It goes without saying, that Chrissy Teigen uses her elevated social-media platform for good.
She regularly posts candid snaps of motherhood and we're not just talking about glowy faces and chubby baby toes. The 32-year-old also shares insights into the less-appealing side of parenting, including her swollen boobs highlighting visible veins, puffy ankles and daughter Luna smooshing soapy bubbles over her face. Yep, this is what motherhood is *really* like. Instagram influencers, take note.
The latest relatable snap gifted to us from the social media queen was Chrissy breastfeeding her 'twins'. She hilariously posted a funny photo of herself breastfeeding her 7-week-old son, Miles, as well as 2-year-old daughter, Luna's baby doll, which naturally got a reaction from trolls.
The photo was captioned, 'Luna making me feed her babydoll so I guess I have twins now'.
One Twitter user wrote: "Menstruating, childbirth and sex are natural, too, but that doesn't mean I want to see pics of it and/or celebrities like @chrissyteigen taking a bath or nursing. We get it."
The Queen Of The Universe clapped back with all the things she scrolls past on social media (avocado toast, for us) and fans went WILD.
I don’t care to see grainy fireworks, coachella selfies or infinity pool pics but i let people live. calm your tits and scroll on by. https://t.co/k604IcF55a— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 7, 2018
The tweet racked up 13k retweets and 18k likes and is quite possibly our favourite tweet of all time.
