Amy, 32, has made it clear that she and Richie’s father came to the joint decision that their son would not appear on social media or join her on Towie.
But the Essex star has been forced to defend her decision yet again after being questioned by fans.
During an Instagram Q&A, one follower asked: “Does Richie live with you?”
Setting the record straight about Richie’s absence from her social media, a frustrated Amy replied: “Okay so I’m going to address this once and for all, Richie my beautiful son lives with me.
“My god he is so very handsome yet so bloody hardwork.
“We decided to keep him off social media, which me and Richie’s dad decided on.
“The amount of negative comments and horrible messages I get on a day-to-day basis isn’t very nice, but at home we are the most perfect family.
“It sometimes gets me down the comments I get about not loving my son.
“Little Richie is very clingy and a proper mummy’s boy, Polly was never a mummy’s girl.
“He is a very sweet beautiful boy and looks very much like me everyone says.”
Amy previously defended her decision to put her daughter Polly on screen – but not her son Ritchie.
At the time, the TV star said she was flooded with messages from fans demanding to know why her so doesn’t appear on her social media or in TV shows.
She told The Sun: “Putting her on the show was obviously something I needed to think about very carefully, especially as I don’t put Ritchie on social media.
“I want to clear this up too because I get a lot of messages on social media every single day saying ‘why do you always put up pictures of your daughter and not your son or why is Polly on the show and not Ritchie’. ‘Do you love your daughter more? etc’.
“I must get about 20 messages a day about Ritchie, but basically me and Ritchie’s dad agreed together not to put Ritchie on social media or TOWIE.
“We won’t put him on social media or TV until he is old enough to make that decision himself.”
Amy announced that she was expecting twins – a baby boy and a baby girl – in a sweet post earlier this year.
The Essex favourite said she’s decided on a boy’s name but is still debating on girl’s name.
She told fans: “I think when our darling girl is here I will know her name straight away after seeing her.”
It comes after fans of Amy were certain that she had gotten engaged after spotting a clue on Instagram.
The star escaped to a luxury hotel and spa with her boyfriend Billy Delbosq and fans think the pair might have cemented a huge milestone.
Amy and businessman Billy, 38 dedicated to go on a romantic getaway to The plush Grove Hotel and Spa in Hertfordshire.
The pair wasted no time in posting to social media to show off their staycation, but fans got excited by the cryptic messaging.
In a joint post, Billy posted a selfie where the pair were seen cosying up together as they snuggled to keep warm in casual attire.
But he hinted at a possible engagement with the caption: “2 days away with my future wife.. My baby Mumma.. My everything.”
