It’s not out of the ordinary for Teigen to share insight into life as a mum of two (remember when she popped a pic of her medical mesh underwear on Insta?), however this time she touched on a subject the WH team are pretty passionate about: Body confidence.
In a video posted on Twitter, the star shared a close-up of her postpartum stretch marks, saying: “Guess these aren’t gonna go away. This is my new body.”
She continued with a series of Tweets voicing her insecurities with her 'mom bod' and postpartum stretch marks: “Instagram is crazy. I think it’s awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!!) but I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ol’ bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing.”
Anyone else nodding in agreement?
We’re all for self-love and body confidence, however pressure – from social channels or otherwise – to feel 100% confident in oneself 100% of the time can be completely (and unnecessarily) overwhelming.
If you ask us, it’s okay not to have badass levels of body confidence 24/7. We're all works-in-progress, and Teigen is no different.
“'I don’t really call [sharing a video of postpartum stretch marks] 'body confidence' because I’m not quite there yet. I’m still super insecure. I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!”
Three cheers for Teigen. Hip hip...
