Chrissy Teigen always keeps it real. She doesn't act holier-than-thou even though she's a mega-famous model who's married to a mega-famous musician. That's why we love her. Well, one of the reasons.
In the most Chrissy Teigen fashion, she recently shared an Instagram Story showing her post-baby body up close and personal. "No! I thought I did such a good job with my creams! My hips!" she cried in the background of the video, while panning across her — dun dun dun — stretch marks.
Ah, the joys of pregnancy. Not even models are immune to those dreaded post-baby stretch marks. They, too, are just human.
Teigen gave birth just two weeks ago to a healthy baby boy named Miles Theodore. And just like with her and John Legend's first child, Luna Simone, she's been very candid about life during and after pregnancy. Last week, she posted a photo wearing those uber-attractive medical-grade mesh high-rise undies while breastfeeding Miles topless in the kitchen. Meanwhile, Luna is playing with a child-size harp in the middle of the room. You know, typical mom stuff.
This isn't the first time she's been real AF about those "stretchies" either. Teigen told Health.com back in April that although she's very susceptible to the dreaded streaks, she refuses to use those lotions that claim to get rid of them. "I am a firm believer that no cream will sew together ripped skin. That’s bonkers to me that anyone even buys those. I just live with the ones I have; I’m cool with that," she said.
She's even shared some personal shots of her stretch marks on her thighs before, proving she's forever the most relatable celebrity mom.
Oh, and unlike many other celebrities who have recently given birth, Teigen isn't all that concerned with getting back to her "pre-baby shape." She wants to have another baby first, then get hot again.
Thank you, Chrissy, for not giving a f**k and embracing your body in all its glory. You're the real MVP.
