Rachel McAdams may have been highly secretive about her pregnancy and the subsequent birth of her baby, but she's not going to hide the joys or trials of motherhood ever, thank you very much. The Academy Award-nominated actress was recently shooting for the cover of Girls. Girls. Girls. magazine and, according to its publisher Claire Rothstein, decided to include pictures of herself pumping breast milk - while dressed in Versace couture and sporting Bulgari jewellery, no less - in the shoot.

Taking to Instagram, Rothstein shared details from the shoot as well as the soon-to-be-iconic image itself, writing, "A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture. Obviously #rachelmcadams looks incredible and was quite literally the dream to work with but also this shoot was about 6 months post her giving birth to her son, so between shots she was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding. We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about who’s idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more. Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great. Besides she’s wearing Versace and bulgariofficial diamonds and is just fucking major. Big shout out to all the girls" (sic).

Other mothers, whether new or old or working or stay-at-home lost their collective minds at McAdam's devil-may-care attitude and refusal to hide what is such a natural process, which is still considered taboo by so many sections of society.

From posting their own pictures inspired by McAdams' shoot to sharing their own 'pumping' stories to just giving a shout-out to the actress, the ladies of the internet celebrated in all kinds of ways.
