Earlier that day, she had posted a photo alongside fellow ABC reporter Kenneth Moton, expressing how much she had loved being able to see him.

Despite the photo being unrelated to her children and parenting, a male follower on Facebook dared to comment: "Who's raising your kids?"

Ginger didn't hesitate to be honest about receiving help when it comes to raising her children, something no mother should be shamed for, directly replying to him: "I am with the help of my husband and our nanny. You don't come from a home where both parents work? I do. And it was amazing."

She gave an important reminder to fans, insisting: "When people have an opinion/critique, it says more about them than it does about me. I'm so peaceful and grateful for the family I'm creating while fulfilling my career goals. It's not for everyone, but I'm not everyone, I'm me."

Ginger has even taken her children to work

Ginger also extended support to other working parents by saying: "I hope other new parents can feel the support and understanding that comes with all different parenting structures. There is no right or wrong if love, support and guidance surrounds the child… Everyone's village looks different. The point is, it takes one and I'm lucky to have them."

Fans did not hesitate to commend her for standing up for herself, writing: "You're my hero," and: "Funny no one asks dads that," as well as: "Keep doing you, you're an amazing mother and an amazing meteorologist."
