Salma Hayek breastfeeds African baby

Hollywood sex symbol Salma Hayek decided to breast feed an African baby on a visit to Sierra Leone. The 42-year-old Mexican actress is currently breast feeding her own one-year-old daughter and fed the African infant after his own mother's milk had dried up.

The footage of Hayek feeding the hungry tot were shown on the American programme Nightline last night. She admitted that her great-grandmother had performed a similar service in Mexico.

"My great-grandmother was in a Mexican village and they found a woman in the street inconsolably crying and the baby was also crying, crying, crying," the star of From Dusk Till Dawn told reporters. "My great-grandmother went up to her and said "What is the matter?" and the mother said, 'She is very, very hungry and I have no more milk'. And in the street my great-grandmother took the baby and breastfed that baby who instantly stopped crying and went peacefully to sleep."
