Someones Mummy, thanks for replying to me. Unfortunately I still dont understand how I was putting words in your mouth....Im not sure if maybe you were saying 'you' to me and meaning Benji or someone else or something? Im kind of confused by a few of your posts but its alll good.
Wouldn't it be lovely if her management company donated the money they tried to spend on the photos to keep this quiet to QUIT or to a maternity hospital now that it's all been made public.
One could only wish.
Mmmm ham swich. I could go one right now... Only 29 weeks to go lol
I meant "In my opinion the fact that she feels guilty is irrelevant as she was effectively forced to come forward". I don't have any particularly judgmental feelings towards her in regards to her smoking. I was a smoker myself for a long time so I know the struggles she faces. I won't judge her one way or another on that matter because cigarette addiction is a physical thing that can be difficult to control.
What I was judging is that she admitted that she hid what she was doing from her family and friends. I was judging her lack of integrity towards her own family. I couldn't give a flying fruitbats about whether or not she was honest with the public, it's none of our business. But she admitted that she intentionally hid her actions from those closest to her and that tells me a lot more about her as a person than her actions in relation to a chemical addiction.
As for who cares... The OP I assume, as she asked for thoughts and opinions? If you don't like or agree with my opinion that's fine, but "Who cares?" is a bit harsh given that it's a public forum where the opinion of other members of the public was asked .

I agree with the her body, her choice viewpoint. I just don't think you can wrap up smoking while pregnant and put a bow on it, no matter what the reason.
There really are women out there that do everything the dr tells you to do or not do I.e. not too much coffee, no alcohol, no salad/cheese/ham anything that can cause listeria and no smoking. It's only 9 months and it's nothing to give up that stuff for the sake of your unborn child.
As i said, each to their own but for some people, seeing a pregnant mother smoke provides an emotional response, you can't help it. For some women, the first natural instinct is to protect that unborn child. Its very upsetting to watch. When I see a pregnant woman be it Chrissy swan or anyone else smoking while pregnant, yes I do judge. Because all I think of is that unborn child who doesn't get a choice.
Those saying that kids born to smokers are all healthy, well I don't think you can say that till the child is all grown up and nothing has shown itself.
I don't think she deserves to be singled out and villified, especially as lots of people do it but it does stir up a debate which can only be a good thing if it reduces the amount of women smoking while pregnant.
