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 fame for her portrayal of Frida Kahlo in the 2002 movie “Frida.” She received Best Actress nominations for the film at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Academy Awards, the BAFTA Film Awards, and the Golden Globe Awards.
Hayek had appeared in a number of American films prior to “Frida.” Her other early hits include the 1995 films “Desperado,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Dogma,” and “Wild Wild West,” as well as the 1999 films “Desperado” and “Wild Wild West.” A sequel to one of her more recent movies, “The Hitman’s 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 new vows.
The pair, who have previously kept their relationship mainly hidden, are parents of a stunning daughter named 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 finding milk for her infant child. She shared this 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 eye and Valentina rarely makes appearances on her mom’s Instagram, as is the case with the kids of many prominent celebrities.
The famous actress was present at a significant UNICEF function in the past. The agency that manages humanitarian development for children is known as UNICEF, or United States 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 world.
The actress revealed, “This 15-year-old girl is sobbing, shaking 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 daughter,” she continued. Hayek then took an action that could only be described as heroic. I have milk, she exclaimed. She commanded the young African mother, “Give me the baby, give me the kid.”
The actress said, “I sat down and breastfed 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 baby because that 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 eventually reached Hayek’s publicist. “Why do you act in this way? Are you insane? Hayek recalled. They could have capitalized on that milking moment, but they were incredibly elegant and they never said anything, Hayek remarked after chatting with the journalist who shot the photo.
She said that a smart journalist who shot the photo was running an advocacy campaign for nursing in Africa three years later. After that, “the milk firms started sending,” according to Hayek. Without a doubt, Hayek’s kind act of giving 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 child 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.
