Why Chrissy Teigen is the Most Relatable Mom in Hollywood

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Northwestern chapter.

Let’s face it… we all wish we had a mom as cool as Chrissy Teigen. Not only is she hilarious on Twitter, but she is an extremely caring and attentive mother to her two children: Luna and newborn baby, Miles. Even with her busy schedule, she always finds time for family. Here are just a few of the reasons why Chrissy Teigen is one of the best moms in Hollywood:

She embraces her post-baby body

Just months after giving birth to her first child, Chrissy was already posing for Sports Illustrated. She has embraced her stretch marks, often showing them off in her Instagram posts. Chrissy has made it clear that she thinks moms should embrace their post-baby bodies no matter how insecure they might be.

She’s not afraid to fight mom-shamers

Chrissy has faced her fair share of mom-shamers, but she is never afraid to fight back. After giving birth to her first daughter, Luna, she was criticized for going out to dinner with her husband. Of course, she fought back saying that all moms deserve a break, especially right after giving birth. She recently made fun of the criticism by mocking husband John Legend for going to the BillboardMmusic Awards right after their son, Miles, was born.

She is open about her struggles

After giving birth to her first daughter, Chrissy dealt with postpartum depression, but she wasn’t ashamed to talk about how she felt. In an article she wrote for Glamour she said: “Just know that there’s a light on the other side. When I was in the midst of everything, I could never imagine myself on the other side of it. Now, I’m able to look at September, October, November, December and shake my head at how dark and crazy of a period it was.”

She still needs her own mom

Chrissy’s mom lives with her and often serves as a nanny to her kids. Even though she is a mom herself, she still needs her own mother to help along the way. Chrissy isn’t afraid to let people know she seeks help from the one person who taught her everything about being a mom.

She doesn’t try to be perfect

Chrissy does not try to be the perfect celebrity mom. Yes, she’s famous, yes, she’s married to John Legend and yes, her kids are absolutely adorable, but at the end of the day, Chrissy Teigen is a mom just like anyone else.
