TV host Karl Stefanovic mocks Meghan Markle for 'acting like 1st mum ever' after revealing Lilibet's teething troubles
MEGHAN Markle has been mocked for acting like “she's the first mum ever” after telling Ellen DeGeneres about her daughter’s teething troubles.
The Duchess of Sussex's comments to the US chat show host about Lilibet’s significant milestone were discussed on Australia’s Today programme.
As she gushed about her “happy life” in California, Meghan said she was looking for "anything to relieve" her six-month-old's pain during the candid chat.
But after a clip was played, Today host Karl Stefanovic sarcastically gave two thumbs-up and said: “It's like she's the first mum ever!”
Pulling a face, co-host Alison Langdon tried to stick up for Meghan saying: “Stop, it’s important stuff.”
Dad-of-four Stefanovic wasn’t having it though, adding: “When you get two!”
In defence of the Duchess, Langdon said: “It was nice to see she wasn't dumping on the royals.”
“It was nice to get an insight into her life at home,” she added.
“Even just by being there she is dumping on the royals,” hit back Stefanovic, who has been scathing of Meghan in the past.

In October, he shocked viewers by suggesting the Queen might use her new walking stick as a weapon to "beat up" his colleague
The appearance on Ellen also saw Meghan pretend to be a CAT, drink milk from a baby bottle and sing "meow, meow, meow" in a cringe-worthy sketch.
And in a rare glimpse into the couple's family life, she told how their six-month-old has already hit some crucial milestones.
The duchess said she was looking for “anything to relieve” Lilibet’s teething pain, to which Ellen replied: “Tequila, anything.”
Meghan joked: “That’s Auntie Ellen for you” and the talk show host accepted: “That’s why I don’t have kids.”
Lilibet was born in the US in June, although it is not yet confirmed when or where her Christening will be.
Prince Charles sparked rumours the newborn could be baptised with holy water from the River Jordan this week after being gifted "five or six bottles" during his trip to the Middle East.
But a source revealed the Sussexes will spend Christmas in the US, suggesting they haven't planned a trip to the UK any time soon.
