Chrissy Teigen gets honest about her “changing body” after birth of daughter

“You are too perfect to worry about any of it!”

Chrissy Teigen has been praised after she opened up about her “changing body” following the birth of her daughter.

The model welcomed her fourth child in January with husband John Legend, with the couple also sharing Luna, Miles and Jack, who sadly passed away at 20 weeks.

Their fourth child, Etsi, was conceived through IVF and only a few months after she was born, Chrissy has gotten extremely honest about how her body has changed since her daughter was born.

Sharing an image of herself holding Etsi in the bath, Chrissy wrote: “A boob that somehow hangs all along my side and deep purple lifetime scars but you are too perfect to worry about any of it !”

Chrissy’s followers were quick to comment support after her honesty in her post.

One person said: “Thank you for being brave (though it shouldn’t be brave) enough to post suck real photos. I think there’s a dysmorphia that is happening because everything is so filtered and contrived. This is just what people look like when we take down the veil. There is beauty in real. And in knowing that we sacrifice to make these beautiful little people. Our bodies are meant to be lived in!”

Another said: “When I was pregnant with my first, this older English gentleman told me, how beautiful I was and that any stretch marks were nothing but the beauty marks of giving life. And not to be ashamed but proud. And I never forgot that and changed my whole prospective for the good!!”

A third wrote: “Thank you for this picture! Second time mama with a 3 month old and I feel like I don’t recognize this body. Bounce back culture is causing me to have a lot of self disapproval and to see a celeb with all the resources in the world show such a real pic makes me feel like I’m right where I need to be.”
