While many celebrities seem to have impressive, otherworldly and envy-inducing snapbacks after having babies, some take their time and don’t rush back to the pre-baby body right away. This seems to be the case with model, TV personality and social media spitfire Chrissy Teigen.
As is the case with many things, Teigen decided to share her post-baby body on social media and in a moment of transparency, made moms everywhere feel a bit more normal.

She acknowledges that while social media can be a place where everyone looks so perfect with the most amazing bodies ever, it can seem disconcerting at times.
Some people do have rolls and cellulite and stretch marks. In fact, many people have these perceived imperfections but that doesn’t make them any less worthy or beautiful.
This can be something that’s difficult to experience for anyone, but for someone who had an entire career based on their outward appearance and looks, it can be challenging.
This is why Teigen says she doesn’t really include what she’s doing under the framework of “body positivity” because she doesn’t feel she is there quite yet.
She admits she’s still “super insecure” but is happy she can perhaps make anyone else feel better about themselves by being so forthcoming and transparent.
Teigen gave birth to her second child, a boy named Miles, a little over two months ago.
Newborn baby Miles, joined Luna, 2, and Teigen’s husband John Legend as they currently enjoy their vacation in Bali.
Teigen is known for her self-deprecating humor and publically discussing many issues she’s had throughout her motherhood journey.
She was very upfront regarding her fertility struggles, as well as her postpartum depression hurdles.
Now with her second baby and her snapback taking a bit more time this time around, she’s taking fans alongside her process.
