Keeping it real. Chrissy Teigen is opening up when it comes to her post-pregnancy body. The mom of two, who welcomed son Miles just 10 weeks ago, took to Instagram to reveal she’s “insecure” about her “mom bod,” showing off her stretch marks and mosquito bites while on vacation in Bali.
“I guess these aren’t going away,” the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model can be heard saying in a video of her bikini-clad bottom and mid-section. “This is my body.”
The cookbook author also took to Twitter to explain this isn't "body confidence," just her being candid.
“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,” she tweeted. “Also I don’t really call this ‘body confidence’ because I’m not quite there yet,” she continued. “I’m still super insecure. I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!”
The model, who shares kids Luna and Miles with husband John Legend, has been keeping it real since welcoming Miles earlier this summer.
After working out on a pilates reformer while on vacay over the weekend, she jokingly photoshopped her body and captioned an Instagram Story photo of her warped body: “I have been training. to be an Instagram fitness model. this is after one bag of tea and 5 reps of 2 squats !!!! If I can do it so Can U!!!!”
“OK back to being stupid!” she concluded on Twitter after her candid tweets.
We love you, Chrissy!
