Model mom Gisele Bunchen has caused a frenzy after posting photos of herself breastfeeding while being primped and preened by her “glam squad”.
The Brazilian stunner, who is launching her own line of lingerie, shows how she juggles her busy career while being a mother. Lots of help!
Bundchen posted an Instagram photo that shows her daughter Vivian breastfeeding as she relaxes while being tended to by her beauty team.
Gisele tweeted, “What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep?”
She tagged her tweet “multitasking”, but made it obvious she wasn’t doing the hard work.
The supermodel is pictured in her robe as her manicurist tends to her nails, her makeup artist applies her mascara, and a stylist curls her hair.
Her daughter Vivian, who turned one this month, is shown contentedly feeding away and oblivious to all the action around her.
Gisele Bundchen is currently starring in the campaign for her own lingerie line, which is being launched in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Her line is called Gisele Intimates and of course she is the face for her own brand!
The 33-year-old model and mother-of-two recently posted photos of herself doing yoga with her daughter Vivian. She captioned the photo, “Thank you auntie Fafi for capturing this special moment.”
Gisele caused quite an uproar from moms all over the world, with some praising her for promoting breastfeeding.
Comments on her Twitter and Instagram pages include praise for her being “a great example of working girl and mother” and a “thank you for normalizing breastfeeding.”
Amber Kaiser commented, “The issue here is that motherhood is a thankless job. We don’t get the recognition, praise or kudos we deserve for being super in our everyday lives. Perhaps for her, this is multitasking, and in her world it may be difficult to do so. It’s all relative. She’s taking care of her child and as mothers no one can fault her for that”.
Kelley Green-Chartier wrote, “She is being a Mother to her child and doing her job at the same time….period! I commend her”.
But Denise Albert of TheMoms.com told Good Morning America on Wednesday, said breastfeeding is “a very personal choice” and called Bundchen’s post obnoxious” and “a little outrageous.”
Other mothers weighed in, with Erika Douglass writing, “Today, I nursed my 8-month-old while pushing a shopping cart… I was grocery shopping and later, did it again while I finished Christmas shopping for the family! Oh, I was also drinking an iced coffee at the same time lol”
Alison Hughey Clifford tweeted, “This is so hilarious! Real multitasking is breast-feeding while breaking up a fight between the older two and pouring cereal at the same time. Then change a diaper while pulling an old fruit snack out of your bra. To each their own”.
Jessica Sobolewski adds, “Even the baby is working harder in this picture than her!!!! Love you Giselle, but this is not multitasking, babe”.
Gisle Bundchen has been outspoken about breastfeeding in the past. In August 2010, she caused a stir after the birth of her first child, son Benjamin, when she told Harper’s Bazaar UK that “breastfeeding really helped” her get her figure back. “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.”
She later apologized, saying, “I’m not here to judge. … I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.”
