Gisele Bundchen , take note: Breastfeeding imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Alyssa Milano , who gave birth to Elizabella Dylan two months ago, took a page from the supermodel’s playbook and posted a similar photo to Gisele’s famous breastfeeding photo on Nov. 7 via Instagram.

Even though Alyssa decided to leave the Mistresses cast due to family reasons, she showed her glam squad prepping her face and hair for a Marie Claire photo shoot while she nursed Elizabella.

This isn’t the first time the star shared a breastfeeding photo on social media, but maybe it’s a hint to show us we can expect another magazine breastfeeding photo shoot à la  Olivia Wilde!

“First day back at work! Shooting for @marieclairemag with @linhhair and @collierstrong and wearing my @marissawebb! #blessed.”

And while Gisele’s photo created controversy last December because some moms found her breastfeeding photo too public and just too Gisele perfect (not every mom has beauty help like that) for social media, tons of other celebrity moms have posted breastfeeding photos on social media since then.

And just for old time’s sake:

“What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready O que seria de mim sem esse esquadrão da beleza depois de voar 15 horas e só dormir 3 horas. #mutlitarefas #mepreparando.”

What do you think? Is Alyssa’s photo too much, or just right?
