Yep, Chrissy Teigen is still being as real as it gets after giving birth again.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend just welcomed their baby boy, Miles, into the world.

"This is Miles Theodore Stephens," Teigen captioned a photo posted on May 17, 2018. "We are drowning in his little peeps and nuzzles. Our household feels overwhelmed with love."

Don't let the adorable pic and delightful caption above fool you though: Teigen's still being as real as it gets when it comes to postpartum life.

Hours after Miles' Instagram debut, she posted a slightly less magical shot sporting post-birth underwear, giving a shout-out to comedian Ali Wong for cleverly pointing out the clothing item looks just like the material Korean pears are wrapped in at the grocery store.

On May 20, Teigen threw a (lighthearted) dig at Legend for attending an awards show while she was at home fulfilling her less glamorous mommy duties.

"Wow," she wrote from the couch, wrapped in a blanket with Miles in her arms. "Didn’t u just have a baby John [shake my head] go take care of it !!!!!! disgusting"

Then there was this tweet — an incredibly honest revelation about the birthing process. "I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you don't rip to your butthole," she confirmed.

(The replies to that one were particularly amazing. "My baby boy will be 25 in August and my butt still hurts," one follower chimed in.)

None of this should be surprising. Teigen's been dropping mommy candor since giving birth to her now 2-year-old, Luna.

Luna — like every little one — has had her rascal moments. And Teigen's been happy to share many of them with fans.

Because many parents have been there, done that.

But Teigen's relatable mom life has gone beyond the jokes and lighthearted digs at daddy. She's opened up about the more serious sides of parenthood as well.

Last year, Teigen penned a powerful essay in Glamour about her struggles with postpartum depression.

"How can I feel this way when everything is so great?" she wrote.

"When I wasn’t in the studio, I never left the house. I mean, never. Not even a tiptoe outside. I’d ask people who came inside why they were wet. Was it raining? How would I know — I had every shade closed. Most days were spent on the exact same spot on the couch and rarely would I muster up the energy to make it upstairs for bed. John would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row. I started keeping robes and comfy clothes in the pantry so I wouldn’t have to go upstairs when John went to work. There was a lot of spontaneous crying."

After being diagnosed with postpartum depression and anxiety, Teigen began taking an anti-depressant and opening up to family and friends about what she was going through.

"I remember being so exhausted but happy to know that we could finally get on the path of getting better," she wrote. "John had that same excitement."

Sure, many aspects of Teigen's life aren't ordinary or relatable. She's wealthy and a famous model, cookbook author, and TV personality. Her (well-deserved) career has afforded her many luxuries most of us will never benefit from. But that's why her parenting candor — both the funny anecdotes and her more sobering revelations — are all the more important.

If a star like Teigen's going through it, you know you're not alone.

Mom and blogger Mary Katherine Backstrom regularly shares snippets of life with her two children on her Facebook page. One particularly touching interaction with her daughter is melting hearts and blowing minds due to the three-year-old's wise words about forgiveness.

Even adults struggle with the concept of forgiveness. Entire books have been written about how and why to forgive those who have wronged us, but many still have a hard time getting it. Who would guess that a preschooler could encapsulate what forgiveness means in a handful of innocent words?

California has a housing crisis. Rent is so astronomical, one San Francisco company is offering bunk bedsfor $1,200 a month; Google even pledged$1 billion to help tackle the issue in the Bay Area. But the person who might fix it for good? Kanye West.

The music mogul first announced his plan to build low-income housing on Twitter late last year.

"We're starting a Yeezy architecture arm called Yeezy home. We're looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world better," West tweeted.

The U.S. women's soccer team won the Women's World Cup, but the victory is marred by the fact that the team is currently fighting for equal pay. In soccer, the game is won by scoring points, but the fight for equal pay isn't as clearly winnable and the playing field isn't as even.

We live in a world where winning the World Cup is easier than winning equal pay, but co-captain Megan Rapinoe says there's one easy way fans can support the team: Go see games.

Some people argue the men's team deserves to get paid more because they are more successful and earn more money for the United States Soccer Federation. Pay depends on merchandise and ticket sales, and in general, men's sporting events tend to draw a bigger crowd than women's sporting events. It's not about sex, many argue; it's about the fact that people just prefer to see men play.

You think you know someone pretty well when you spend years with them, but, as we've seen time and again, that's not always the case. And though many relationships don't get to a point where the producers of "Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry?" start calling every day just to chat, the reality is that sometimes partners will reveal shocking things even after you thought you'd been all shocked out.

That's the case for one woman whose Reddit thread has recently gone viral. The 25-year-old, who's been with her boyfriend for five years, took to a forum for relationship advice to ask if it was normal that her seemingly cool and loving boyfriend recently revealed women shouldn't have a fundamental right. (And no, it's not abortion — although there are a lot of "otherwise best ever boyfriends" out there who want to deny women the rights to bodily autonomy, too.)
