Chrissy Teigen just gave birth to son Miles a few months ago and is still adjusting to her postpartum body. The Twitter queen is on vacation in Bali with her family, so she shared a video of her bikini body with the caption, “mom bod alert.” In the video, she highlights her newly acquired stretch marks and tells her fans, “I guess these just aren’t going to go away. This is my new body.”
She then jokingly posted a heavily edited photo of her body to Instagram, but got real on Twitter that it’s hard to withstand the barrage of perfect bodies on social media.
“Instagram is crazy,” she tweeted. “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.”
Fans responded to her tweet by calling her “body confident” and “body positive” — though Teigen admitted that she’s still a work in progress when it comes to self-love.
“I don’t really call this ‘body confidence,'” Teigen tweeted. “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!”
Teigen also told Entertainment Tonight, “I know I’m not going to have those curves and that waistline, this is it, take it or leave it.” This is why we love this woman!
