Thandie Newton is a mother taking full advantage of her liberality. The actress recently shared a picture of herself breastfeeding her son, Booker, with Instagram fans and thousands celebrated her boldness.


“Perfect happiness,” Thandie shared along with the picture. “This is what my body is made for. And the rest is my choice. #Freedom.” Many applauded Thandie for nursing in public and sharing the moment with social media. “This is beyond beautiful,” one fellow mom wrote. “This is pure happiness and I love breastfeeding my baby,” she added. Dozens of others left hearts to symbolize their love for the act.

Thandie often goes against the tides by addressing issues that some celebrities refuse to discuss. The actress recently talked about sexual abuse in the industry. “I was so so naïve when I started out and I realize now that we have to prepare our kids,” she told W Magazine. “I’ve got two beautiful daughters, one is 16 one is 11. So many people in our business, they don’t want to be the ones to say something that’s a bum out because then they become associated with a bum out and nobody wants to read about so-and-so because they’re always blabbering on about a bum out.”

Thandie Newton is the proud mother of three children. Booker celebrated his second birthday in March.
