Elsa Hosk hits back at critics who claim her nude photo with daughter is ‘child porn’

On Tuesday morning, Elsa Hosk shared a photo of herself completely naked as she cradled seven-month-old daughter Tuulikki Joan Daly in her arms for a series of Instagram photos.

And soon after sharing Mommy and Me photos, her comment section was inundated by internet moms who criticized her for sharing a nude photo of her child — some even called it “child pornography.”

Elsa, 32, hit back at critics with a scathing response to her Instagram stories: “If you think it’s porn or a ‘thirst trap’, shame on you, don’t shame me.”

The Swedish-born supermodel reposted a comment someone had written under the nude photos, claiming to have reported the image “for the safety of the baby and yours.”

The troll continued: ‘You know you can get into serious trouble if you post child porn, right? I know you’re a new mom, but this is just basic knowledge.’

Elsa denied it was child porn, calling it a “normal thing” that “happens every day”: “And if I choose to post that, that’s my choice. If a sick person on the internet thinks it’s porn, that’s that person’s problem, not mine.”

The former Victoria’s Secret star further explained: “I refuse to live my life according to or out of fear of sick people on the internet. I don’t live in that fear…’

The star went on to say that she loves being naked with her daughter as the skin-to-skin contact makes their bond even stronger and helps them connect.

“Being naked with my baby is the most beautiful and my favorite thing.”

Elsa said growing up in Sweden was ‘always naked’, including on the beach, at home and in public, which was ‘so natural for us’.

The model said she hadn’t been taught in her country that your body was “something to hide for fear of what strangers might think.”

This kind of view of the naked body, she says, has “created a very healthy relationship with nudity and with my own body.”

Adding that nudity is part of everyday ‘when you have a baby’ life.

The trio of photos that caused quite a stir were taken by her old friend Tom Daly.

“This photo was a beautiful moment captured by my friend. If you think it’s porn or a ‘thirst trap’ then shame on me, don’t shame me.’

She capped it off by saying that she respects people’s choice in what they do with their bodies, what they post or not.

“Don’t worry about my baby’s safety, she’s where she belongs, literally in my bare arms.”

The trio of photos featured the breathtaking view of New York City, along with the caption, “Let me tell you about the city where I fell in love with your father…”

Next to the photo of her swaying Tuulikki, a second photo shows her on the bed and looking at the view over the city.

The last image shared showed Elsa lying on the bed with her daughter playing next to her, the cityscape now to the side.

Elsa welcomed Tuulikki on February 11, 2021 with Tom, whom she started dating in 2015.

She announced the birth with a sweet wink from the family of three with an explanation for the name: ‘2.11.21 The happiest day of my life meeting you. The proudest moment of my life when you were born. Named after two strong women, my mother and my mother-in-law, you came into this world as a superwoman with your fist next to your face.’

Elsa revealed her pregnancy news in September 2020 with a series of photos taken by photographer Sante D’Orazio.

She wrote: ‘I have kept this angel in my stomach a secret for a while. I feel beyond excited and lucky to have a baby and start the next chapter of my life with the man of my dreams!!!!’
