Armie Hammer's Wife Elizabeth Chambers Responds to Criticism over IG Video of Son, 2, Sucking His Father's Toes
Armie Hammer’s wife defended him passionately after he got criticized for letting their 2-year-old son suck on his toes and sharing it on social media; she also set the record straight.
Armie Hammer had a lesson in the dangers of sharing sensitive posts on social media after the Instagram video of his son sucking his toes got criticized; it prompted his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, to speak in his defense.

I have always loved Brioni’s designs and suits so when they asked me to do a campaign for their Spring/Summer 2019 line I leapt at the opportunity. Worth it just for this shirt, which is the most comfortable (and probably expensive) T-shirt I’ve ever worn. It was like being licked by puppies with silk tongues all over my body. #ad #brioni
LIKE MOST THINGS IN LIFE, IT’S JUST A PHASE
Following a post by the blogger Perez Hilton, on his Instagram, Chambers felt the need to speak up and clarify a few points that her husband got wrong.
The mum-of-two wrote that the video which Hammer had earlier said was seven minutes didn’t last that long. It was equally not 7 seconds but 5, and she pointed out that their son, Ford Douglas Armand, is in a phase where he likes to suck on toes.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there... Having kids with my wife @elizabethchambers was the best decision we ever made and has enriched my life so much more than I ever could have imagined. Thank you, Wife, for the gift of making me a father and also for having this picture made for me. It’s a pain in the ass to be working today and not being able to be with my family, but fortunately we have a whole lifetime of father’s days to celebrate the lives we made. #happyfathersday
Chambers noted that the video got shared to their family stream, and her actor husband should not have shared it on Instagram.
The baker ended her defence by making it clear that she and Hammer always put their children’s welfare above everything else.
DISGUSTING AND NOT EVEN FUNNY
Before the actor’s wife wrote in defence of the father-of-two, there had been several criticisms of the act by Ford, and the couple, seeing it as nothing but a joke.
An Instagram user called it,
“Disgusting, and not even funny,”
while another wrote,
“Not appropriate; just plain nasty.”
Others wrote that it weirded them out, while another Instagram user commented with a vomit emoji.
The video led to Hammer’s name trending on Twitter, and one user tweeted,
“Sometimes, you shouldn’t click on trending hashtags. I want those 7 seconds back.”
Adding at the end that the actor and Chamber needed help.
THE VIDEO THAT STARTED IT ALL
The video that showed the 2-year-old boy sucking his father’s toes got deleted when the backlash began, but not before TMZ obtained a copy of it.
Comments include "disgusting," "gross," and "TOTALLY NOT FUNNY." https://t.co/ER9PRVZpjx— Women's Health (@WomensHealthMag) July 29, 2019
In it, Hammer reclined on a sofa while Ford sucked on his big toe and the one following it. A voice which is most likely Chamber’s said in the background, “This is not normal,” and in the caption for the video, her husband called it,
“Foot fetish on fleek.”
The couple welcomed Ford in 2017, and they also share a 4-year-old daughter, Harper Grace.
Despite the blowback from the video, Hammer and Chambers are good parents, and so far, they’ve done an excellent job raising their two children.
