Motherhood is hard and definitely not always glamorous but in a recent couture shoot Rachel McAdams proved that motherhood can be sexy.

Clad in Versace and breast pumps the new mother showed that while she is a glamorous actress for her being a mom comes first. The glowing actress posed for the cover of Girls.Girls.Girls magazine and was photographed by founder Claire Rothstein. Previously McAdams has kept her personal life mostly private, which is why her pregnancy reveal in November was a surprise to most.

According to the photographer Rothstein, between shots, McAdams “was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding. We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about who’s idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more.”

“I know not all moms can breastfeed, and not all babies latch, but when it does work out, celebrate it. It’s natural, beautiful, and f**king hard work. So whether you’re breastfeeding, pumping, or doing one or both, own it, document it, and help normalize it. This photo of Rachel McAdams was taken by @clairerothstein for @girls.girls.girls.magazine, mine was taken in my office while in the middle of teaching because my breasts were about to explode. It’s not glamorous, and ironically we are both in plaid, but I needed to remember that moment”
