Playing Plus-Size Model Tess Holliday Shares Breastfeeding Pic After Being Inspired by Gisele Bundchen

Tess Holliday is taking a cue from another model mom.

The 31-year-old plus-size model gave birth to her second child in June and is already back at work. On Wednesday, Holliday shared a photo taken by her husband, Nick Holliday, of her breastfeeding their newborn son, Bowie, while in the makeup chair.

"@nickhollidayco captured this photo of me getting ready yesterday to shoot the next installment of my #mblmxtess @penningtons collection, and it reminded me of @gisele's iconic photo breastfeeding on set," she wrote. "Working moms come in all shapes, sizes, colors & creeds! #normalizebreastfeeding #workingmom #whorunstheworld."

In December 2013, Bundchen posted a similar pic of her breastfeeding daughter Vivian, who was just one at the time. "What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #gettingready," she captioned the photo.

Holliday and Bundchen aren't the first famous mothers to share breastfeeding pics on social media. In fact, Alyssa Milano has spoken out in defense of such images after receiving a bit of backlash for her own breastfeeding posts. "I think people are more comfortable sexualizing breasts than relating them to what they were made for, which is feeding another human," the mother of two told ET.
