Photo of Nicole Trunfio breastfeeding takes cover of Elle


Australian model Nicole Trunfio is creating a lot buzz for her cover photo on Elle Australia. The photo shows the 29-year-old mom breastfeeding her son.

Trunfio apparently had no idea the magazine would choose the motherly moment as their June 2015 cover photo. She took to social media Thursday to share her thoughts on the decision:

There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than motherhood. 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 what it's stands for. I obviously don't look like this or wear 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. ?#womenunite

Trunfio and fiancé Gary Clark Jr. welcomed their first child, Zion Rain, to the world in January.
