Chrissy Teigen rejects praise for stretch mark selfie

Chrissy Teigen is embracing everything about her post-baby body - especially her stretch marks!

While stories about supermodels daring to flaunt their "imperfections" inspire little more than an eye-roll from us mortals, we'll admit it is refreshing to receive the occasional reminder that stretch marks are a totally normal part of life.

Chrissy Teigen seems to get this, rejecting the praise she received for a recent stretch mark selfie, admitting she actually just "likes the pattern".

"I do not post stretchies [sic] for the praise. I post it because the wine," Chrissy said, admitting she was not exactly "sober" when she posted the photo.

"Also, I like the pattern and they're so soft."


The 31-year-old model's nonchalance towards her "stretchies" has nonetheless excited other women who too have embraced this part of their bodies.

"Stretch marks develop when tremendous growth happens in a short period of time," one Twitter user responded. "They're a source of pride, embrace them."

"Stretch marks are strength marks," another wrote.

Chrissy and her husband, John Legend, welcomed their first child, Luna, in April last year.
