I’ll handle this business 😉💪🏾 Mama @laurenhashianofficial has her hands full nursing/feeding Baby Tia, so I’m feedin’ mama her dinner. My pleasure. So much respect to her and all mamas out there holding it down and running things. Just landed and good to get all my girl’s settled in. Now, I gotta go satisfy my own appetite.. Iron Paradise, here I come. #EveryoneGetsFed #DaddysGottaGoToWork #ChivalryIsToughOnTheKnees
Today, more and more dads are challenging stereotypes and embracing an equal, hands-on approach to parenting. This much-needed mindset is culminating in a range of new parenting norms, including father-daughter ballet lessons, princess-inspired photoshoots, and, recently, a social media trend that sees celebrity dads voicing their support for breastfeeding.
Using Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook as their platforms, these famous fathers are sharing photos of their partners as they nurse their babies. Along with these images, the men detail their admiration for mothers, praising their dedication to their children and noting “how incredible the female body is.”
Ranging from sentimental to silly, these posts are a perfect way to celebrate these women and (as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson puts it) “all mamas out there holding it down and running things.” Hopefully, this trend inspires other dads—celebrity or not—to normalize this natural act and, consequently, eradicate the self-consciousness and social stigmas that often accompany it.
In a number of inspiring social media posts, celebrity dads are showing their support for their breastfeeding partners.
Just took a little pit stop on the drive home. I love watching Emily feed our son. They share such a deep bond and I can see how much joy it brings her when everything stops and it just the two of them connecting. Now I’m not saying it’s always joyful but a lot of the time it really is for her. It still blows my mind at how incredible the female body is and that the only thing my son has eaten since he was born has been produced by my wife. God is incredible. #naturesmiracle #breastfeeding @weareamma #dearmaxwell #normalizebreastfeeding
Even when she’s exhausted. When she thinks she’s failing at motherhood. When she doesn’t think she’s beautiful or sexy. When she doesn’t have anything left for herself at the end of the day let alone her family. No matter what she thinks about herself in that moment. I think she is everything. I love you @emilybaldoni. That’s all.
God help anyone that tries to shame @aijiaofficial breastfeeding in public 👊 Visiting me on tour and it’s good to have her sass around. Shout out to all the moms feeding their babies without a care and in style 💅 pic.twitter.com/a9oLN2RqA1
