Chrissy Teigen is one of our favourite celebrity mums and one of the reasons is because she has no time for bullshit. In fact the model is so apt in dealing with online trolls that she has the ability to shut them down before they even rear their ugly heads.
Let me explain. Teigen, 31, recently posted a gorgeous video of 7 month old daughter Luna on Instagram waving to the camera to her dad John Legend who is currently in Europe.
The video shows Luna dressed in the cutest onesie adorably saying hi to the camera. What else is visible is the eczema on her little cheeks.
Because of Teigen’s previous experience with unwanted comments online, the mum of one posted the following caption with the video: “Yes, she has rosy eczema cheeks, yes we are taking care of it, no it’s not a gluten allergy, no it’s not our makeup, no it’s not from our perfume, yes she’s just a baby.”
How sad that a mum has to explain why her baby has eczema! All I can say is thank God there was no social media when my little ones were babies. I wouldn’t have been as eloquent and diplomatic and Teigen was.
Teigen’s frank approach sparked hundreds of comments from other mothers dealing with something similar.
“My son has the same thing,” one commenter wrote.
“We use Aquaphor Healing Ointment. It works for him, worth a try. Love your honest mom perspective.”
Great work Chrissy! Love your work!
