Chrissy Teigen shares candid video of her post-pregnancy body with stretch marks
The model and cookbook author is learning how to embrace her ‘new body’ two months after giving birth to her second child Miles Theodore. She shared revealing images of her body and reflected about body confidence.
32-year-old Chrissy Teigen is enjoying a well-deserved vacation with her husband, singer John Legend, and their two children in Bali, where she has photographed her post-pregnancy body and posted it on an Instagram story to make a statement.
In her video, which is also on her Twitter account, the mother-of-two showed the stretch marks from both pregnancies, to fight against the avalanche of 'perfect' bodies that appear on social media. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
Teigen pointed the camera to her belly to expose her stretch marks, wearing just a bikini bottom with floral design. ‘I guess these just aren’t going to go away. This is my new body,’ she said the clip.
That same July 30, the star went back to Twitter to comment on the unrealistic beauty standards that the most influential people keep establishing, and how they affect the confidence of the general population who don’t meet the expectations.
‘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.’
Even though she has cemented her reputation as a celebrity mother who is not afraid of sharing what a real post-pregnancy body looks like and who is not only portraying a ‘glamorous’ side of maternity, she admits it doesn’t come easy for her.
‘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!’ she tweeted.
