She gave birth to her first child two-and-a-half months ago - and now Victoria's Secret superstar Candice Swanepoel has shared an inspiring message with her fellow mums. 

 

Taking to Instagram and also sharing a gorgeous black and white snap of her feeding her baby son Anaca, the 28-year-old catwalk queen stated: "Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children."

 

 

She continued: "I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I've done in the name of art.

 

"The world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to violence on TV... why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding?

 

 

"Breastfeeding is not sexual it's natural - those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child and.... on society as a whole."

 

South African beauty Ms Swanepoel has been with her partner, Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli, for more than a decade. The pair become engaged in August of last year and welcomed their son on October 5.
