In December 2013, supermodel Gisele raised eyebrows (and perhaps other body parts) when an Instagram photo showed her nursing her son while surrounded by a glam squad.
Once again, a model has posted a breastfeeding pic on Instagram. The negative Nancys are out in force. Ashley Nicole, GF to Miami Dolphins linebacker Phillip Wheeler is under the microscope now.
I mean seriously, out of all the annoying Instagram photos of Starbucks cups, nail polish, endless bathroom mirror selfies, kittens, and food people are gonna complain about a mother nourishing her child?!
I don’t get it.
This woman rocks. She’s got great nursing form while supporting his head, looking cute, and even managing to thrust her hip out. And who wears a fashionable dress, makeup, and hair done just months after giving birth? Go Girl!!!
Wheeler supported his glowing lady and told TMZ, “I wish everybody would just leave it alone” … adding, “She’s a model. She takes pictures for a living.”
I applaud her. Endorsements for breastfeeding are great. The fact that she’s African American helps to raise nursing awareness in the black community where breastfeeding is not as popular. Studies show that only 54% of black women attempt to breastfeed newborns compared to 80.9% Asian, 80.4% Hispanic, and 74.3% white.
She captioned the photo, “Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called… Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful.” Ashley Nicole sounds like she’s on a great path with motherhood. Best wishes to her and her family.
