“Don’t worry, we keep things at bath temp for Ruth and I,” the Bachelor alum captioned her March 2020 Instagram Story after taking a dip with her daughter.
In July 2020, Martinez clapped back at an Instagram troll who called breast-feeding her toddler “psychologically damaging,” writing, “This makes me want to nurse her until, like, age 7. If a child is voluntarily nursing … there is NOTHING psychologically damaging about nursing through and even past the toddler years.”
She shared a video of her son Franklin’s birth the following month despite being “nervous” about showing the “raw and primal” footage. Martinez wrote, “This is a moment worth sharing; so in advance — f–k the haters.”
In August 2020, Martinez laughed off an Instagram troll slamming her decision to let Ruth watch Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s “WAP” music video. “There’s always one,” she captioned a screenshot of a message reading, “Why the F–K would you let your BABY watch a music video like that?! Sick.”
The California native defended photos of her son, Franklin, wearing a bow two months later. “We should be able to normalize being able to put boys in bows and things that are girly,” Martinez said on her October 2020 Instagram Story. “What the f–k is girly about a bow? It’s literally a piece of ribbon or fabric tied in a certain way. That’s dumb.”
In January 2021, Martinez clapped back at claims that her daughter didn’t have a “proper sleep schedule.” She wrote via Instagram: “I know this is well-intentioned but it’s rude and unprompted. She DOES have a sleep schedule we established well over a year ago but she’s been waking up a lot over the past couple [of] months because we have a tiny house and she hears Frank crying while we’re trying to get HIM on a sleep schedule (even though we have literally four sound machines). Reading messages like this just makes me feel more frustrated. It’s not helpful.”Back to top
