Salma Hayek: Mom on a Mission
Motherhood inspired Salma Hayek to take on one more high-profile role: saving women and children in Africa.
Salma Hayek on mothering (and breastfeeding) continued...
“I’m a more fulfilled human being now, and I probably wouldn’t have been 10
years ago. She gets a better mother for being born now.”
And women and babies in countries thousands of miles away benefit too, as
Hayek’s mama-bear instincts for her daughter translate into a desire to protect
other women’s children as well.
“Women in America can help other women and children from really remote
places in the world, who are in such need. We can save their lives by doing
something we were going to do anyway -- buy diapers and wipes,” says Hayek.
“How can you not?”
