Brazilian bombshell, Gisele Bundchen has never been one to mince words or keep her opinions to herself.
Recently she posted a photo to her Instagram which sent the internet abuzz. The controversial photo shows her glam squad getting her ready while she breastfeeds 1 year old daughter, Vivian.
“What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready
I love this picture of Gisele breastfeeding. I think it’s amazing that:
1. She’s showing the world that it takes a team to get her ready and when she’s all dolled up, it’s at the hands of a manicurist, makeup artist, and hair stylist.
2. She’s working….Gisele is making money. She’s married to New England QB Tom Brady, but she’s still holding her own as the highest paid model on the planet. Go Girl!
3. She’s spending time with her child. It’s great seeing a mommy bond with her daughter.
4. She’s promoting breastfeeding. I remember a time when nursing a child was taboo. Here she is co-signing a beautiful bond that is so beneficial to mother and child.
What I took from her sharing this photo is that she appreciates her team and she loves spending time with her daughter.
In 2010, the 33 year old beauty sparked another breastfeeding controversy when she told Harper’s Bazar,
“Some people here think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think, ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child, when they are so little?’ There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
Breastfeeding is always a sensitive topic in America. As a mom who nursed 2 kids for over a year, I applaud Gisele for showing breastfeeding in such a beautiful light. All the negative backlash she’s getting, one would think she was drinking a 40 while nursing. Geez…she’s getting glammed up to go to work while feeding her child…GET OVER IT PEOPLE!!!
