Washington DC, [USA] July 18 (ANI): Model Mara Martin turned heads at the Sports Illustrated swimsuit fashion show on Sunday, when she walked the ramp while breastfeeding her five-month-old infant.
The 35-year-old took the concept of 'Take Your Kids to Work Day' to a whole new level and the Twitterverse can't stop talking about it.
Twitterers showered their support for the model on the micro-blogging site.
"Breastfeeding is natural. What kind of a person gets triggered by a mom feeding her kid," one wrote.

Another tweet said, "A great way to normalise #breastfeeding by #breastfeedinginpublic"

"Why is there all this fuss about a model breastfeeding her child? Firstly if breastfeeding wasn't such an issue this would never have made a headline and secondly, models are real people!" read another tweet.

Some twitterers however expressed their disapproval.
A user tweeted, "If i see a mom out in public breastfeeding on a park bench or something bc the baby needs to be fed, i woudnt bat an eye. But this runway thing was unnecessary & going overboard. The model could have walked out with her baby while not breastfeeding."

"This is probably the most ridiculous thing I've seen...right up there with Trumps recent press conference," another said.
