Rebekah Vardy’s boobs are bigger than her baby’s head.
The 34-year-old beauty doesn’t have any issues whipping her breasts out in public to feed her two-week-old son Finley, whom she has with her husband Jamie Vardy, but she can’t help but giggle at the fact her bosoms are double the size of the little one.
Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she said: "The positive reaction I received over the picture I posted of me breastfeeding Finley during my OK! photoshoot last week surprised me. Some called it inspiring and I think the more people who post stuff like this, the more breastfeeding in public becomes acceptable. If Finley is hungry and I’m out in public, my boob is coming out. He’s not going to wait until I’, home and I don’t care if people have a problem with that. I was fortunate enough to have my baby with me when I was working and no else on the shoot cared that I breastfed – they just laughed at my boob being bigger than Finley’s head."
However, Rebekah has now decided to start expressing her milk so that her husband Jamie – who she married last year – can help out with the feeding from time to time.
She explained: "I’ve just started expressing so Jamie can start feeding Finley, because dads can feel left out sometimes. I’m using Munchkin Latch baby bottles which help with combined feeding – the teats are like real nipples so Finley doesn’t get nipple confusion. I’m getting back to being me after the birth.
"I’m back doing the school run and although Finley is still up a lot in the night, my stash of chocolate biscuits beside my bed has been getting me through."
Rebekah – who also has two-year-old daughter Sofia with her spouse – had a very traumatic delivery with Finley as the tot’s head had blocked her cervix, meaning her waters couldn’t break and the process couldn’t progress the way it should.
She said: "The pain of labour was so intense, I was in agony. I nearly broke Jamie’s fingers. [The midwife] broke my waters without a consultant in the end because of the pain I was in, the level of my contractions and how long they were lasting."
