Amy – who will welcome a little girl in May – was shocked to discover fans believed she was drinking alcohol, as she explained that it was a soft drink version of Prosecco by Scavi and Ray – which is owned by Steps’ Claire Richards.
Sharing a picture of the bottle, she wrote: ‘So it seems I’ve been criticised following a set of photos which surfaced yesterday. I’m pretty hurt that people would think I am the sort of person who would put my baby at risk.’Under no circumstances would I ever do that. Being a mum is something I’ve dreamt of for so long and I wouldn’t ruin it for an act of selfishness. The pictures you are all referring to have been taken way out of context.’
She continued: ‘I’m a girl that loves a glass of fizz, but since finding out I was pregnant I’ve not gone near a drop of alcohol. Instead, I’ve found a non-alcholic version of my favourite drink (prosecco) by @Can you change your insta to @scavirayuk which means I can still enjoy myself and have a chat with my friends over a drink!’I hope this clears it up for anyone that was doubting me. I will always put my baby first.’
Amy added to MailOnline: ‘I 100% was not drinking alcohol and my prosecco like beverage was actually a non-alcoholic brand I really love to drink, which I even had at my baby shower.
‘My baby means everything to be and I would never put her in a dangerous position like this.’
