Michael Beach’s Wife Elisha Wilson Once Went Viral for Her Breastfeeding Post
Michael Beach's wife, Elisha Wilson Beach, once took the internet by storm when a picture of her breastfeeding her toddler went viral.
However, she was also subjected to a fair share of internet scrutiny for the same picture.
The picture of Elisha breastfeeding her toddler while sitting on the toilet with her trousers around her ankles was originally posted on her Instagram, but it truly went viral when a Facebook page ran it on their page.
Elisha Wilson Beach Bashed for Breastfeeding Photo
The picture of the multi-tasking mother breastfeeding their toddler whilst on the crapper sparked outrage from fans on the grounds of being unhygienic.
The unapologetic photo came with the most fitting caption.
"This is motherhood and it ain't always pretty," she quipped before asking, "What's your #momtruth?"
The caption was followed by numerous other hashtags: #motherhood, #motherhoodaintpretty, #tmi, #confessionsofamom, #ididthat, and #iamnotsorry.
When the photo made its way onto Facebook, a user, Amanda Martin, stressed how she would never breastfeed her child in the bathroom.
"It's unsanitary regardless," she posed. "Stick your kid in the crib until you're done, or pump it and give it to them."
Another user disagreed with everyone who previously claimed that the picture was beautiful. In fact, they found it quite distasteful.
"Would you allow your partner to take a picture of you while doing the toilet? And then post it for all to see?" they questioned.
Elisha Wilson Beach's Line of Reasoning
Some netizens began speculating if the picture framed Elisha wasn't really breastfeeding. Instead, it was her elbow in the shot.

She later defended her decision to upload the picture, with full knowledge that it might offend netizens, by confessing that it was a part of the reality of motherhood.
Elisha then explained how the outrage was dichotomous.
On one hand, people were seen calling out other people for pretending to live picture-perfect lives on social media.
At the same time, they criticized people for living their truth.
She also showed her support to mothers who were doubting themselves based on the staged social media posts.
The doting wife and mother went on to add: "Well, this is reality and so many mothers are doing this exact thing right now. Motherhood ain't pretty but then that's what makes it so beautiful."
