Nicole Trufino is standing up for mothers across the world!
The stunning supermodel is glowing in the June issue of Elle Australia, where she's seen breastfeeding her baby boy, Zion, on the mag's controversial cover.
"This wasn't a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set," editor-in-chief Justine Cullen says of the pic. "It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture."
The 29-year-old beauty took to Instagram to share the cover shot, revealing that she hopes the photo will "normalize" breastfeeding.
"There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than motherhood," she writes. "The last thing I want to do is be controversial, so please take this for what it is, let us #normalizebreastfeeding there is nothing worse than a mother that is judged for feeding her hungry child in public."
"#weareonlyhuman I'm so proud of this cover and for what it's stands for," she adds. "I obviously don't look like this while I am breastfeeding but this stands for all women out there, whether you breastfeed or not, we gave birth, we are women, we are mothers. Thank you to ELLE for being so bold and making such an encouraging, positive and healthy statement. #womenunit."
Zion is Trunfio's first child with her fiance, Gary Clark Jr.
"When I saw the cover of me breastfeeding, which was unplanned and just natural, I teared up and thought, 'Wow this is such a special moment where my worlds have collided'," the new mom tells the mag.
