When Christina Torino-Benton’s nine-month-old daughter, Gemma, started crying in the middle of her June 18 wedding ceremony, she took one look at her fiancé, Danny Benton, and said: “It’s happening.” She then sat down and began to breastfeed.
“I made it work… I had to!” Christina told The Huffington Post. “Danny has always been so incredibly supportive on this breastfeeding journey, so he just nodded in agreement.”
No one blinked as the Canadian mama breastfed the couple’s daughter at the Resurrection of Our Lord Church in Lachine, Quebec, and the priest simply carried on with the ceremony.
“The people at my wedding were not surprised with me feeding Gemma mid-ceremony because I’m always feeding her at some point or another in front of them,” Christina said.
