Statue of Angelina Jolie Breastfeeding

Remember the photos of Angelina Jolie breastfeeding in W Magazine? Well a sculptor has taken this to a new level. He’s created a sculpture of Angelina breastfeeding her twins.
From ABC news:
Controversial celebrity sculptor Daniel Edwards has unveiled his latest work: a park-bench-sized statue of Angelina Jolie in the nude, double breastfeeding her twins. This artistic work of public indecency (she’s not wearing pants!) is called “Landmark for Breastfeeding” and was inspired by Jolie’s cover photograph on W magazine last year. Edwards decided that, in order to encourage more women to breastfeed and to raise global awareness of public nursing, he would depict one twin as African-American and the other as not, since that could totally happen in the real world. Beginning September 11, at Mainsite Contemporary Art Museum in Norman, Oklahoma, the piece will be on display, before it’s whisked off to an exhibition in London.

Here’s the latest from People Magazine:
Angelina Jolie might be a supermom, but there was one thing she struggled with – breast feeding her twins at the same time!
“It’s very hard,” the actress confessed on Britain’s morning show GMTV. “I stopped at three months, [it was] about as much as I could do.”
The actress, 33, who was in London promoting her film The Changeling with her partner Brad Pitt in tow and their four-month-old twins, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline, said she even resorted to manuals on the subject.
“There’s this football hold – it’s a lot harder than it looks in the books,” she says in the prerecorded interview at her London hotel on Monday. “I did that a few times. I would take turns. It just takes a long time.”…

Here’s the link to the story. You can see some of the photos here, but you’ll have to buy the magazine to see all of them. I’m heading to the newsstand tomorrow to see if I can track down a copy.
On a side note, the Reuters story that quotes me has been getting picked up all over the place. Quite funny to see it on the FOX News website.

I’ve written before about super mom Angelina Jolie breastfeeding her twins. Well now there’s word that W Magazine has a cover photo of her breastfeeding one of the twins. The November issue hasn’t hit the stands yet, so I haven’t seen the actual issue yet. From what I’ve heard, you can’t see too much of what’s going on. But reports say that she is in fact feeding one of the twins, and that daddy Brad Pitt took the pic. You can see it here. More to come!

Sort of old news…but definitely worth highlighting… Angelina Jolie told People Magazine in August that she was breastfeeding her newborn twins.
From The Celebrity Baby Blog:
In their 3-week-old fraternal twins’ debut in the latest issue of PEOPLE, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spoke about how breastfeeding both babies at the same time plays a part in managing the chaos. Angelina said, “They eat every three hours and I’m getting better at holding them both for [breast]feeding at the same time, so that helps. Usually, the other kids come in and hold them when they finish. They help with the baths and the changing.” Brad added, “We try to get them to eat simultaneously for the sake of management, but it gets a little crowded at the bar!”
