Chrissy Teigen massively overshares in tweet talking about birth of new baby boy
Ever since Chrissy Teigen and John Legend announced the birth of their second child, we've all been waiting for more news on the sure-to-be-adorable baby boy. What's his name? Does he look more like Chrissy or John? How has little Luna reacted to the arrival of her new little brother? We're all keen to find out and are here whenever the couple feels like telling us.
The pair haven't shared many details on the new addition to the Legend clan so far. However, on Sunday Chrissy told her fans one thing that they weren't completely sure they wanted to hear. In a particularly honest tweet, the model announced to her followers that the recent birth was a whole lot easier than having her first child, for one particular reason, writing: "I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you don't rip to your butthole. Baby boy: 1 point. Luna: 0".
Hilariously, her followers weren't quite sure how to take the news, with some thrilled that she felt comfortable enough to talk about a topic that many people felt they couldn't speak out on, and others claiming that her words had given them an effective method of birth control.
Many mothers commented on the cookbook author's post, sharing their own experiences of ripping while giving birth, with user @annalise_webb writing: "Your doctor must have been woeful, love. Mine’s the same age, I had over 100 internal and external stitches and I healed fine. Back in the saddle in six weeks." Gatun_CZ also chipped in, posting "My baby boy will be 25 in August and my butt still hurts."
Others weren't so enthused, with user @jackiecarbajal making her feelings clear, writing: "EWWWWWWWWW (grateful to have undergone a c-section when i had my almost 9lb baby)". Chrissy's tweet also proved rather informative for some men, with user @MikeSwords putting: "This tweet is so much more educational than I would have pictured...."
In a less explicit tweet, Chrissy also revealed that the new baby looks a little like Luna. Responding to a question from Stephanie Hines about whether he looked like the 2-year-old, she wrote: "Same nose! He is a few weeks early so he’s litttttttle and makes the teeniest noises. We are in love."
While the model has posted several lighthearted tweets about the new arrival, the same cannot be said for her husband, who confirmed the birth of his second child in an emotional tweet that lashed out at President Donald Trump.
The singer attacked the president for his alleged comments about members of the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha - better known as MS-13.
Speaking at a White House roundtable discussing sanctuary cities on Wednesday, Trump at first seemingly referred to undocumented immigrants as "animals", when he stated: "We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in -- and we're stopping a lot of them -- but we're taking people out of the country. You wouldn't believe how bad these people are. These aren't people. These are animals. And we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before."
Afterwards, he insisted that his words were instead about MS-13 gang members. But John still wasn't happy, taking to Twitter to use his newborn son to make the point that the society we live in makes us who we are.
At the end of the day, you have to praise both Chrissy and John for not being shy and speaking out about the issues that are important to them. Congratulations to them on the birth of their baby boy!
