Sports Illustrated model Mara Martin caused quite the stir on social media after she was photographed walking the catwalk while breastfeeding her baby.
However, she had a strong message to those who shaded her, and any other woman, for breastfeeding in public.
Taking to her Instagram account, Martin explained how she was shocked to see she made headlines for breastfeeding her baby girl.
"I can’t believe I am waking up to headlines with me and my daughter in them for doing something I do every day. It is truly so humbling and unreal to say the least. I’m so grateful to be able to share this message and hopefully normalize breastfeeding and also show others that women CAN DO IT ALL!" she wrote on Instagram.
However, Martin added she was shocked to find she and her daughter made headlines at all. According to the beautiful model, breastfeeding in public was not something that should have been newsworthy.
In fact, she went on to list several other stories that happened over the weekend that were much more important than her feeding her baby on the runway.
