10+ Celebrity Mothers Who Aren't Afraid To Breastfeed In Public

For too long, breastfeeding in public has been stigmatized by the public and even considered to be taboo. Thankfully, due in large part to some of our favorite celebrities — that time has come to an end.

Below are 10+ celebrity mothers who aren't afraid to breastfeed in public. Let's all lead by their example and celebrate all of the hardworking breastfeeding moms out there!

Gisele Bundchen

According to Gisele's Instagram caption, this was "One of the most special moments I've shared with my kids while breastfeeding," she said. "That special look you get, that feeling of connection is unlike anything I have ever experienced."

Karolina Kurkova

Karolina wants to celebrate all the women who are breastfeeding. She understands that it isn't always easy and that it can also be incredibly hard on a woman's body.

She said it was never her intention to create a campaign around breastfeeding, but that she's happy to play her part.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria is proof that mothers really are superhuman. This is a photo of her directing an episode of Grand Hotel while breastfeeding her son, Santi.

The former star of Desperate Housewives commended her crew for being so supportive of her career/motherhood goals.

Tia Mowry

Tia Mowry wants all the mothers out there to know that while breastfeeding can create an incredible bonding moment between mother and child, it isn't the only way to nourish a baby.

What's most important is that your child is fed and loved, according to the former Sister, Sister star.

Candice Swanepoel

Here's something you probably didn't know — Breastfeeding can burn up to 600 calories daily, according to Candice's Instagram post.

"So you need to eat & stay well hydrated to maximize production," she explains. "From breastfeeding alone you may lose a pound of pregnancy weight every week."

Kate Upton

Kate has some great advice for new mothers. She captioned her photo by saying "In my opinion, enjoy the moments with your new baby and growing family, allow your body time to heal and make sure to go at your own pace."

Iskra Lawrence

Iskra says that it took more than nine months of breastfeeding before she was finally able to find even a modicum of solace amid the chaos.

She says that the expectations put on new mothers are outrageous and that women need to allow their bodies the proper time to heal.

Ashley Graham

Ashley is happy to breastfeed, but make no mistake: she plans on weening her children as soon as the opportunity presents itself. As she explained to The Wall Street Journal, “I’m just like, I am not your pacifier, I am a boss, I am a businesswoman. I have [expletive] to do.”

Liv Tyler

Liv explained in an interview with People magazine that the above photo was originally intended to be given to her partner, David.

She was hesitant to post it until she came to the realization that breastfeeding was perfectly natural and beautiful.

Troian Bellisario

When speaking about breastfeeding her child, Troian admitted that "I would never have thought something so simple would be so complicated."

While she considers it an honor to have been able to breastfeed her daughter, by no means was the journey always a glorious one.

Tess Holliday

This photo was taken while Tess breastfed backstage during a Torrid Model event. This loving photo of mother and child gives all new meaning to the phrase "take your kid to work."

Mothers really are the ultimate multi-taskers, bar none.

Olivia Wilde

Olvia jokingly captioned the photo of her and her newborn, "my drinking buddy."

Sure, it may not be as exciting as the bar scene, at least on the surface — but this way you'll never have to worry about being hungover the next day.

Jenna Dewan

When it came to nursing her second child, everything was different for Jenna Dewan. The former star of Step Up said via Instagram that she had issues with latching, milk production, as well as knowing when to pump.

Milla Jovovich

Milla says that she always looks forward to nursing. She says that she's "So grateful for these quiet moments with my rainbow baby. Nursing her are some of my favorite times of the day."

The Resident Evil star says that she'll hold these memories in her heart forever.

Emily Ratajkowski

Emily joked that the reason why it seems as if she's always breastfeeding her newborn baby, Sylvester — it's because she's always breastfeeding her newborn baby, Sylvester.

There's no point in hiding from the truth, according to Emily.

Gwen Stefani

If you're looking for a scenic spot to breastfeed, there's hardly a more beautiful place than Switzerland.

Gwen snapped this candid shot while she was touring through Europe. She's living proof that moms never slow down, not even for a second.

Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano looks positively Charmed to be nursing while having her makeup applied.

As this picture clearly illustrates — a hungry baby waits for no one. A fact Alyssa likely understands all too well by this point in time.

Padma Lakshmi

Take a look at what's missing from this photo: no nanny, no assistant, and no makeup team — Padma can do it all.

Her multi-tasking skills are so precise and refined that she can apply her own makeup whilst simultaneously breastfeeding her baby.

Alanis Morissette

Alanis breastfed her firstborn son, Ever, for over a year. She's an advocate of the "attachment-parenting method" and believes that a child should be the one who determines when they themselves are ready to stop breastfeeding.


When P!nk set out on her "Truth About Love" tour, her baby Willow was 14 months old. The pop star told Redbook Magazine that she would often breastfeed backstage: "That was our bonding time," she said. "And some of my favorite moments."

Jaime King

Jaime says that she lives for the moments when she gets to breastfeed her child. The model/actress states that breastfeeding shouldn't be considered taboo, nor should parents be shaming those women who choose to bottle-feed their babies. It's all love.

Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff explained on the Informed Pregnancy Podcast just how difficult breastfeeding can be. She said that it's "Just still painful and it's hard, and it's even harder having the other two that I know need me so much, and this takes up such a huge portion of the day."

Chrissy Teigen

No, Chrissy isn't nursing two newborn babies at once. The 'baby' in Chrissy's right hand is actually a doll that belongs to her daughter, Luna.

The young girl saw her mother nursing baby Miles and decided her doll was hungry as well.
