Pretty Little Liars’ Tammin Sursok Posts Breastfeeding Pic — It’s “Never Something to Be Ashamed Of”
Tammin Sursok (Jenna) is one classy mom. The Pretty Little Liarsactress recently posted a photo of herself breastfeeding 8-month-old Baby Phoenix, defending the beauty and naturality of the act that is often treated as shameful when done in the public eye. What did Tammin have to say about this particular pic?
“Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing. Never something to be ashamed of. Bonding in the way God intended,” Tammin captioned the photo. In the recent past, photos of breastfeeding mothers have been flagged as explicit content and removed from social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, prompting Internet backlash. Earlier this month, Facebook, perhaps the most visible of examples, quietly changed its guidelines to allow photos of breastfeeding mothers. We like that Tammin is taking part in a similarly subtle form of activism in posting this lovely photo.
Of course, Tammin is always posting photos of Baby Phoenix, and most of them don’t have this kind of subtext. They’re just full-on adorable. Like this one of Phoenix enjoying a sippie cup in a pink pinafore. Or this simple one of blue-eyed Phoenix looking angelic in white.
Or, in what may be our favorite yet, this photo of Tammin’s husband Sean McEwen carrying Phoenix around the Pretty Little Liars set. Love it!
