Alexa PenaVega Defends Herself Against 'Ugly' Parenting Assumptions After Son's Injury

When firing back at online trolls accusing her of slamming a door 'in a fit of rage,' which made her 2-year-old son Kingston lose his fingertip, the 'Spy Kids' star admits that 'social media can be really frustrating.'

AceShowbiz - Alexa Vega a.k.a. Alexa PenaVega has reacted to social media trolls' "ugly" assumptions of her parenting. The "Spy Kids" star didn't waste her time to defend herself after being accused of slamming the door in a "rage," which caused her son Kingston to lose his fingertip.

"Social media can be really frustrating," the 33-year-old singer/actress wrote in an Instagram post she uploaded on Thursday, October 21. "But after seeing the comments about people questioning my parenting and assuming I slammed a door in a fit of rage... absolutely not."

Alexa further explained that she "simply closed the door." She added, "That is literally what happened. I know I will never be able to please everyone and people will be ugly to be ugly... and for those people all I can do is pray for them."

A day earlier, Alexa shared the shocking news on her Instagram Story, revealing she trapped her 2-year-old son's fingers in the hinge of a bathroom door, while helping him get ready for bed on October 15. "His first finger is bruised and a little bloody... but his middle finger took the brunt of it and was severed from the first knuckle near the tip," she wrote.

Alexa admitted that the incident "was the most traumatic thing we've had to go through as a family." She then confessed that she suffered from mom guilt over her son's severed finger mishap. She added, "The mom guilt and shame was really hard to get through."

"But thank God for prayer and for the sweet little bruiser Kingston is. Carlos was amazing and swooped in like Superman to take care of our family," Alexa continued. She went on to reveal that although the severed portion of the finger was not able to be re-attached at the hospital, they're all coping remarkably well with the injury.

"It took a minute to process what happened," Alexa added. "If anything it made us all love each other even more and humbled us completely. Thankfully, Kingston is already doing flips like nothing happened... Gosh I love my babies!"

Elsewhere in her post, Alexa assured her fans and followers that her son will be "more than fine." She wrote alongside a smiley face emoji, "Poor baby. But the other 9 (fingers) are so cute! He'll be more than fine!"
