Gisele Bundchen: Women Should Be Forced to Breast-Feed
When a supermodel speaketh, thou shalt listen.
Now that Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen has been a mom to baby Benjamin for all of seven months, she has decreed, "There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months," the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports. Upon the beginning of the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action's World Breastfeeding Week, her timing is just perfect.
And, posing for a photo shoot merely six weeks after giving birth, the 5 foot, 11 inch, 30-year-old Bundchen tells U.K.'s Harper's Bazaar, "I think breastfeeding really helped (me keep me figure)."
Perhaps, but we're pretty sure diet, exercise and -- sigh -- genetics played major roles, too. Still, we respect that she physically and mentally trained to prepare for childbirth.Bundchen says she did kung fu for two weeks before giving birth, practiced yoga three times a week and meditated every day, the Daily Mail reports.
"It's called 'labour,' not 'holiday,' for a reason, and I knew that," she says.
