Former "Bachelor" star Tenley Molzahn uses a heated Instagram post to address social media trolls who mom-shamed her over a photo of her with her newborn daughter, Rell.


"Bachelor" alum Tenley Molzahn seemed to get an early start with social media just two weeks after giving birth to her daughter. The television star took to Instagram with a sharp clasp back for the trolls who came after her. She wrote:

"Mom shaming... my goodness [...] I don't want the negativity or the shaming to steal our joy. And really, shame on those who shame others.."

Molzahn continued, marveling at how nasty and horrible those people were. She wrote about how she could feel the judgment thrown at her just because they could not see her daughter's nose and mouth in the angle that the photo offered.

To those who cared to hear her side of the story, she assured them that she and her husband, Taylor Leopold, were going to stop at nothing to make sure that their little one, Rell, was safe.


The television star also reassured her followers that she and her husband were in it for the long haul, and they intended to continue sharing the bundle of joy with the world.

She established that she never wanted to have to defend herself based on the assumptions that hateful people made about her and her baby. 

The much-needed clap back posted by Molzahn came just a little over two weeks after the 36-year-old welcomed her charming baby girl, Rell.


Molzahn recalled how she always felt sad and angry when her own friends experienced the bitterness of social media trolls who mom-shamed other women. Now that she was in that season, she felt the need to speak out about it and stand for what she knew was right. 

She thanked her supporters for their love and kindness and signed off by expressing how much she was enjoying sharing the early days of motherhood with her adoring fans.


The much-needed clap back posted by Molzahn came just a little over two weeks after the 36-year-old welcomed her charming baby girl, Rell, with her husband.

Rell Jaymes Leopold was born in the early hours of the morning on September 20, months after her mom and dad first revealed that they were expecting.


Fans could already tell that Rell's proud mama would do anything to keep negativity from their small family. The television star joined the long list of celebrity moms who had to clap back at mom-shaming trolls.

The list included model Chrissy Teigen, retired Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, and "Jersey Shore" star Deena Cortese. No anonymous troll was going to tell any of these fierce mamas how to take care of their own kids.
