Kate Upton praised for sharing a relatable breastfeeding pump pic

Celebrities often share pictures of themselves looking extremely glamorous while they are breastfeeding or pumping (i.e. Giselle Bundchen and Rachel McAdams), but not model Kate Upton.

The 26-year-old beauty has been praised by mums for her ‘relatable’ and ‘normal’ pumping portrayal.

On Valentine’s Day, Kate uploaded a snap of herself getting ready for a date with her husband, Justin Verlander, which included her pumping her milk for her daughter Genevieve, three months.

“Valentine’s Day dinner pregame #JustKeepPumpin,” the Sports Illustrated stunner captioned the pic.

It seems Kate’s pic really resonated with mums, with many commenting on how “normal” and “relatable” it was.

“This is awesome. And relatable,” one social media commented.

“Amazing photo!! It’s so great you make breastfeeding normalisation,” said a fan.

“Mom stuff (sic). Everyday. Love it. Thanks for sharing,” another wrote.

One follower added: “Yes girl!!! I feel like I am constantly pumping.”

Justin announced the arrival of Genevieve back in November last year, sharing a pic of the newborn holding mum and dad’s fingers.

In January, Kate told Extra that she’s not planning on giving her daughter a sibling any time soon.

“I can’t even think about having more kids now,” she admitted. “I hear that you forget all of the pain about everything [birth].

“I’m like, I am just sleeping through the night now.”

Enjoy it while you can, Kate!
