A magazine cover photo of, Angelina Jolie, breast-feeding one of her newborn twins may have turned the superstar actress into a role model for new mothers.
The photo was taken by her partner Brad Pitt, and will adorn the November issue of W magazine. Other family pictures taken by Pitt in the weeks after the birth in July of twins Vivienne Marcheline and Leon Knox will appear inside.
Seeing a celebrity like, Angelina Jolie, breast-feed can be a role model to encourage women to make a choice that is wonderful for their baby,” said Andi Silverman, mom of two and author of “Mama Knows Breast.”
About 70 percent of American mothers breast-feed their newborns but the rate falls dramatically after six months, according to official figures.
Personally, I think Angelina is BEAUTIFUL, and this picture is a piece of art. Why is it that people always see the negative? I don’t find it offensive at all. Go Angie, go Angie! Let the haters keep talking!
