Ashley Graham slams 'mean girl' mom shamers who attacked explicit photos breastfeeding son Isaac
ASHLEY Graham has branded mommy shamers "mean girls", after she was criticized for sharing intimate pictures of her son breastfeeding.
"Mommy shamers are just mean girls who grew up to be mothers,” said Ashley during an interview on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk series.
Joined by Jada's daughter Willow, mom Adrienne, and Jessica Alba, the group discussed their experiences of online trolling over their decisions as moms.
Sin City star Jessica added: “I’ve had to do a lot of therapy.
"Certainly now that I’m almost 40, I’ve come to this place where I realize that most people who have something to say, it’s because they’re so insecure and it’s more of them being ashamed of themselves, being overly critical."
The mom of three – Honor, 12, Haven, 9, and Hayes, 2 – added: "For whatever reason, the natural reaction is to pull other people apart for them to feel justified or them to feel OK."
Body confident model Ashley, who gave birth to son Isaac in January, alo revealed she had been momshamed by family members.
“I’ve definitely been shamed by close family members,” she admitted
"They said, ‘I can’t believe he’s not sleep trained yet, what are you doing? Why are you ruining your life?'"
In mid-September she wrote over a sweet video of her feeding her son: "Reunited after four days!!!
"I pumped almost every 3 to 4 hours to keep my supply up while I was in Italy.
"I had so much breast milk in the freezer so I didn't have to worry if Isaac was going to have enough food while I was gone."
The model had been in Rome and revealed she had pumped milk and stored it in a freezer so that she could attend the fashion extravaganza and grace the catwalks in Italy.
The 32-year-old has been candid about motherhood, and previously shared a powerful photo of herself mid-labour experiencing her “greatest pain.”
The striking snap was shared with her 10.6million followers, and shows Ashley screaming during labour.
LA-based Ashley wrote: “This is the face of my greatest strength. The greatest pain I've ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I've ever achieved
