‘You wussed out!’ Sonia Kruger tells magazine editor she is ‘sending the wrong message’ by not putting Nicole Trunfio’s breastfeeding cover on newsstand issue.

The world has been talking about Nicole Trunfio’s ground-breaking ELLE magazine cover, which shows the model breastfeeding her four-month-old son Zion. Reactions have been inevitably mixed, while many have said that the magazine detracted from a potentially powerful message by shying away from putting it on newsstands.

Supermodel stuns on the cover of ‘s June issue, but along with sharing her ridiculously good looks, she took things a step further by taking what some deem a very controversial image and showed that it is nothing but a sight of beauty and love by posing for the mag’s first-ever breastfeeding cover. “This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set,” editor-in-chief Justine Cullen said. “It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.” “There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than motherhood. I obviously don’t look like this while I am breastfeeding but this stands for all women out there, whether you breastfeed or not, we gave birth, we are women, we are mothers.

The last thing I want to do is be controversial, so please take this for what it is, let us normalise breastfeeding. ‘I’m so proud of this cover and for what it’s stands for. Model moms like Doutzen Kroes and Miranda Kerr have posted Instagrams of the act, while Olivia Wilde was featured in a Glamour editorial spread feeding her son, Otis. Thank you to ELLE for being so bold and making such an encouraging, positive and healthy statement. #womenunit.” “When I saw the [subscriber] cover of me breastfeeding, which was unplanned and just natural, I teared up and thought, ‘Wow this is such a special moment where my worlds have collided’,” Trunfio told the mag of her reaction to seeing the breastfeeding cover.

Earlier this year, when everyone was asking “Are they or aren’t they ” about Zedd and Gomez, Diplo teased the “Come & Get It” singer by tweeting a photo of himself and Zedd in an embrace saying “@selenagomez watch out.” And Diplo is no stranger to controversy. Kidspot.com.au writer Sabrina Rogers-Anderson told Daily Mail Australia the Elle cover was a gutsy move that displayed the model’s true beauty. ‘This beautiful shot took my breath away,’ she said. Last year he experienced the wrath of the Swifties when he suggested, “Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty.” Swift’s legion of fans, along with BFF Lorde, swung into action and defended their long-legged leader. The magazine also reported that baby Zion, whose dad is Grammy-winning artist Gary Clark Jr., apparently answered “nature’s call on the selection of international and local designer clothing worn by his mother in the shoot.” Oops.
