Laura Whitmore has shared a rare photo of her with her baby daughter as she candidly discussed her experiences with breastfeeding.
Love Island host Laura, 36, opened up to fans in aid of breastfeeding awareness week, in the hope to raise awareness on the topic.
In the snap, shared on the TV star's Instagram page, mum Laura smiles as she breastfeeds her daughter while covering her face with a leopard blanket.
Laura is sat at a table, which appears to be in sunny Majorca where filming for Love Island is underway, with her personalised bottle from the TV show in the forefront.
As she shared the photo with her 1.5million followers, Laura explained her reasons behind the post in the caption.
She wrote: "I get a bit anxious talking about my child on this space as I feel so protective but I wanted to talk about breastfeeding.
"This isn’t knocking anyone who doesn’t but it’s #breastfeedingawarenessweek and I know so many new mums don’t get the support they need like the encouragement of feeding in the golden hour after birth and that it’s ok to feed in public without feeling you should hide away.
"Feeding your baby is your number one priority."
Laura, who recently shared a snap with her lookalike mum, then discussed her own experience with feeding her daughter, who's name she has kept out of the limelight.
The TV host also praised the support she's received throughout her journey, including while working on Love Island.
She explained: "I’ve exclusively breastfeed for over 4 months so far- it’s free and no washing up!
"I’ve also been supported, having my baby on set or being able to pump for the odd feed."
Laura then joked that she hoped the photo would offend anyone as she went on: "Anyway hoping a picture of me with my t*ts out doesn’t offend you and encourages women to feed if they need !
"I was just so shocked a lot of women don’t have enough support or embarrassed to feed in public.
"Breast milk is full of everything your baby needs and recommended by @who . It’s magic stuff!"
