Chrissy Teigen has never been shy about posting her truth.

On Monday, July 30, Teigen took to Twitter to get real about body confidence.

Sharing a video of herself, Teigen honed in on her stretch marks, letting viewers know that "this is my new body."


It may be hard to imagine that someone like Teigen, a Sports Illustrated cover model, would ever not be happy with her body — especially considering how often she dispenses justice to body-shaming trolls. But after having two kids, she's dealing with the fact that her body has changed. That's hard, but she's embracing it with self-love.

Just like the rest of us, Teigen's not immune to the feelings of inadequacy seeing "killer bodies" on social media induces.

That's why — instead of posting anything filtered or photoshopped — Teigen reminded her fans that "regular ol' bodies" are beautiful.

Accepting our own bodies — whatever shape, size, color, stretch marks, or no stretch marks — is an important part of self-love.

Feeling good in your skin is a journey we're all on — even Chrissy Teigen.
