Salma Valgarma Hayek Jiménez is the full name of Salma Hayek. In Mexico,

she started her career before relocating to Hollywood in 1991. Hayek gained

received Best Actress nods for the film at the Screen Actors Guild Awards,
the Academy Awards, the BAFTA Film Awards, and the Golden Globe

Hayek has appeared in a number of American films prior to “Frida.” Her

“Dogma,” and “Wild Wild West,” as well as the 1999 films “Desperado” and

Bodyguard,” titled “The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife,” was released in 2021.
Sonia Kincaid, played by Hayek, is the main subject of the movie.
Hayek is wed to François-Henri Pinault, a wealthy French businessman. On
March 9, 2007, the actress announced she was pregnant while also confirming
their engagement. On September 21, 2007, Hayek gave birth to their daughter,
Valentina Paloma Pinault, in Los Angeles, California. On February 14th,
2009, the pair tied the knot in Paris, France. In Venice, Italy, the same
year, they exchanged fresh vows.
The pair, who had previously kept their relationship mainly hidden, are
parents of a stunning daughter called Valentina, who is now 14 years old.
When weaning her daughter off breast milk, Hayek once recalled this moment
in great detail. While accepting a UNICEF award, she recalled the time she
assisted a young woman in Africa who was having trouble getting milk for her
infant child. She shared her memories and anecdote.
Valentina, Hayek’s daughter, was born in the same month as her famous
mother. According to HELLO! Magazine, Hayek wants to keep her underage child
out of the public spotlight and Valentina seldom makes appearances on her
mom’s Instagram, as is the case with the kids of many prominent

The famous actress was present at a significant UNICEF function in the
past. The institution that manages humanitarian development for children is
known as UNICEF, or United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund.
As she stepped on stage to accept a prize on behalf of UNICEF, Hayek
reflected on a memorable incident that she would like to share with the
The actress revealed, “This 15-year-old girl is weeping, trembling with a
newborn baby and she pleaded, “Please help me, I need milk.” Hayek recalled,
“We had so many things, but we didn’t have milk.” “Except I recall that I
had milk because I was weaning my baby,” she said. Hayek then took an action
that could only be described as heroic. I have milk, she said. She commanded
the young African mother, “Give me the baby, give me the kid.”
The actress said, “I sat down and nursed this baby.” She continued by
expressing how meaningful the occasion was for both the baby and herself.
She tried to mimic the tiny child’s shocked and joyous facial expressions as
she said, “I was intrigued by the infant because the kid took the first hit
of milk. Hayek said, “He was looking at me and saying, ‘Thank you.
Hayek continued by claiming that a journalist had captured the private
encounter on camera, and that word finally reached Hayek’s publicist. “Why
do you act in this way? Are you insane? Hayek recalled. They might have
capitalized on that milking moment, but they were incredibly graceful and
they never said anything, Hayek remarked after chatting with the journalist
who shot the photo.
She stated that a smart journalist who shot the photo was running an
advocacy campaign for nursing in Africa three years later. After then, “the
milk firms started sending,” according to Hayek. Without a doubt, Hayek’s
kind act of providing milk to a newborn benefitted a family in need. Hayek
expressed in a “Nightline” interview that she questioned whether feeding
another baby was the proper thing to do.
“Am I betraying my kid by giving away her milk?” said Hayek. “I really
believe that my infant would be quite proud to offer her milk. And I’m going
to make sure she stays a kind, giving person when she gets older,” the
actress said.
The culinary editor of Working Mother magazine in 2009, ABC journalist
Jennifer Perillo, said, “The other side is a woman whose body is creating
something naturally who is truly using it in such a powerful and wonderful
way.” Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz, who spoke with ABC, concurred, saying, “I
think it’s utterly ridiculous. But I tell them, “Go.” “She made a point, and
she made it loud and clear,” she continued. And look, it’s sparked a
discussion about how women should have a choice regarding nursing and that
we shouldn’t be so terrified of our bodies.
