Salma Hayak is a UNICEF spokeswoman and as part of her work she was visiting war-torn Sierra Leone this week. The 42-year-old, who has a one-year-old daughter Valentina, was touring
a hospital when she came across a mother who was unable to feed her
said: ‘The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother did not have any
milk. He was very hungry – I was weaning my daughter Valentina, but I
still had a lot of milk, so I breast-fed the baby.’ She added:
‘It was amazing because he’s really looking at me and he’s very little.
My baby is one year so she can suck a lot harder.’
…..and no, I don’t think it was a publicity stunt or a bid for attention. I think it was a very brave and compassionate and instinctive thing Salma Hayek did and I would like to believe I’d do the same if I was in her position.
Jeez, everything is making me tear up today. Clip after the jump….
