Reporter hits back at trolls saying she risks 'leaving her kids motherless' by reporting in Ukraine


Nine reporter Amelia Adams hits back at Twitter trolls saying she risks ‘leaving her children motherless’ by reporting on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

Channel Nine reporter Amelia Adams has taken a troll for criticising her for travelling to the Ukraine to report on the country’s conflict with Russia.

The 38-year-old posted a photo of a cruel message she’d received on Twitter from a follower claiming she risks ‘leaving her two children motherless’ by reporting on the conflict from the frontline.

‘As a mother of young children yourself, I find it inconceivable that you would risk leaving your children motherless by entering a war zone just to make a name for yourself,’ the note read.

Amelia responded: ‘Thanks for your concern, but I’ve been in TV for nearly 20 years, and a parent for 8 of those.’

‘I’m here to do my job, and my children are proud of me,’ she said.

The journalist, who currently works as Nine’s U.S. Correspondent, arrived in Ukraine earlier this month while her husband, Luke, and their two children remain in LA.

It comes after Amelia was forced to defend herself last month after a troll criticised her parenting skills.

She hit back at a troll who branded her a ‘disappointment’ for working while her husband stays home with the kids.

After Amelia tweeted about a Greek food truck, the troll responded: ‘Maybe you could take some gyros home to your family if you ever go back, or will ya husband want to throw nappies at you now.’

‘I am still blown away by your solo parenting story, so I don’t enjoy you anymore, what a disappointment,’ they added.

Firing back, Amelia wrote: ‘Strange how I solo parented frequently for several years when my husband travelled for work, yet no one ever (let alone repeatedly) criticised him or called him a disappointment.’

Many of the journalist’s followers rushed to her defence to show their support for her as a working mum, including former Today show co-host Deborah Knight.

‘Bugger off with the criticism, Gerald! Amelia is a gun and how she and her hubby manage their family life is THEIR business,’ Deb snapped.

Another follower wrote: ‘The world is changing whatever works sometimes the father stays home while the wife works. There is no set rules nowadays.’

Amelia left Sydney with her family in 2018 to work as Nine’s Europe Correspondent in London.

At the time, she described the role as her ‘dream job’ and said that it wouldn’t have been possible without her husband.

‘It shouldn’t be such a big deal that a mum is doing this but I do believe it’s a great message that Nine is sending,’ she explained.

‘Also, I want my children to know that mum works hard.’
