Jade Roper responds to criticism of breastfeeding photo: "This is my real life"
UPI News Service, 02/13/2018
Jade Roper responded Monday after fans criticized her recent breastfeeding photo.
The 31-year-old spoke out in a series of Instagram Stories videos after social media users said she set "impossible" standards by posting a "staged" photo with her daughter, Emerson Avery.
"So, I had some comments about the picture I posted of me and Emerson after I was breastfeeding and people telling me they don't look like that when they breastfeed and that I was setting up a standard that's impossible to live up to," she said.
Roper faced backlash after sharing a post-breastfeeding photo Thursday to promote ThirdLove nursing bras. The picture shows Roper snuggling her daughter while wearing a black bra and makeup.
"The truth about that picture is I had a photo shoot the day before and I hadn't taken my makeup off, so that's literally the day before's makeup," the star explained.
"And it was slightly staged -- we positioned Emerson just right to make the picture [work], but that was literally right after I had fed her and she had fallen asleep on me and we do have those moments where we snuggle, so I don't get what's so unreal about it," she added.
