Chrissy Teigen Says What We’re All Thinking About Stretch Marks

Chrissy Teigen has never been one to sugarcoat the truth. Whether that means sharing her steadfast love of fast food, admitting her failed attempt at a vegan diet, or starting an epic Twitter battle—she's done it all (and hilariously, I might add).

The most recent blunt social media post from the cookbook author, who loves a good sheet-pan recipe, features stretch marks. The new mom of two (Teigen recently gave birth to a son, Miles) shared an emoji-laden Instagram Story of her skin blemishes, communicating that they're a non-issue.

This is hardly the first time Teigen has proudly shown off her "stretchies" on social media. After the supermodel gave birth to daughter Luna in early 2017, she took to Twitter to share a close-up of her inner thigh, which featured her stretch marks in all of their unedited glory. She paired the image with the caption, "Whatevs," and the internet rightfully applauded her for showing off her unfiltered self, ultimately retweeting the post over 150,000 times.

Sure, she's a super-famous celebrity who's married to another super-famous celeb—but in this instance, considering that an estimated 80 percent of people have stretch marks, this makes her downright normal. Never change, Chrissy.
