Big, Tough Football Player Defends Photo of Girlfriend Breastfeeding

ashley nicole breastfeedingYet another photo of a breastfeeding mama has gotten the Internets all riled up. This time it's the girlfriend of Miami Dolphins player Philip Weaver. Ashley Nicole posted a photo of herself breastfeeding their son, and captioned it: "Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called... Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful." In her case, YES, nature is beautiful! So why are people giving Weaver such a hard time?


The linebacker told TMZ, "I wish everybody would just leave it alone ... She's a model. She takes pictures for a living." It's sweet of him to defend his girlfriend's photo like this. He wants to know why Ashley is getting heat, when Gisele was praised for the breastfeeding photo she posted. But from what I saw, Gisele got a lot of flack for her photo, too! So Ashley shouldn't feel alone in the backlash.

I hope she and Weaver are getting some love, too. I know there are breastfeeding moms out there who cheered when this photo went viral. I love how it shows Ashley in motion -- which is how it is with a lot of moms. You're on your way, about to do something, when your child's needs arise. So you're back on duty. Plus, that's a cool endorsement of on-demand feeding. She's still wearing her shades!

In fact, this is probably the hippest breastfeeding photo I've ever seen. If anything, this should inspire moms -- and dads! -- everywhere. Good for all three of them.

Do you think Ashley Nicole's photo is beautiful and inspiring, or TMI?
