Chrissy Teigen shows the unglamorous side of post-baby life

Celebrity moms are just like us — postpartum underwear and all!

Just three days after giving birth to her second child, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram to post a photo of the reality of post-baby life.

In her Instagram post, the model poses topless while breastfeeding her new son, Miles.


Dressed in postpartum mesh underwear, holding her newborn son and holding a pear, Teigen hints at Ali Wong’s latest Netflix special “Hard Knock Wife,” in which the comedian discusses the postpartum underwear — the same ones that Teigen is pictured wearing.

Tagging #AsianPearUnderwear, the model hints that the cushioned wrapping an asian pear comes in is similar to the underwear new moms are given after birth. With more than 1.9 million likes and 23,000 comments, Teigen hit a chord with her followers.

“I love that you don’t sugarcoat things. You’re so real with your audience, and it is really refreshing. Love your personality,” wrote one follower.

“You are straight up my idol. Thank you for showing what motherhood is REALLY like without any reservations,” added another.

While the model may have been at home with their children, her husband, John Legend, was performing at the Billboard Music Awards. In her usual joking tone, Teigen called out Legend for going back to work so soon after the birth of their son.



 

The performer responded less than an hour after his performance saying he was on the tarmac waiting for his flight back to L.A.
