Sportsman defends model’s breastfeeding pic
Model’s breastfeeding pic sparks frenzy; boyfriend gets annoyed.
What’s the fuss about? She takes pictures for a living! That’s the gist of American Football player Phillip Weaver’s defence of his model girlfriend’s breastfeeding Instagram snap, according to The Stir. Girlfriend Ashley Nicole’s pic has riled up some who say it’s not appropriate for social media, but the football giant is not letting them get away with it…

Nature calls

Ashley’s caption to her Instagram update was: “Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called... Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful.”

It captures that pause which comes to most women who breastfeed; when life is put on hold for a brief moment of bonding and feeding.

She seems to have taken the impromptu lunch in her stride, managing to walk straight out of her shoes and get her son to latch without sitting down or taking off her sunglasses. Pretty glamorous, in fact!

Her stunning picture has since been widely shared by breastfeeding advocates, and it appears that the comments coming out are more in support of the young mom rather than in condemnation. Maybe people realised that her boyfriend is a force to be reckoned with…

What do you think? Too much skin and too private a moment, or a celebration of a special time in a young mom’s life?
