    With the caption "DiaFIERCE," the photo shows Chariz breastfeeding her newborn in her hospital bed and — wait for it — wearing a maternity diaper.

    GMA News posted the photo on its Facebook, and it has had more than 1,000 shares and 69,000+ reactions as of this writing. The 3,000+ comments are mostly positive, many from moms praising Chariz, who stars in Bubble Gang and co-hosts Mars Pa More, for the image.

    Others, however, wondered about the appropriateness of the photo since Chariz, who has two sons already with Vince Teotico, was in a diaper. We won't get into the debate whether it was right or wrong. But we do want to take this opportunity to highlight this fact: Every woman who gives birth will wear maternity diaper.
