Salma Hayek Launches Breastfeeding Campaign By Breastfeeding A Baby In Need Of Milk(video)

Salma Valgarma Hayek Jiménez was Salma Hayek's birth mother. Her career started in Mexico, then in 1991 she relocated to Hollywood. The part that Hayek is most recognized for is that of Frida Kahlo in the 2002 motion picture "Frida." Her performance brought her nominations for Best Actress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Academy Awards, the BAFTA Film Awards, and the Golden Globes.

Hayek has appeared in a number of American movies prior to "Frida." "Desperado" (1995), "From Dusk till Dawn" (1996), and "Dogma" and "Wild Wild West" (1999) are a few of her other early hits. "The Hitman's Bodyguard," one of her most recent movies, was followed up with "Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard," which debuted in 2021. The main character in the movie is Hayek's Sonia Kincaid.

François-Henri Pinault, a French business billionaire, is Hayek's husband. On March 9, 2007, the actress declared her engagement and her pregnancy at the same time. Valentina Paloma Pinault, their daughter, was born in Los Angeles, California, on September 21, 2007, thanks to Hayek. On Valentine's Day in 2009, the pair tied the knot in Paris, France. In Venice, Italy, they reaffirmed their vows the same year.

Although the couple has always kept their relationship mostly quiet, they are parents to a stunning 15-year-old daughter called Valentina. A significant recollection of Hayek's weaning her daughter off breast milk was previously recounted. While accepting a UNICEF award, she recalled helping a young woman in Africa who was having trouble getting milk for her newborn child. It was during this recollection and story sharing that she shared it.

Hayek is renowned for being a highly vocal celebrity. She has undoubtedly become well-known in the entertainment industry, but her views on some subjects, like aging in Hollywood, have also provoked discussion.

Hayek loves her aging gracefully and shares her photos on Instagram frequently. The actress, who is in her 50s, likes publishing bikini pictures without shame, blending old and fresh images together. In an interview with ET, Hayek claimed that taking pictures in her swimsuit was "liberating".

Apart from her hair, the actress has gorgeous skin. Harper's Bazaar reports that she doesn't believe cosmetics is always required and doesn't use botox or fillers.

Hayek's gorgeous appearance undoubtedly makes many across the world envious, but the actress' daughter also appears to be a major fan of her mother's style and attractiveness. In 2022, the renowned actress disclosed the mother-daughter dynamic she had with her daughter Valentina.

"She takes everything from my closet, so we fight over clothes," Hayek remarked. "I've always liked that since she was a little child because she never let me choose her clothes." She is an expert makeup artist. I can do makeup well, but she's teaching me now."

In May 2017, Salma said HOLA!, "Personally, Valentina and I are not very similar." "On camera, though, she doesn't exhibit stage fright. Everyone in my family exudes confidence, elegance, and lightness. It's Valentina and me that become nervous on stage. However, she has no trouble posing for pictures!"

Valentina, Hayek's daughter, was born in the same month as her well-known mother. Valentina hardly appears on her mother's Instagram, as is the case with many well-known celebrities' kids; Hayek would much rather keep her minor child out of the spotlight, according to HELLO! Magazine.

The well-known actress took the stage at a significant UNICEF function years ago. The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, or UNICEF, is a nonprofit that works on children's humanitarian development. As Hayek stood on stage to accept her UNICEF award, she thought back on a narrative that she would always remember and that the world should hear.

The actress stated, "This 15-year-old girl is crying, shaking with a newborn baby and she said, 'Please help me, I need milk.'" Hayek recalled, "We had so many things, but we didn't have milk." "Apart from that, I recall that I had milk because I was weening my daughter," she continued. At that point, Hayek took an action that could only be described as heroic. "I have milk," she said. She commanded the young African mother, "Give me the baby, give me the baby."

The actress said, "I sat down and breastfed this baby." She continued by expressing how amazing the experience was for both her and the newborn child. She tried to mimic the little child's shocked and joyful facial expressions as she said, "I was mesmerized by the baby because that baby took the first hit of milk." "He was saying, 'Thank you,' while staring at me," Hayek said.

According to Hayek, a journalist ultimately snapped a photo of the private exchange, and news eventually made its way back to the publicist for Hayek. "Why do you act in this way? Are you deranged? Hayek recalled. "They could have milked that milking moment, but they were super elegant and they never said anything," Hayek said after chatting with the journalist who shot the photo.

She remarked, "Three years later, the picture's photographer—a brilliant journalist—was spearheading a campaign for breastfeeding in Africa." Then, according to Hayek, "the milk companies started sending." It's reasonable to claim that Hayek assisted a family in need by supplying milk to another infant. During an interview with "Nightline," Hayek said that she was unsure if feeding another baby was the correct decision.

"Am I being disloyal to my child by giving her milk away?" stated Hayek. "To be honest, I believe my child would be really proud to offer her milk. And I'm going to make sure she stays a kind, giving person as she grows up," the actress said.

"The flip side is a woman whose body is producing something naturally who is actually using it in such a powerful and positive way," said ABC writer Jennifer Perillo, who served as Working Mother magazine's food editor in 2009. Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz said, "I think it's completely crazy," in an interview with ABC. However, I say, "Go." "She made a point, and she made it loud and clear," the speaker said. Furthermore, it's sparked a discussion on the benefits of nursing, women's autonomy in the matter, and the need to overcome our fear of our bodies."
