Chrissy Teigen might be a supermodel but she’s also all about keeping it real. And the second-time mum wants to make sure everyone knows that motherhood (especially in those first few weeks) is not glamorous no matter who you are.
The 32-year-old, who welcomed son Miles Theodore just last week, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself – postpartum underwear or “Asian pear underwear” as she called it, comparing herself to the plastic wrapping that comes around fruit, a reference to comedian Ali Wong’s new Netflix special about motherhood, Hard Knock Wife.
To make it even better she appeared to be breastfeeding the little one at the same time, and her adorable two-year-old daughter Luna also makes an appearance in the background.
Fans praised the new mum for sending a positive message to new mums.
“Love to see real pictures like that! Instead of three weeks post partum flat six-pack bellies, achieved through plastic surgery. Love it,” one fan wrote.
“Thanks @chrissyteigen for showing “real” life. So good for our daughters to see instead of all the “beautiful”/edited /filtered pics on social media. You rock!! #reallife #beautiful#family,” wrote another.
After the birth Chrissy shared another “real” tweet about how her post-partum experience second-time around compared to her first.
“I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you don't rip to your butthole. Baby boy: 1 point. Luna: 0,” she wrote on Twitter.
