The woman claimed her husband was ‘very very very’ excited about the milestone, but it did not elicit the same feelings for her.
‘But I am not comfortable with the idea, I have my own kids,’ she added.
‘I am scared to tell my husband because he seems to be so happy of her asking me. How can I tell him? Am I being cruel?’
Many fellow parents left scathing comments on the now-deleted post, branding the stepmum as ‘cruel’.
‘Why are you so against this? You HAVE been her mum, all her life! I’d feel absolutely honoured. I’m trying to not to be rude here but you’re coming across really badly!’ one person wrote.
‘This is brutal and if I was you I'd question myself on why I want to not be seen as this kid's mum, especially when you've effectively raised her,’ another said.
