·1-min read

Elsa Hosk has fired back at the criticism she's been receiving for sharing her breastfeeding photos on social media.

The Swedish model welcomed her first child, daughter Tuulikki Joan, in February, and on Tuesday, she posted a series of pictures on Instagram documenting her first day back at work.

In the snaps, Elsa is sat in a car breastfeeding her newborn, and she jokingly wrote alongside the images: "Mom's first day back on set and look who came along."

However, the Victoria's Secret Angel later took to her Instagram Stories to reveal she's been getting criticism from men who are "offended" by the pictures of her feeding her baby.

"Find it interesting the amount of DMs (direct messages) I get from men who get offended when you post a photo breastfeeding... why is the most natural thing so offending to you (sic)? Breasts literally exist so we can feed our children," the 32-year-old fired.

Her followers came to her defence and thanked her for normalising breastfeeding on social media.

"Congrats on being an amazing mother. To the men whining: Why are you looking if it bothers you? Please go away quietly..." one wrote.

Elsa announced the birth of her and her boyfriend Tom Daly's first child in a sweet post on Instagram back in February, when she posted a candid snap of the trio in bed.

"Tuulikki Joan Daly. 02.11.21. Happiest day of my life meeting you. Proudest moment in my life giving birth to you," she wrote.
