Tess Holliday shares breastfeeding photo: 'Working moms come in all shapes, sizes'

Model Tess Holliday is back at work after giving birth to her second child, and she recently shared an inspiring photo of her breastfeeding baby Bowie while on the job.

In the photo, shared on Instagram and captured by Holliday's partner, Nick Holliday, the model is getting her hair and makeup done before a photo shoot while clutching her newborn son to her chest.

"It reminded me of @Gisele's iconic photo breastfeeding on set," Holliday wrote, referencing a viral snapshot from 2013 of supermodel Gisele Bundchen breastfeeding while a "glam squad" did her hair, nails and makeup.

"Working moms come in all shapes, sizes, colors and creeds!" Holliday added.

The plus-size model and body-positive activist gave birth to her son, Bowie Juniper Holliday, last month. She also has a 10-year-old son from a previous relationship.

Throughout her pregnancy, she was open about the struggles she faced and criticism she received, often posting lengthy explanations of her feelings related to being plus-sized and pregnant.

Fans praised Holliday's recent post, calling it "beautiful" and thanking her for being a "role model" for moms who breastfeed.

Of course, not everyone has the luxury of sitting in a chair and getting primped while they breastfeed — while Bundchen's and Holliday's photos are indeed gorgeous, motherhood for many moms is usually a lot less glamorous.
