Australian model Nicole Trunfio has appeared on the cover of Elle Australia breastfeeding her adorable son Zion Rain.

The cover, which is an exclusive subscriber version of the June 2015 cover, features a candid one moment captured by photographer Georges Antoni.

“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 has explained to media. “It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.”

“There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than motherhood,” Trufino revealed in an Instagram post. “The last thing I want to do is be controversial, so please take this for what it is, let us #normalizebreastfeeding there is nothing worse than a mother that is judged for feeding her hungry child in public.

“#weareonlyhuman I’m so proud of this cover and for what it stands for. 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.

“Thank you to ELLE for being so bold and making such an encouraging, positive and healthy statement. #womenunite.”
