Ronda Rousey is getting real about breastfeeding.
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion recently gave birth to her first child, a daughter, La’akea Makalapuaokalanipõ Browne. She recently took to Instagram and posted a photo of her breastfeeding her daughter in an effort to normalize feeding an infant in public.
“Our boys asked me the other day how I’m gunna feed Pō on the plane when we take her with us to Hawaii. And I was like “uhhh, same way I always do” Then it occurred to me that they probably never seen anyone breastfeed before and weren’t sure if it was appropriate in public,” Rousey wrote.
“Motherhood’s some badass, primal, beautiful shit that shouldn’t be hidden.
It still blows my mind that my body assembled this little person, pushed her out and now makes everything she needs to thrive. It’s really nothing to be ashamed of, it’s something to brag about”
The 34-year-old professional wrestler has nothing but supporters in her corner in the comments.
“Love this post!!!!” Trish Stratus said.
“You now own the greatest title of all … mother,” a fan wrote.
“Grown people eat in public, babies should be allowed to too. It’s that simple,” someone noted, with others adding, “Breastfeeding is the most natural thing to do. Some people just judge and nothing you can do. My partner breastfeeds too, screw the haters hahaha your baby comes first over their opinions lol,” and, “It is the most epic, most beautiful life changing experience ever!! You’re amazing!!”
