Within minutes the popular blogger’s Facebook page and the social media pages of the news outlets reporting on the announcement were flooded with negative comments aimed towards the 33-year-old.
A lot of the critics were unhappy with the mum-of-six’s comments around abortion.
“We are not ready for this and I am petrified, babies terrify me,” she wrote in her Facebook announcement.
“But are we happy? Pigs in s***. Well…. I’m hormonal, I considered having an abortion this morning because Densy slept in.”
Hall has now responded to the criticism in a follow up Facebook comment.
“A lot of people are angry that I joked about abortion,” she began her post. “Actually, I was dead set serious.”
The mum-of-six said she did consider an abortion and she actually called her sister to talk about it.
“I am pro choice, I always have been and I believe in normalising abortions, they shouldn’t be a dirty secret that we don’t discuss in public forums.
“That said, I consider abortions and miscarriage/fertility issues two very separate topics. And I would never joke about the latter.”
Hall finished up her post by apologising to those who had been offended by her comments.
“So I am sorry for offending those that were offended. It wasn’t intended to offend.”
