Chrissy Teigen claps back at mom shamers after their comments on a photo of her with baby Miles
Chrissy Teigen's social media antics are favourites of the internet. Whether it's her cooking, her self-deprecating jokes, or her hilarious trolling of her husband John Legend, she's become one of the most popular celebs on Twitter and Instagram, with 18.4 million followers on the photo-sharing site alone. And it doesn't hurt that she has two of the cutest kids around.
Since the birth of her second child, Miles, in May, we've been able to see some of the most adorable snaps of the youngest members of their family. The first photo of Luna and Miles together that she released had her legions of fans stunned. With her brother at just eleven days old, Luna holds the pacifier for the little one in an unbelievably cute shot of the pair.
Teigen's second pregnancy was announced all the way back in November last year, through a cute little video of Luna pointing to her belly and saying "Baby!"
At the end of last month, the model opened up about the process of having both Luna and Miles, for which she and her husband used IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation). Teigen posted an innocent snap of Miles, along with the caption, "Hey dudes". However, one fan got personal and asked her, "I know IVF was used for Luna, was it used for baby brother also?"
Teigen, who has called the IVF treatment she used with Luna a "miracle" process in the past, then replied:
"Yep, he was on ice a smidge longer. Science and the human body are beautiful. I wasn’t offended by it – people are just curious and I think hearing success stories gives people hope. I’m all for talking about IVF."
Glad to see someone with her platform being honest about it, many commenters spoke about their own experiences too. "Thank you so much for being open about IVF," one wrote. "I am on day 5 of injections and your posts about your sweet babies are totally keeping me positive."
Now, Teigen has posted an adorable photo of herself holding both Luna and Miles, along with a caption in line with her typically self-aware humour. She wrote: “Should I post the one where his head looks unsupported but my face looks good and Luna is over it, the one where his head is supported but my face is just okay and Luna is over it, or him crying and my face looks okay and luna is over it?”
Given the fact that the photo showed them at the beach, with her newborn under the glare of the sun, there were plenty of commenters out there to criticise Teigen for her actions (even though they have no real context for what happened).
"Why is that baby out in the sun like that ?that’s why he crying," one wrote, while another said: "Poor child is crying & taking in the sun !! sheesh." But Teigen wasn't having any of it. When one fan commented that Miles didn't "look too happy with the sun in his little eyes," she replied: "he told me he loves it".
This isn't the only time Teigen has managed to be both witty and entirely relatable on social media, as she recently showed us all a genius hack for taking a toddler's photo.
