From US Magazine, here’s what Celine Dion had to say about breastfeeding her twins:
Five months after giving birth to twins Nelson and Eddy with hubby René Angelil, Celine Dion has reclaimed her svelte physique.
Her secret? Breastfeeding. “You get busy with twins and you feed them so they help you to recover very fast,” Dion, 42, told Canada’s Etalk. “So I helped them help me.” (Dion endured six rounds of IVF treatments before getting pregnant with the twins, born via C-section on Oct. 23. )
From Victoria’s Secret model to breastfeeding advocate… Miranda Kerr has shared a photo of her nursing her newborn, and it’s making the internet rounds. Her husband Orlando Bloom took the photo. Salon has a story today about the pic. From the Salon story:
How lovely then not just that Kerr posted a blissful photo that sweetly evokes those magical early bonding days with a baby, but that the picture has been nonchalantly picked up by major entertainment news outlets with barely a hint of squeamishness. Both People and OK! posted the photo, along with Kerr’s message from her blog that “I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it.”
I’m working on a story for a magazine right now about celebrities and breastfeeding… and I’d like to hear your opinions.
I’ve done many posts on this site about celebs who are breastfeeding. Remember Angelina Jolie’s breastfeeding photo on the cover of W Magazine? Or Julie Bowen talking about using the double football hold to breastfeed her twins? Or how about the pics of Maggie Gyllenhaal breastfeeding in public?
So what do you think of these stories? Why are so many celebrity moms talking about breastfeeding these days? Is this a new trend? And what sort of impact can this have on the general public? Is there a downside, if any, to all of this boob talk?
