Chrissy Teigen Was Ready for Mom-Shamers after Video of Luna's 1st Dentist Visit
Chrissy Teigen is used to being mom-shammed, but that doesn’t mean she will just sit and take critics when it comes to his beautiful children with John Legend.
In the most recent development of Chrissy Teigen vs. haters, the model and TV host slammed one user that criticized her for not taking her daughter Luna to the dentist sooner.
Teigen took to Instagram to share an adorable video of the 3-year-old girl on her first visit to the dentist, and the post caused mixed opinions among her followers.
"You just have to have your view and stick with it and stay true to what you believe is best for your kids."
In the clip, Luna is sitting on her grandmother Vilailuck Teigen‘s lap while brushing the teeth of a crocodile plushie following the dentist’s instructions. “Are you brushing your teeth at home too?” the dentist asks, to which Luna replies with a shy “Yeah.”
“So proud of my toons at her first dentist appointment!!” Teigen captioned her post.
“Isn’t it dangerous for her to be that close to an alligator? Very concerning Chrissy,” one fan joked in the comment section, mocking the upcoming flow of mom-shamming comments that would follow.
“You need to take them as soon as they get teeth can’t believe that’s her first dentist appoint met,” one user pointed out.
A second one chimed in saying: “Luna definitely should have seen a dentist multiple times by now as kids should go twice a year!"
“Was waiting for this. U guys never fail me.”
Of course, the vast majority of people defended Teigen and fired back at the mommy-shamers, like one dental hygienist who wrote:
“As a dental hygienist, it is totally fine to wait until 3 to have your child’s first cleaning. People talk like they know everything. Stop judging.”
NOT THE FIRST TIME
Teigen, who shares Luna, 3 and son Miles, 1, with husband John Legend, tries to be unfazed by the negative comments she gets daily. However, she confessed in “Today” that sometimes the comments get to her.
“Certain days it gets to me more than other days,” she stated. “And I realized if I read Twitter too early when I wake up, I tend to be like, a little more moody with it and things get to me more.”
Just a few weeks ago, Teigen fired back at one user who dared to shame her daughter’s hair.
Chrissy shared a two-part video of a faux “trial for candy,” in which Luna negotiated how many pieces of candy she would get if she promised to be on her best behavior.
While most fans focused on how articulate and smart the little girl is, one user wrote: “Finally someone brushed her hair.”
“All by herself! Maybe she can come do your makeup.”
OVERTHINKING TO AVOID HATERS
The “Lip Sync Battle” star also revealed that the pressure from haters in social media is such, that sometimes she finds herself overthinking when it comes to sharing pics or videos of her kids.
“It’s weird because you have to think of everything,” she explained.
"If I want to share a picture or take a video of Luna singing in her car seat, I have to make sure every little piece of her car seat is in the right place or else everyone will get mad at me for having it the wrong way.”
Chrissy says that as a mom is natural she wants to protect her babies, and added: “So people can say anything about me, but if it gets into the kids, I become mama bear.”
However, Teigen also admitted that sometimes she could fall on the “giving unsolicited advice” train too, and she knows from experience that can come off badly.
