So when Allison Hepler agreed to be in her best friend Rachael Downs’s wedding on Oct. 25, 2019, she had her pumping sessions planned down to the second. But of course, plans often go awry — especially during weddings — so when Allison was asked if she’d be comfortable posing for a photo with her breast pump in tow, she didn’t flinch. Thankfully, photographer Amber Fletcher captured the perfect shot, and it pays homage to parents everywhere.

“Rachael has always been supportive and knew exactly what I needed as she had already been down that road,” Allison told POPSUGAR. “So I was pumping four times a day at the time of her wedding. One was while we were getting ready and the other was right before the ceremony. I was trying to squeeze in a session

Matt Nagy’s Ditka-Style Rant Sent Message Well Received

There was a little Mike Ditka in Matt Nagy and his players didn’t mind hearing it one bit.

When the Bears coach went on a Ditka-like tirade on Friday about his offense’s execution—or lack therof—the message hit home.  

Better yet, they agreed. 

Well, calling it a Ditka-style tirade is stretching it a bit but for Nagy it was not his usual positive, supportive self. So when players heard this they knew he meant business.

“I think everybody should be fired up about that,” Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson said. “That’s what also makes the players that we have in this locker room special, is we don’t have any complacency. None of our quarterbacks are complacent.
