Ginger's sons look so grown up

Ginger's post comes after she responded to a cruel message on social media that claimed her children will "resent" her when they grow up.

The ABC star shared a screenshot of the tweet in question on Tuesday, which read: "Your kids will resent you when they grow up. For leaving them during their most vulnerable time in life. We were lied to. Really can't have it all."

In response, Ginger wrote in part: "That person has it wrong but I can't say that there aren't sacrifices. Both mom, dad, grandparents, whomever makes up the village.

Ginger marked the 'big' day on social media

"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."

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."
