Actress and new mom Rachel McAdams is making headlines for a recent photo shoot where she’s seen using her breast pump. The photographer behind the shot (for Girls. Girls. Girls.) says that the photo wasn’t really planned. Rachel was in between shots and had to stop and pump. That’s when they decided to just take the shots! The founder and editor of the publication, Claire Rothstein, explains the shoot in her description below. Rachel gave birth to her first child, a son, earlier this year.

A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture. 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. Besides she’s wearing Versace and @bulgariofficial diamonds and is just fucking major. Big shout out to all the girls ?? #rachelmcadams for @girls.girls.girls.magazine cover shoot ? @clairerothstein #pleaseshare Side note: I did not look anywhere near as fabulous as this when feeding/pumping. And that’s ok too.
