One of Coronation Street's youngest star and his girlfriend announced that they were expecting a baby together a few weeks ago.
Alex Bain's girlfriend, Levi Selby, who is also 16 shared this ultrasound picture on Facebook on the 25th of May.
There were a few well wishes from friends on the post, but it received a lot of hate, with one person even calling Levi a 'slapper'.
Selby's mother Judith Calvert rushed to her defence, telling the commenter not to 'judge my daughter by your own low standards'.
'Cowardly excuse of a human... JEALOUS BULLY springs to mind,' she added, followed by three laughing emoticons.
If anything, this retaliation led to more hate from the trolls:
'Disgusting! I'd be utterly ashamed if I was his parent,'
'Can't believe Alex Bain having a yute the kids 16 & his girlfriend looks like a hoodrat,'
'Has Alex Bain 16yrs old never heard of a condom?'
Despite all the negative publicity, 'Alex has been telling everyone he's going to be a father. He isn't keeping it a secret.'
'It's hard to tell if he's happy about it or not but he's definitely not ashamed of it.'
The two have been together since April last year.
