She has been sitting on a park bench away from others when the woman walked up to her, carrying a baby of her own, to harass the singer and mother of three about “being modest.”

Michelle Branch said of the incident, “I just got shamed by another mother (who was holding her own young infant!) for nursing my 6 week old baby on a bench at a playground while my toddler was playing […] She said I wasn’t ‘being modest’ I am in shock that this kind of judgement was coming from a fellow mom!”

The singer had been breastfeeding her six-week-old daughter, Willie Jacquet, and minding her own business. Willie is the most recent addition to the 38-year-old’s family with husband Patrick Carney, and was born on February 2. They also have a three-year-old, Rhys James. Branch also has a 16-year-old, Owen Isabelle, from her previous marriage.

Branch followed up her initial tweet with another comment about the situation, saying, “…and to clarify, I had a nursing tank top on and was seated away from others. It’s not like I walked into the crowd and whipped my tits out. Being a mom is hard enough. Can we not judge one another for how we feed our babies?”

Willie Jacquet is a welcome addition to the singer’s family after she shared publicly about her miscarriage back in December of 2020 on Instagram. 

“2020 was like, ‘nah, I ain’t done yet.’ December decided to really finish us off with a bang! No, literally. A bomb went off in downtown Nashville yesterday. And to further twist a dagger in my heart, I experienced my first miscarriage …”

She posted a photo of her newborn daughter on Instagram with the caption, “Welcome to the world, sweet Willie girl ❤️ Willie Jacquet Carney was born on 2/2/22. She’s named after Patrick’s grandmother Willie Madge and has my mother’s maiden name/my middle name. We’re so in love 🥰”

Fans of Michelle Branch were unimpressed with the other mother’s bullying attitude and shared their own experiences and views under her tweets about the encounter.
