Salma Hayek Breastfeeds African Baby

Superdad shared this with me today. It made me tear up. I have always liked Salma Hayek! Now I LOVE her!!!! She is awesome!!!

Salma Hayek let "Nightline" and Cynthia McFadden follow her on a goodwill trip to Sierra Leone a few months ago, and while there she breastfeed a newborn baby boy whose mother had no milk.

Hayek's own daughter Valentina turned one just before she took the trip.

She spoke of the incident recently, and it turns out "Nightline" aired video of the feeding.

"The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother didn't have milk. He was very hungry. I was weaning Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk that I was pumping, so I breast-fed the baby. You should have seen his eyes. When he felt the nourishment, he immediately stopped crying."

Below is the link to watch the video and hear this amazing story!

Ugh, heartbreakingly touching. She is so awesome and what an unselfish thing to do! Not everyone would breast feed someone else's baby!

I'm a huge fan of hers for many reasons, not only of her explosive love for kids and huge spokesperson for breastfeeding, but she is all woman!!!
