Traveling with a child’s NOT easy — especially when that child is not even 2 months old! But keeping that in mind, former ‘Bachelor’ stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici came up with a brilliant plan when they took their tiny son on his very 1st airplane ride. See the sweet thing they did for their fellow passengers here!
Sean Lowe, 32, and Catherine Giudici, 30, are new to the whole parenting thing, but they already seem like total pros! Boarding an airplane with their newborn baby, Samuel Thomas in tow, who was born last month, the little family approached “baby travel” in a super sweet and considerate way. We’re totally stealing this idea!
Catherine posted a pic to Instagram of a card she and Sean wrote to their fellow plane passengers, explaining their situation and offering a treat bag to each individual person onboard. “We brought a baby, BUT we also brought you treats. Call it even? :) Thanks for understanding! – The two with the infant,” the card read. How cute!
However, while we can totally appreciate their kind gesture, some of their followers thought they made the wrong move, commenting that kids should not be something to apologize for. “It’s a sweet gesture, and I’m sure people appreciated it, but I am not really a fan of this trend. It adds to the already prevailing mentality that babies and kids are an inconvenience that need to be dealt with and apologized for. The patience and understanding of those around you should be common courtesy, not bought,” someone wrote next to the photograph.

Another said, “It is unnecessary to apologize for bringing a baby on a plane. I comment bc she’s a public figure & I hate this ridiculous trend.” However, others could see the value in giving away tiny treat bags, and saw the gift as thoughtful. “I love y’all so much thank you for being the perfect example of what couples/parents should be,” one fan wrote.
Another gushed, “Being a parent is a challenge and as parents we should stick and support each other no matter what instead of judging each other. I would say if @catherinegiudici want to do this kind gesture to others than kudos to her.” Catherine and Sean welcomed their first child on July 2 and already they are super proud parents who can’t stop posting adorable pics of their little boy — and we are not hating it! I mean, just LOOK at that precious face!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — how do well do YOU think Catherine and Sean handled Samuel’s first flight? Was their gift a nice touch or did they go overboard?
