photos” of the child’s birth at the link in her bio.
“Thanks so much for supporting us!! I dropped some exclusive photos in my link that were extra special moments for me during the delivery!” she told fans.
“Of course I wouldn’t keep some of my other favorite photos from my fandom and am so excited to introduce you to Emersyn!” the TikTok star gushed.
Zoe then explained how giving birth took an “unexpected turn” as she was forced into having an “emergency c-section” after her placenta broke.
“Dawson and i are so excited for this journey and love you all so much! My birth story is a little crazy and definitely wasn’t something i expected.. i will be uploading a story time soon on the entire situation but i will explain it a bit in this post,” she elaborated.
“When i was trying to push her out the natural way my placenta busted and i was rushed into emergency c-section and almost lost my life but i am so blessed to be here with dawson and emersyn and i am so thankful that god didn’t chose to take me away so soon.. im so blessed i am here with the two people that mean the absolute world to me,” the creator finished.
However, fans were stunned that the new mom decided to “sell photos of her baby” for $15 apiece, as they ripped her for “exploiting” the newborn.
“Who makes ppl pay to see their baby’s pics?” one asked, while another laughed: “D**n it’s been three hours and ur already trying to make money off her.”
“Zoe you’re using your child to make money?” another asked, adding: “Nice parenting beb.”
“You’re already exploiting your child goodnight,” a final mocked.
Zoe and her fiance Dawson Day, 20, announced their pregnancy in February with photos of two positive tests on Instagram.
She told her fans in the caption that she was “really excited to have y’all watch my baby grow.”
The TikTok sensation also shared a picture alongside her future hubby, writing: “you are going to be such a great daddy!!”
The young star thanked her man “for changing my life so much and making me the happiest girl on earth.”
