July 31 (UPI) -- Tamon Hall is fed up with being shamed for being a working mom.
The 48-year-old television personality called out a critic on Instagram after filming for her new show, The Tamron Hall Show, which premieres Sept. 9.
Hall welcomed her first child, son Moses, with husband Steven Greener, in April. She posted a photo and video of herself on the set of her show Monday and responded after a person commented "Your poor baby must miss you."
"I am so sick of this. Can't wait to discuss 9/9/19. This mom shame lameness is so corny and toxic," Hall wrote in a post Tuesday. "Fyi my 'poor baby' is right here with me and when he's not he is in the loving arms of Dad, Grammy, Nanny ... yes I have a wonderful woman who helps me. My mom had her sisters and other women help her too. NO shame in women helping women."
"Knock it off with this nonsense. Let's talk about it @tamronhallshow," she said. "Oh and don't call this a 'rant' from Tamron. It's a reply and one I would say face to face."
The former Today host followed up with a photo of herself holding baby Moses. She sent love and support to other women in the caption.
"Love and hugs to all moms, 'other' moms, step moms, 'play' Moms (I get to take you home after we play), those still trying to be moms and those who say I don't want to be a mom," the star wrote.
"I did not set out to 'shame' the person who sent that comment. Where I am from when you say 'poor baby' that is not a compliment... like 'bless your heart,'" she said. "Now back to my poor baby lol. Keep smiling and doing your best. We can talk about anything as long as we start with respect."
Hall announced her pregnancy in March and shared a first photo of baby Moses on Instagram the next month.
"Moses & Mama!! I can't wait to introduce y'all to my #sonshine. Photo credit: Dad who can't stop crying tears of joy. Thank y'all for the love and support. It got us here," she wrote.
