Before King, there was Gisele Bündchen, whose 2013 'gram of herself #multitasking, AKA breastfeeding whilst getting her hair, makeup, and nails done, immediately went viral. And after?

In honor of National Breastfeeding Month, we've rounded up all the stars who've unapologetically celebrated this powerful symbol of motherhood.
