Bachelor Nation fans took to Reddit to slam Ashley I. for giving her future son self-esteem issues before he was even born. Many took the caption as her saying her unborn child could never be as cute as his older brother, Dawson.

Check out some of the reactions:

  • Is she assuming her other children won’t be as cute? Or is she saying she’s always going to favor one child over the other bc he’s better looking?
  • Everything I hear about Ashley and Jared Iaconetti is against my will
  • Joke or not that’s messed up.
  • She can’t imagine another kid being as cute as this one
  • Ashley I is just beyond obnoxious and I can’t believe anyone likes her
  • I usually defend Ashley I but she shouldnt have said this. the only way it can be interpreted is comparing her current son to the unborn one. whether it be for looks or whatever else. not great.
  • She’s already comparing them and the little brother hasn’t even been born yet? Not a great sign.
  • Ashley is an extremely bizarre person.

Do you think Ashley Iaconetti was comparing her future son’s looks to her eldest child’s? Sound off in the comments.
