Celebrity moms are just like us, they say. When we see Beyoncé performing pregnant in front of thousands of people, or basically any photo of Gwyneth, that cliché is hard to believe. But when it comes to feeding their babies, starlet moms might actually be more relatable than we thought. So, in honor of World Breastfeeding Week, here is a compilation of memorable breastfeeding moments in Hollywood.
Stefani was still breastfeeding son, Kingston, when she went on tour in 2007. She told The Guardian, "I don't know when I'm going to stop breastfeeding... I'll just keep going while I can -- like, he's getting his teeth so it is a little bit scary. He's bitten me a few times!"
In 2014, she posted a beautiful Instagram photo of herself feeding her son Apollo in Switzerland.
Natalia Vodianova, a Russian model notable for her work with Calvin Klein, debuted her son Maxim to the world with a stunning breastfeeding photo.
Jaime King posted a photo of herself nursing her son James on Instagram, along with this caption: "#JamesKnight is now 8 months old! These are the moments a mother lives for. Breastfeeding should not be taboo- and bottle feeding should not be judged- it's ALL fun for the whole family:)"
In an interview with Allure, Penelope Cruz spoke openly about nursing her children. "I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive. It's hard when the day comes when you have to stop."
She also pointed out one of the perks of breastfeeding. "I'm supposed to get extra calories because breastfeeding you burn, like, an extra 500 a day."
During an album photo shoot in 2012, Pink shared a photo of herself nursing baby Willow Sage on Instagram and Twitter. The next year, her husband Carey Hart posted an Instagram photo of his wife breastfeeding their daughter at a restaurant in Paris.
And according to Baby Center, in a tweet about the famous TIME article on attachment parenting, the singer wrote, “It’s time we support what’s healthy (breastfeeding) instead of judge it.”
The singer expressed her pro-attachement parenting beliefs in 2012 and said, "I breastfeed and I'll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans," on "The Billy Bush Show."
In 2012, Hilary Duff confirmed in an interview with Us Weekly that she chose to nurse her son Luca. "I'm breastfeeding now so that's a really wonderful experience -- challenging but wonderful,"
In an interview with People Magazine, actress Selma Blair spoke openly about breastfeeding her son Arthur in public. "We all have nipples," she said. "I don’t care who I offend; my baby wants to eat. If I can’t get a cover over me quick enough, so be it."
Beyonce was spotted breastfeeding Blue Ivy in New York City while dining out with husband, Jay-Z in 2012.
Milano told Best for Babes that she has had no trouble breastfeeding her son, Milo. "I was lucky to have a baby who from the moment he came into the world, was a pro at latching on," she said.
In November 2011, Spelling's husband, Dean McDermott tweeted a photo of his son, Liam, who was 4 at the time, which showed Spelling's breasts in the background.
"I am a mom, I was nursing my baby... [Dean] was so devasted about it that I couldn't be mad. I mean it was genuinely an accident," Spelling told CNN about the incident.
Actress Mayim Bialik blogged on kveller.com in September 2011 about starting to wean her 3-year-old son Fred. The post included a highly publicized photo of Bialik breastfeeding Fred on the New York City subway.
In her book, "Beyond The Sling," she wrote that he still nursed about five times a day at that age, and later told CNN "it is still a tremendous source of discipline, and of bonding, that occurs between a mother and a child."
Kourtney K. quit breastfeeding son, Mason, when he was 14 months old. "I think I stopped early because my sisters were like 'OK, it's time, it's time,'" she said on the "Today" show. "I miss it, I loved it."
Wilkinson once told Baby Zone an outrageous story about the first party she went to after giving birth to baby Hank:
"I went to Eve nightclub in Vegas and my boobs started leaking. I couldn't do anything so I breastfed myself [laughs]. And it tasted sweet, too!"
In the the April 2007 issue Garner told Allure Magazine: "All I ever heard was everyone bitch about [nursing] -- nobody ever said, 'You are not going to believe how emotional this is.' It's like, I'll say I'm going to stop, and then I'm in there, feeding her."
When Gwyneth Paltrow was nursing her second child in 2006, she told Harper's Bazaar, "I stay healthy by working out but not dieting, because I am a milk machine."
Back in 2010, "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen showed "Lopez Tonight" viewers a photo of the way she nursed her twin boys -- breastfeeding both babies at the same time.
"It's like two little liposuction machines on you," she said. "They suck the fat out of you. They call it the 'double football hold.' You hold one here, and here [gesturing to her breasts], like two footballs ... They're doing God's work right there, helping me return to my birth weight."
In 2004, when Mary-Louise Parker won a Golden Globe for "Angels in America" she said, "Janel Moloney just told me she would pay me $1,000 if I thanked my newborn son for making my boobs look so good in this dress."
