Salma recently confided during a USATODAY interview that during her trip to Africa she felt a deep maternal need to intervene in the case of one child whose mother was unable to breastfeed.
“The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother didn’t have milk. He was very hungry. I was weaning Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk that I was pumping, so I breast-fed the baby,” she says, her voice dropping.
“You should have seen his eyes. When he felt the nourishment, he immediately stopped crying.”
Well, she definitely has all the necessary equipment.
This is decidely noble of her and I applaud Salma for her, uh….generosity, but the whole situation is somewhat awkward. I just imagine the whole thing with the interviewer going something like that scene in Meet the Parents where Ben Stiller’s character claims to have milked his cat.
