Chrissy Teigen on why she is proud to show off her stretch marks and 'mum bod'

Two months after she gave birth to her son, Chrissy Teigen has confessed to feeling "super insecure" about her post-baby body.

The TV presenter and her husband, singer John Legend, welcomed Miles Theodore in May - and the mum-of-two has been sharing constant parenthood updates ever since.

Her latest one involved her giving fans a close up of her stretch marks, as she declared "this is my new body".

She captioned the video, which saw her zooming in on her stretch marks, as: "mom body alert".

She followed it up with a series of posts on Twitter, where she explained her reasoning for sharing the unedited images.

She candidly admitted that she is "super insecure" about her post-pregnancy body, but that she hopes the photos would help her millions of social media followers to gain confidence.

She wrote:

"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.

"Also I don’t really call this '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!"

The mum's comments appear to have really struck a chord with her followers, after they were re-shared and 'liked' tens of thousands of times.
