Chrissy Teigen Gets Real About Motherhood And Shows Her Post-Baby Body Through A Hilarious Instagram Post
Singer-songwriter John Legend and supermodel Chrissy Teigen recently welcomed their second baby, Miles Theodore Stephens. Last May 17, the Lip Sync Battle host took to Twitter to share the happy news.

Their firstborn daughter, Luna, is now 2. John, 39, and Chrissy, 32, have been open about their fertility struggles. The couple even had to defend their choice to use in vitro fertilization (IVF), which actually didn't work the first time they tried it. They sparked a controversy when they announced that they had chosen their baby's sex. “Not only am I having a girl, but I picked the girl from her little embryo,” Chrissy said. Netizens criticized them for preferring a gender and even spread rumors that the couple may have thrown male embryos in hopes of conceiving a girl.
In November 2017, the couple announced they were expecting their second child. In January 2018, they confirmed they were having a baby boy. Chrissy posted a photo of her at the Grammy Awards with the caption "mama and her baby boy." John and Chrissy reportedly created and froze embryos through IVF years ago, and in a tweet, Chrissy revealed that the embryo they had left was indeed a boy.
Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 30, 2017
Chrissy is known for her witty, real, and relatable Twitter and Instagram posts which have earned her quite a following. She loves posting photos with Luna, like this one below where they're bathing together.
But her latest post is a picture of herself in “Asian pear underwear.” This is in reference to Ali Wong’s Netflix Special titled Hard Knock Wife, wherein Ali compares maternity underwear to the net foam material used to protect fruits. The photo also shows Chrissy holding a wrapped pear on one hand and Miles Theodore Stephens on the other; Luna is also seen playing in the background.
Despite being seen all glammed up in award shows, fashion shows, and other events, we also love seeing her sans all the makeup and glitzy gowns. We admire how doting and hands-on she is as a mom.
