Aww! Philip Wheeler Defends His Girlfriend's Breastfeeding Selfie

Ashley Nicole and Philip Wheeler

As if we needed another reason to love the Miami Dolphins linebacker!

Philip Wheeler is officially our knight in shining armour. When he caught wind of people criticizing girlfriend Ashley Nicole for posting a picture of herself breastfeeding their son on Instagram, he immediately came to the rescue by defending her as well as her right to her own body.

Remember when the gorgeous (and incredibly famous) Giselle Bundchen posted that selfie of herself breastfeeding and was pretty much praised for it? That situation is no different from this one. Regardless of where people stand on breastfeeding in public, it doesn't give anyone the right to send hateful messages (especially to a stranger). We love the fact that this totally adorable couple stood their ground. You go, Glenn Coco!
