Self-proclaimed ‘hot mum’ Jen Ferguson says she won’t stop dressing however she likes – even if others say she should appear more mum-like.
Appearing on the TV show My Extraordinary Family Jen revealed that she gets judged all the time for her looks and outfits, and she’s even been called a gold-digger as her fiancé is twelve years older than her.
At 31 and pregnant, Jen says she still likes to “dress like the young girls” and that she wants to feel “sexy.” She adds that while she covers up slightly more now, due to pregnancy, she doesn’t want to stop being a ‘hot mum’ anytime soon.
Asked if his mum’s style embarrassed him, Jen’s son says “sometimes,” although he later adds that if she dressed and acted differently “she’d be different to how she is now, and I don’t want anything different to how she is.”
Talking about people’s reaction to her style, Jen says: “I honestly think that a lot of women are jealous because they don’t have the confidence I have. So I have kids and I can’t be hot anymore? No way.”
Showing off some of her outfits, Jen adds that she often faces judgement: “I think the biggest problem is that they think I’m a mom, I have sons, so I shouldn’t be showing this.
“But come on, we all have a chest, we all have a body.”
Another thing Jen feels she gets judged for is her choice to have cosmetic surgery, including a breast augmentation which she describes as one the best decisions she has ever made in her life.
“I love getting plastic surgery,” she says, “it makes me feel more confident. You know, some people disagree with that and they say ‘why would you do that? That’s so vain’
“But you know what? I have insecurities just like probably all other women in the world, and for me if I’m able to afford it, and able to do it, then I do it.”
She’s also faced criticism for her relationship with her fiance, with people calling her a gold digger as he is older and has money. Criticising this view Jen says, “I love him because I love him.”
Jen has one son from a previous relationship, while her fiancé Stephen has two children from a previous marriage, the couple are now expecting their first child together.
“My family has not reacted very well to my relationship with Jen,” says Stephen, “they’re very stubborn, they’re very old school and old-fashioned.”
However, his sons seem perfectly happy with their step-mum, and the couple tend to have a full house with all the children present.
With another child on the way, Jen appears to be dressed somewhat more modestly in some of her most recent Instagram pictures.
