Fans are praising Rachel McAdams' breast pump magazine photoshoot that was recently shared online
There have been a few notably famous babies born this year. Kylie Jenner had Stormi after months of secrecy, Kate Middleton gave birth to another royal, Prince Louis, and Cardi B caused a bit of a stir when she named her newborn "Kulture". But while all that was going on, another celebrity had a baby - but she managed to keep hers a secret for more than half a year.
Rachel McAdams, who is perhaps best known for her role as Regina George in Mean Girls, gave birth to her first child - a baby boy - back in April. She and her partner, Jamie Linden, kept the news under wraps for a long time (despite being papped on several occasions with the little one), and the actress only officially announced that she had become a mother last month.
Then, just in case you missed the news, she went on to take part in this amazing photoshoot for Girls.Girls.Girls. magazine in which she has two breast pumps attached to her chest:
Sharing the photo on Instagram, photographer Claire Rothstein explained why she and McAdams decided to take the shot:
"A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture," she began.
"Obviously #rachelmcadams looks incredible and was quite literally the dream to work with but also this shoot was about 6 months post her giving birth to her son, so between shots she was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding.
"We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about who’s idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more."
"Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great."
Speaking to the Sunday Times earlier this year, McAdams said that having her son was "the greatest thing that has ever happened to me, hands down!"
She also said that she had been waiting to become a mother for a while, and that it was the right time to do so this year.
"Your life is not your own anymore. But I had 39 years of me, I was sick of me," she said. "I was so happy to put the focus on some other person. I waited a long time."
Meanwhile on Instagram, fans of the actress were keen to send over their congratulations, as well as their admiration for her flaunting her breast pumps in the shoot.
"Every mom who loves her baby enough to give them the most perfect food is a rockstar. And the fact that #rachelmcadams posed for this image makes me love her even more!!!!!" said one person.
"These are the kind of pictures and role models we need in Hollywood!" added another.
Needless to say, McAdams is still being totally fetch at 39, and we love her for it.
