Ex-pinup supplies 3 litres of milk a day
"Ten years ago, shapely blonde beauty Belinda Hall's special assets earned her the South African Penthouse Pet of the Year title.
She got fame, adoration - six million men voted her into the number one slot - and the chance to travel and live overseas.
She was also hailed as Miss October in the United States' Pet of the Year honours.
Now, although that has all been replaced with marriage and motherhood (her husband is Pinetown lawyer Andre Liebenberg), she is still something of a star.
'I knew my boobs would come in useful one day'
For not only does the new mom provide her four-month-old Down's Syndrome son, Anthony, with a litre of breast milk a day, she also supplies another two litres a day to a unique milk bank.
While she has to feed Anthony her breast milk in a bottle - like other Down's Syndrome babies he cannot 'latch on' - the extra milk she expresses is pasteurised by the milk bank and fed to two little Aids orphans at the iThemba Lethu Transition Home in Manor Gardens, Durban.
'I knew my boobs would come in useful one day,' quipped the supermom, who said she felt that all breastfeeding moms should consider donating milk if they can."
