Chrissy Teigen will be the first to admit that your body changes tremendously after pregnancy. She has been outspoken about the negative stereotype surrounding post-baby bodies and has a reputation for being the ultimate truth-teller when it comes to body positivity. Recently, she took to Twitter to post a quick reminder to embrace your so-called flaws no matter how difficult it may seem.

In the picture, Teigen proudly shows off her post baby stretch marks, captioning it with a simple, "Whatevs." The post has struck a chord with several of her followers who have commented by thanking her for her honesty.
"Thank you so much for this...I grew up hating my body because of my stretch marks and had no representation of women with visible stretch marks," one Twitter user wrote. "Thanks for reminding everyone that not everyone is 100 percent flawless," wrote another.
This isn't the first time Teigen has reminded us that she is human, just like us. Four months after having baby Luna, the model joked about her stretch marks on Snapchat saying: "lol my thighs have tributaries." Even before giving birth, she shared yet another non-photoshopped post of legs to Instagram. "Stretchies say hi!" she wrote alongside the image.
There is something to be said about celebrities being honest about embracing their imperfections. It's a great reminder to women and young girls that their bodies should be celebrated, flaws and all because things like stretch marks and cellulite are totally normal and natural.
Thank you, Chrissy Teigen, for gracing us with important and empowering reality checks. We really do love you for it.
