Elle magazine is saving an Australian supermodel's breastfeeding cover shot for subscriber editions only, opting for a less controversial photo for newsstands. 

The candid photo of Nicole Trufino breastfeeding her son Zion appears on the subscriber version of the June 2015 edition of Elle Australia, but the magazine chose a different photo for newsstands.

“This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set,” editor-in-chief Justine Cullen said, according to the magazine’s website. “It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.”

The magazine has received backlash from critics who say the photo should have been distributed on newsstands as well as to subscribers, the Daily Mail reported.

Cullen responded by calling the image a bonus for subscribers.

Zion, Trunfio’s first child with fianc√© Gary Clark Jr., was born in January.

Trunfio was moved by the photo.

“When I saw the [subscriber] cover of me breastfeeding, which was unplanned and just natural, I teared up and thought, ‘Wow this is such a special moment where my worlds have collided,'" she told Elle.

Trunfio, 29, spoke out about the photo on social media, urging her fans to normalize breastfeeding.



Twitter users shared mixed reactions.
