Supermodel Gisele Bundchen took the opportunity, once again, to prove what an amazing mom she is by showing off a photo on Instagram of herself breastfeeding her daughter Vivian while getting glam for a photo shoot.
“What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only three hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready,” she wrote as the caption. For all of her admirers who don’t speak English, she was even kind enough to translate the caption into Portuguese.
Is she the ultimate multi-tasking mom, or just a completely obnoxious bragger? Based on her past remarks about parenthood I’m saying obnoxious bragger. And it’s unfortunate because she’s in the position to be a positive role model (C’mon, Gisele, ALL moms struggle with something…give up the holier than thou attitude!)
As one mom noted on Bundchen’s Instagram account, in response to the photo:
“While it is an ideal image, I had an incredibly hard time breastfeeding both of my children. What I would give for an experience like this picture… Not the extra help, just the baby easily nursing in the midst of everything. I hope you know how lucky you are @giseleofficial. Maybe sometime you can share your experiences if they were ever difficult to give hope to those who have had a more difficult time. Breastfeeding isn’t just a choice, it’s a process.”
In honor of her latest show-offy move, here are a few of her previous “gems” on motherhood:
Natural childbirth doesn’t hurt! “It wasn’t painful, not even a little bit,” the supermodel also the Brazilian TV show Fantastico of giving birth to her children Benjamin and Vivian in her bathtub at home. “The second day, I was walking, I was washing dishes, I was making pancakes in the kitchen.”
There should be a law that all moms have to breastfeed. “Some people here (in the U.S.) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK in 2010 after having her son, Benjamin. “I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.” Nevermind those moms who can’t breastfeed — if Gisele can do, everyone must!
Her two-year-old son was the best-ever eater! “When Benjamin eats broccoli, he thinks it’s dessert!” she told Vogue during an interview in 2011. (Just wait, next Halloween she’ll send out a press release declaring that her kids hate candy…)
A lot of women become “garbage disposals” when they’re pregnant, Bundchen told Vogue. She, on the the other hand, practiced kung fu until two weeks before her son’s birth and only gained 30 pounds. (Newsflash, Gisele, 30 pounds that, while pregnant with Benjamin, she did yoga and was practicing kung fu “up until two weeks” before giving birth.
