Allison Langdon fires back at Sam Armytage's "working mum" comments

Allison Langdon fires back at Sam Armytage's "working mum" comments

Just as Samantha Armytage bid her final farewell to Sunrise, Allison Langdon reclaimed her seat at Today.

And now, Langdon has responded to the former presenter's comments about motherhood.

In February, Samantha Armytage wrote in her column for Stellar magazine that working mums are treated better in the workplace than single women.

“Bosses don’t ask as much of you if you’re a wife or mother," Sam wrote.

At the time, the comments drew a lot of attention for the wrong reasons, and now Alison Langdon has given her two cents on the claim.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Langdon said she does not agree with Armytage's perspective.

"From my personal point of view, I would disagree," the 41-year-old told the publication. "I think we all work as hard as each other, and we work as journalists."

Ally also spoke about her own experience as a mother-of-two in the workforce.

"As a working mum, when I had Mack (her first child) - and even when I had Scout (daughter) - I was working for 60 Minutes, and my kids came on all the shoots.

"I didn't say no to a story or got out of a story because I had kids... I felt differently to her, but I'm in a very different situation to her."

Allison recently returned to the Today show after suffering from a knee injury.

The incident occurred while she was filming a hydro foiling segment for the show at the start of February.
