Chrissy Teigen has women all over the world rejoicing with her latest photo!
The 31 year old model shared an up close and personal pic of her thighs on Twitter with the caption: “Whatevs”. The image has been praised by women who love the fact that Teigen makes no secret of the changes her body went through while pregnant.
The picture below has been shared more than 4500 times on Twitter with hundreds of comments of support for the mum of one.

She later tweeted: “When I drink wine I say “whatevs,” and sober Chrissy doesn’t like it.” Some of the comments from her fans included photos of their own stretch marks.
“You’re real as f**k,” one commenter exclaimed. “Thanks for reminding everyone that not everyone is 100% flawless (even tho you are and stuff).”
“Thank you so much for this. OMG, I grew up hating my body because of my stretch marks,” another one of her followers wrote. “Never had representation of women with visible stretch marks.”
While another said, “You are now forever my hero. I love you for being real. Thank you.”
Following the overwhelming amount of support that her tweet received, Tiegen added, “I do not post stretchies for the praise. I post it because the wine also I like the pattern and they’re so soft.”
Tiegen is no stranger to sharing pics of her body- stretch marks and all! In a Snapchat video shared last August, she joked that her “thighs have tributaries.”
In April 2015, she also shared an image of herself sitting cross-legged to proudly display the marks on her thighs. “Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week,” she captioned the photo. “Stretchies say hi!”
Tiegen has become something of a role model for women with her ‘could care less’ attitude. The model definitely receives her fair share of criticism (remember the Vag cleavage dress) but she has learnt how to let those comments bounce off her- especially after becoming a mum to daughter Luna.
“Like, anything that you got frustrated over about before, nothing really matters anymore. And I think you just let things go a little more. It is hard when it turns to people are grading you on your personal decisions,” Teigen added. “You just realize you’ll never make everyone happy. … I’m learning to let things roll off my back a bit easier. I have more important things going on now.”
We love you Chrissy! Don’t ever change!
