: Stars always talk about helping starving children in Africa. Well MediaTakeOut.com has learned that actress Salma Hayak is doing something about it.
Here’s how the UK’s Daily Mail is reporting it:
The 42-year-old [actress Salma Hayak], who has a one-year-old daughter Valentina, was touring a hospital when she came across a mother who was unable to feed her baby boy.
Although TV cameras were there from ABC’s Nightline news programme, the actress did not hesitate.
Hayek said: ‘The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother did not have any milk. He was very hungry – I was weaning my daughter Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk, so I breast-fed the baby.’
She added: ‘It was amazing because he’s really looking at me and he’s very little. My baby is one year so she can suck a lot harder.’
That seems a bit EXTREME to us … but at least the child got to eat!!!
