Ashley Graham Shares Video Breastfeeding Her Son
Ashley Graham has recently shared an inside glimpse into her life as a mother.
On Monday, the 33-year-old model shared videos on her Instagram with her 1-year-old son Isaac. The video shows Graham breastfeeding her son in bed as he taps his little feet against her leg.
“Perfect morning with my sweet lil man,” captioned Graham. “The snow in NYC is wild today bit still going to throw Isaac into his snow suit for a quick sled sheesh!”
Fans and celebrities fled to the comments to show support for Graham’s transparency.
“I miss this so much,” wrote actress Alyssa Milano.
“Ugh my ovaries are vibrating, baby fever!! the cuteness abounds!!,” one fan commented.
“Thank you so much for using your platform and normalize breastfeeding!,” wrote another.
As many commenters liked Graham’s post, there were also many who did not and this was not the first time they did. Graham has been open about breastfeeding before and has shared other photos in the past.
Graham spoke about her openness and being “mom-shamed” in an October episode of Red Table Talk.
“I thought, oh my gosh, what am I gonna do? I have to breastfeed. Well, I’m just going to whip out my boob and feed him. So then I thought, Justin, to my husband, take a picture! This is my first time breastfeeding him in public, this is something I always wanna remember. I agonized over what I was gonna say and then I finally just wrote something like two emojis, like milk and a cookie. Sure enough, I got mom-shamed,” Graham revealed.
“My whole career is based off being sexy and my breasts have been the forefront of many magazine covers, so then to flip my baby there sucking on them, I think that people just had to switch their minds,” she continued. “But they are multi-purposeful. I think there’s so many new mommies out there who are agonizing over what they should and shouldn’t be doing.”
