If Chrissy Teigen didn't already top the list of celebrity moms you'd love to hang with (see also Mila Kunis), she does now.
From her fertility struggles with hubby John Legend and throughout her pregnancy, Teigen has been the best kind of open book.
Four months into her role as a new mom, she has already braved the wrath of the masses on countless occasions - whether it's admitting she chose the sex of her embryo ("Let's put in a girl!") or deigning to go out on a date night straight after giving birth to daughter Luna.
Teigen doesn't shy away from sharing the ups and downs of motherhood, reacting to inevitable criticism with grace and a generous dollop of humour.
The 30-year-old model and Lip Sync Battle host shows no sign of holding back. She recently shared a Snapchat close-up shot of her post-pregnancy thighs, with the caption: "lol my thighs have tributaries."
If anyone feels the pressure to "bounce back" into shape, it would be a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model like Teigen. And she has. Still, it's refreshing to see a model being frank about things like stretch marks and dimpled thighs. It's up there with this model's photo.
No one is immune.
Having said that, many of us would kill for legs like Teigen's. I don't think I ever pulled off jean cutoffs that short, even in my pre-kid 20s!
So mamas, save that photo to your phone so you can call up at the touch of a button the next time you have one of those days when you want to burn all your clothes and cover all the mirrors.
We heart you, Chrissy T! Keep keeping it real.

Health Canada has recalled Instep, Instep Safari and Schwinn Grand Safari single and double jogging strollers with the following model numbers (see label on back of stroller seat):
Model | Model Number
The quick-release front wheel may detach, posing crash and fall hazards.
While neither Dorel Juvenile Canada nor Health Canada has received any reports of incidents or injuries, 215 injuries were reported in the United States, some of which resulted in "head injuries, sprains, lacerations, bumps, bruises, and abrasions."
Customers are advised to immediately stop using the affected strollers and contact Pacific Cycle to request a free repair kit. The kit includes a mechanism to secure the front wheel using a screw on/off method that replaces the original quick release lever method. The strollers should not be returned to the place of purchase.
To obtain a free repair kit, customers may contact Pacific Cycle by phone at 1-877-564-2261 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST or via email.
From January 2010 to April 2016, approximately 12,360 strollers were sold in Canada.
Just imagine your 17 year-old got a message like this from a complete stranger online. Filmmaker Kevin Smith did, and instead of reaching through the screen and virtually strangling the culprit, he took the high road by penning this philosophical message to her haters. And I can't love his words enough.
Trolling is getting worse by the minute, and you don't even need to be a celebrity's kid or an Olympian athlete to find yourself the subject of random online abuse.
It seems crazy that people should get death threats for making bad movies. Leslie Jones, Daisy Ridley... Now Smith's daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, is included in that list for starring in Yoga Hosers.
Newsflash: bad movies will always exist. How is that a crime against humanity? If you want to hate on anyone, go hate on the big production studios for only funding derivative, unimaginative tripe. Or - as Smith suggests - go make something better yourself.
"The best revenge is living insanely well - so if you wanna get back at a 17 year old girl for the grievous crime of enjoying her life, the best way to do it is to succeed in your OWN existence. Show the world WHY we should be paying attention to you instead of anyone else. Because randomly attacking others merely communicates how creatively and emotionally bankrupt you are. You think you have something to offer the world but others are getting all the attention? Don't b--ch or punish the world: just create. Create something nobody's ever seen before and there is a good chance the world will notice you."
The worst part is, so much of the vitriol online is directed at women. Sometimes it's men attacking women; sometimes it's women attacking women. No matter, it's still misogyny. I truly wonder if Kevin Smith himself has received death threats for his slew of dude movies, many of which were cinematic abominations. Doubtful.
If you want to say you didn't like a book or a movie or any "product," go for it. Whatever. That's called freedom of speech, and I can get behind that. It's the first rule of thumb you learn when you take any creative writing class. You can dissect the art all you want, but not the artist. When you attack or threaten the person, that becomes abuse and I see no justification under the sun for that shit.
"Attacking teen girls on the Internet is the saddest form of masturbation that exists and requires no discernible skill or talent," wrote Smith. "You want attention? Don't make yourself mad, make something original and fun. Because if you're not being useful in this world you're being useless. Don't be useless: go make stuff that makes people happy!"
Now, go forth, people, and be useful.
