"I think a lot of them were horrified at the idea that I would even have a baby right now," he revealed.

"I guess that comes with [it]. I mean, I probably should know better as anything you post on social media is going to be scrutinised."

Jay, who rose to fame as one fifth of The Wanted, went on to discuss the type of father he wants to be in the future.

"Yeah, everything can be scrutinised. So I should have probably known better than to just post like a baby foot and not say anything," he added.
