A Canadian mother has turned into an Internet superstar after the photograph of she breastfeeding her nine-month-old child amid her own wedding circulated around the web. 30-year-old Christina Torino-Benton, said her girl Gemma began crying amid the function after a hot, distressing morning without a snooze.
According to a BBC report, the Montreal native said that she quickly took her daughter and began breastfeeding her as the priest continued to talk – a moment the bride’s photographer Lana Nimmons was able to capture on camera. She said, “It didn’t cross my mind not to nurse her while it was happening. It was the only thing to do, really.” Torino-Benton then shared the moment with her daughter on a breastfeeding group’s Facebook page, where the photo has generated more than 7.9k likes. The photo was captioned :-
All about feeding anytime & anywhere. That moment when you’re getting married and your baby gets hungry feeling SO proud of myself! Fighting that good fight!
The image prompted dozens of mums to share their own photos of breastfeeding in bridal gowns, and a line of pictures went down the Facebook page among the stream of comments. The bride said she welcomed the outpouring of support, but was surprised by some of the “hurtful” comments left in response to the photo.
This was right after the ceremony they had to wait on us to sign our license. Such Lovely Pictures <3
