Elsa Hosk hit back at the critics who thought the model posing nude with her 7-month-old daughter was “child pornography.”

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel, 32, penned a lengthy response on her Instagram Story on Tuesday after a commenter claimed to have reported the photo for the “safety” of baby Tuulikki.

“Wow. Posting a picture where I’m with my baby naked is not child pornography. It’s a normal thing,” Hosk began.

She wrote that moms “all over the world” pose nude with their kids “every day,” arguing that it’s her choice whether she wants to share photos like that. She also slammed those who brought up pedophiles and what they might do with the photo.

“If some sick person on the internet thinks it’s porn that’s that persons [sic] problem not mine,” she continued. “I refuse to live my life according to or in fear of sick people on the internet. I don’t live in that fear.”

The model called “skin to skin” contact with her baby “beautiful” and her “favorite thing” because of the strong bond it creates. She also credited growing up abroad for allowing her to cherish her nude form.

“Growing up in Sweden I was naked ALL the time, at beaches, at home, in public,…it was so natural to us and we were not taught that our bodies were some thing you had to hide away in fear of what strangers might think,” she explained. “I think it created a very healthy relationship to nudity and to my own body.

“I never felt weird about being naked.”

Hosk then credited her boyfriend, Tom Daly, with snapping what she saw as a “beautiful moment.”

“If you think it’s porn or a ‘thirst trap’ shame on you, not shame on me,” she wrote. “I respect anyone’s choice what they do with their bodies or what the [sic] choose to post or not post. Don’t worry about the safety of my baby, she is right where she belongs, literally naked in my arms.”

Hosk and Daly welcomed Tuulikki on Feb. 1.
