'We've got the best home movies ever': TOWIE star Billie Faiers insists she doesn't regret putting her daughter on TV from birth (and defends decision to FILTER a snap of her baby son)
- EXCLUSIVE: Billie Faiers, 27, says she doesn't regret putting Nelly in TOWIE
- She says they have the 'best home movies ever' thanks to her reality TV career
- Billie also defended using a filter on her baby photos, saying everyone uses them
Lots of mums love updating their social media followers with adorable pictures of their children, with many proudly showing off the latest milestone reached or the cute new outfit their little darling is sporting that day.
But posts from celebrity mum Billie Faiers, 27, aren't always met with approval from her legions of fans, who have followed the star since her debut on TOWIE.
Earlier this month the Essex girl was critcised for putting a filter on picture of her baby son Arthur and his big sister Nelly, three. She has also experienced a backlash as a result of her decision to allow her children in front of the TOWIE cameras - a choice the young mum stands by.
Speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, Billie said she looks at Nelly's TOWIE appearances as 'the best home movies ever', and slammed her critics, calling on mums to be less judgmental and more supportive of one another.

Billie, who has just launched a campaign with personalised gift website Getting Personal, joined The Only Way Is Essex in series two and left after series 18.
The reality TV show documented her pregnancy, and her daughter Nelly made her first on-camera appearance as a newborn.
Billie has defended her decision to put Nelly in front of the camera at such a young age, and insisted Nellie will tell her if she doesn't want to be on screen.
She told FEMAIL: 'I think for us we kind of feel like we've got the best home movies ever, so much is there. She's now getting used to seeing herself. The other day I was showing her a magazine and there were pictures of her and she's so intrigued it's hilarious.
Her Instagram followers criticised this picture, saying she had airbrushed her children. Billie told FEMAIL she had only used a filter, which 'everyone uses'

'She said: ''I can't believe I'm in this book mummy!'' It was really funny. I think when she's older and if she doesn't want to be filmed, I'm not worried because she's definitely very vocal.'
Earlier this month Billie shared a sweet picture of Nelly and Arthur, her children with partner Greg Shepherd, happily posing together on a fluffy white rug.
Instagram users flooded the page with comments accusing the mum of airbrushing her children, which she denied, insisting it was a filter.
Billie said: 'I just took a photo and put a filter on it with the flash. It looked... pure, they're babies they're going to look pure anyway, but it was literally just a filter.

The mum of two believes all of her Instagram posts will attract both negative and positive comments so she doesn't give the reaction too much thought
'It was such a nice photo that I wanted to share it and I got a lot more positives than negatives, but there were a few people that were commenting saying I'd edited it. It was a filter, in this day and age people use filters all the time.'
Billie called on other mums to be more supportive of each other, but admitted there would always be those with negative comments to make.
She said: 'I feel like sometimes no matter what you do you can always get criticised. Everyone's going to have an opinion and I think when you are putting yourself out there on social media, you've just got to kind of accept it.'
'Everyone's got their own way of doing things. I think as mums we should all support each other - because everyone's situations are different - and not be so judgmental.'
The reality TV star is looking forward to spending Christmas with her family
Billie who has launched a Christmas range with Getting Personal, says she's already getting into the festive spirit.
She said: 'When I do my Christmas shopping I love putting my own personal stamp on gifts that I get for my friends and family. I think it's always really nice to get something a bit different and special.
'It's just a really lovely brand and I just hope everyone really likes the stuff.'
