Ginger shared her response to the criticism on Instagram

"That person has it wrong but I can't say that there aren't sacrifices. Both mom, dad, grandparents, whomever makes up the village. There are sacrifices as a parent no matter what you do and all forms of parenting should be respected, including parents that can't work because childcare is too expensive, don't work because they choose not to… I admire it all.

"You can be a parent that stays home, you can be a parent that works outside of the house… you just have to be the best parent you can be. Or don't be a parent if you don't want (the whole society being obsessed with having children is not for everyone)."

Ginger concluded: "I wake up with gratitude every day that I have had a chance at being a parent. Not everyone gets this opportunity and I'll keep doing my best."

Her fans were quick to rally around and offer their support. "Well said Ginger! I just wish everyone would mind their own business and keep their noses out of other peoples. Keep being you!" one told the star.
