Video: Salma Hayek Breastfeeds Baby Boy in West Africa

Salma Hayek has given new meaning to the word generosity, breastfeeding an ailing baby boy in West Africa and allowing TV cameras to capture the experience.

ABC's Nightline recently traveled with Hayek to Sierra Leone, where the star is relaunching Pampers and UNICEF's One Pack=One Vaccine program to stop the spread of tetanus among women in Africa, and watched as she helped out another new mother who had no milk to offer her one-week old child. After Hayek breastfed the boy, who was coincidentally born on the same day as Valentina Paloma, she reflected on the experience.

"I thought about it—am I being disloyal to my child by giving her milk away? And actually, I think that my baby would be proud to be able to share her milk...and when she grows up, I'm gonna make sure that she continues to be a generous, caring person. And I think that's the best thing I can give her as a mother."
