Peter and Emily welcomed little Theo at the end of November. He is their second child together; daughter Amelia turned three on 7 January. Peter is also a dad to nine-year-old Princess and 11-year-old Junior from his marriage to Katie Price. Pete's decision to publish the breastfeeding photo came hours after Tamara Ecclestone issued a passionate response after receiving criticism for sharing pictures of her daughter Sophia – who will be three next month – nursing.

Tamara posted a new image from an elegant photoshoot with photographer Ivette Ivens as she opened up about previous comments she had received from online trolls. "Find it a very sad and surprising sign of the times and the world we live in that the act of breast feeding your child evokes such hatred in so many bitter people," she wrote. "I am astonished that breast feeding mums get such a hard time as there is no reason why we should."

The 32-year-old continued: "I would never ask someone when they will take away their toddlers bottle or follow on formula or cows milk or dummy or comforter. Nor do I judge those who choose to formula feed their children or give them cows milk. I support and empower all mums and I personally believe hatred is so heavy and bad for the soul. I hope by the time Fifi is a mumma people who have chosen to be open about their breast feeding journey will mean that seeing a picture of a mum feeding their child won't evoke any reaction and that it is seen only for what it is, a mum doing her best."
