Its a pride thing: Amanda Holden defends sharing photos of her daughters online

Amanda Holden has spoken out about her decision to share images of her children online, having previously kept their identities private.

The Britain's Got Talent judge and radio host is a proud mum who shares two daughters with her husband Chris; 13-year-old Lexi and seven-year-old Hollie. 

Recently the TV personality has opted to showcase her kids more online, and has explained her reasoning for doing so while appearing on This Is Mothership: Sofa Sessions.

Her change of heart came as a result of just being "too proud of them" to keep them hidden from her online followers.

"We did wait for a long time and then they've ended up all over my Instagram. For so long we did shots of them from the back and as they've grown up it's a pride thing, you end up being so proud of them," she told Gemma Rose Breger and Sam Silver on the web series.

"I listened very intently to my husband, he's not in the public eye, he doesn't really come to events with me," she added.

Amanda emphasised Chris' intentions to protect his kids; "He's very private and he wanted to keep them private but the minute he said ''Lexi looks blinking gorgeous you have to post that.''

Lexi gets quite embarrassed but the youngest loves it- She says; ''Post it mummy post it.'' So they're not private anymore."

We're not surprised that the judge can't help but share her pictures with the world- Her daughters are adorable.

Fans are quick to point out the resemblance between Amanda and her eldest child, Lexi. The mother-daughter pair are the absolute image of each other.

Amanda recently revealed on her Heart Radio breakfast show that she asked her doctor if she could wear stilettos while having a C-section, and arrived to the hospital in full glam mode.
