Little things — or rather "big" in this case — like breast implants won't stop Kourtney Kardashian from breastfeeding after she gives birth in December. "I actually went to my doctor today and asked him about it, and he said you usually can," the reality starlet told TVGuide.com. "You just need to try it because you won't know until you try."
Kardashian's disclosure reminded us of how often celeb-parents overshare about breastfeeding. It's a natural, beautiful, healthy thing and all, but sometimes: TMI. Here are our top 8 favorite celebrity breastfeeding stories:
8. Kendra Wilkinson's Leaky Boob
Like fellow expectant E! mom Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson wants to breastfeed despite implants. Unlike Kardashian, she didn't ask her doctor first and found herself seeped in what she thought was breast milk. "I was so scared that I wasn't going to be able to nurse that when I saw stuff come out of my nipples the other day, I was like, 'I can breastfeed?'" she told Us Weekly. "And I asked my doctor, who said, 'That's fine, but it's not milk yet!'" It's actually called colostrum (premilk). Time to buy some nursing pads.
7. Angelina Jolie Breastfeeds on W
W magazine's November 2008 issue celebrated art — namely Brad Pitt's art. His slightly grainy black-and-white shot of Jolie feeding one of their twins graced the cover of W. At first glance, you don't notice the side-boob and the baby's tiny fingers, but there they are. Subtle, Brad. It's a serene, natural and relaxed shot that reaffirms what we already knew: Angie looks good doing anything. Thanks, guys.
6. Naomi Watts' Lactose Lobotomy
Despite new-mom fatigue and low memory, Watts was still able to do math and coin a new breastfeeding term. "I'm busy milking all day long," she told David Letterman. "I feel like I have probably lost a good 75 percent of my brain power. ... I say it halved itself and it halved itself again. It's not just the sleep deprivation, it is the breastfeeding and I call it the 'lactose lobotomy.'" Watch Watt's interview.
Breastfeeding is always a hot topic for the View ladies (and we will expect nothing less when Hasselbeck returns from maternity leave in October). After Hasselbeck gave birth to her second child, she and co-panelist Shepherd rather enthusiastically demonstrated the effects of a breast pump. "It sucks your nipples out to there!" Shepherd explained, pointing. Sensing we needed a tangible visual, Hasselbeck put rolled up index cards on her breasts, only to have Shepherd feign pumping into coffee mugs... which Hasselbeck delivered to an audience member. And if that's not enough for you, she also told us she doesn't like when her boobs touch. Good to know. Watch the demo now.1. Got Salma Hayek's Breast Milk?Sharing is caring, and that's what Hayek wants to teach her daughter, Valentina. The voluptuous actress nursed a malnourished baby boy — who shares a birthday with her daughter — during a humanitarian mission to Sierra Leone. "I actually think that my baby would be very proud to be able to share her milk," she said. "When she grows up, I'm going to make sure that she continues to be a generous, caring person, and I think that's the best thing I can give her as a mother." In a related story, thousands of men are starving. Watch Hayek breastfeed the baby here.
