If you’re one of Chrissy Teigen‘s 17 million Instagram followers, you know that she isn’t afraid to show her #real self on social media. From showing off her lopsided boobs from breastfeeding to laughing off her Snapchat nip slip, the 32-year-old model never shies away from keeping it real with her followers, especially when it comes to her body. So when the recent mom of two started forming post-pregnancy stretch marks two weeks after giving birth, she had to put it on her Instagram story—crying emoji and all.
On Tuesday, the “Lip Sync Battle” cohost—who recently gave birth to her second child, a son named Miles Theodore, with her husband, John Legend—took to her Instagram story to announce that, after months of expensive creams and skin-care products, she couldn’t avoided dreaded post-pregnancy stretch marks on her stomach.
The short video showed several patches of stretch marks on Teigen’s body, as the model lamented over her hips. “Noooooooo. I thought I did such a good job with my creams. My hips!” Teigen said in the video, adding a crying-face emoji for good measure.
Though we’re sure that Teigen’s disappointment over her stretch marks is real (as it is for most people), we’re sure, knowing her, that she’s semi-joking over the seriousness of the situation. Judging from her tone, we’re assuming that Teigen knows that stretch marks aren’t the end of the world. (In fact, she’s shown off the ones on her thighs on several occasions.)
And though we all wish we could be stretch-marks-free, it’s refreshing to know that even a celebrity like Teigen doesn’t have a “perfect” body.
