SPECIAL TREATMENT

Actress blasted by mum shamers for admitting her oldest son is her ‘favourite’ – as she claims they have a ‘special bond’ her other two kids can’t match

AMERICAN actress Jaime Pressly has come under fire for freely admitting that her eldest son is her “favourite” child.

The My Name Is Earl star, 42, from North Carolina, said she has a “special bond that no one else will ever match” with 12-year-old Dezi – not even her one-year-old twins Leo and Lenon.

After Jaime said she has no qualms with selecting her favourite kid, social media users were quick to say her confession may inflict lifelong damage on her other kids.

Jaime uploaded a photo on October 5 of her smiling with “favourite son” Dezi James Calvo, who she shares with ex-fiancé Eric Cubiche.

She wrote: “Best time ever hangin with my favorite son, Dezi. That’s right I said it. I have a favorite son although I luv all 3 of my boys with everything I have in me.

“Dez and I have a special bond that no one else will ever match because we’ve grown up together. #firstborn #iloveyou.”

Jaime also has the twins with boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi and her followers were quick to point this out.

One Instagram user wrote: “I feel so sorry for your other boys... I can't imagine how this must make them feel. This is heartbreaking.”

Another wrote: “I really truly hope that this is not how you really feel. If so, why use social media to make your other children feel bad.”

Meanwhile, one slammed her by saying: “That's an insane thing to say when u have other children.”

Best time ever hangin with my favorite son, Dezi. That’s right I said it. I have a favorite son although I luv all 3 of my boys with everything I have in me.

However, some mums defended Jaime and said that they too are open and honest about having a preferred child.

One said: “I have 6 kids and always say my favorite is my first born. Sorry, he is. I love them all but the first is special.”

Another wrote: “Too many people/parents are unwilling to be truthful and say things like this.”

Jaime, who has starred in My Name is Earl, Joe Dirt, and Mom, has not yet responded to the debate.

We shared how one mum also admitted she had a favourite child and says so does EVERY mum (if they’d only admit it).

Previously a mum-of-four was brand ‘disgusting’ as she boasts about having a favourite child on This Morning.
