They’ve got one of the strongest marriages in showbiz. So it’s no wonder that Pete and Emily have fallen victim to case of the green eyed monster on more than one occasion.
Now the mum-of-two has confessed that she has had to endure the wrath of trolls who attack everything from her marriage to her appearance.
Opening up in an interview with OK! magazine the 27-year-old admits to struggling with the negative attention she gets two years after tying the knot to her signer beau.
“The downside [of fame] is people being nasty,” she says.
“In the past I’ve read people criticising me and Pete, whether it’s the age difference or our appearance, and I find it hard when people say I’m too young to be with him – my skin is not thick enough and I find it very upsetting.”
Emily MacDonagh fights back
She also defended the couple’s 17-year age gap.
“He’s in his forties and he looks great. He still comes home to me and gives me cuddles.”
And it’s for this very reason that the trained doctor has sworn off social media.
“I don’t have social media because otherwise you’re opening yourself up to that criticism… you don’t want to think your kids are reading negative things.”
Although Emily does make the odd appearance on her hubby’s Instagram account she does draw the line at Amelia, three, and Theo, five months, making their debut in a post.
Speaking to New magazine in March Pete revealed that Emily was irked by the above snap:
“I feel like I say this every week, but I’m sure I’ll be in the doghouse with Emily again! But to tell you the truth, I’m starting to get a slight kick out of it, ha ha.
“I couldn’t resist sharing this photo of Mills picking daffodils in our garden on Instagram.”
They may not agree with each other all the time, but we know that the couple are still as close as ever. In fact, they’re planning to spend as much time together as possible before Pete heads to LA to start filming for his new flick. Awww!
