Chrissy Teigen has always been adored for her chronic oversharing, but since welcoming her three kids with husband John Legend — Esti Maxine, 13-weeks-old; son Miles Theodore, 4; and daughter Luna Simone, 7 — the model and cookbook author has made a concerted effort to remain vulnerable and honest about her postpartum experience.

The relatable mum of three has kept the good, bad, and ugly of her postpartum life brutally real on social media. She's shared glamour shots in mesh underwear and posted tweets about her — ahem — bumhole. And while she's certifiably hilarious, she's also shared some of the more painful moments that can happen in the fourth trimester.

In 2016, after giving birth to her daughter Luna, the model opened up about living with postpartum depression (PPD). "I look around every day and I don't know how people do it," she wrote in an essay for Glamour in 2017. "I've never had more respect for mothers, especially mothers with postpartum depression. I'm speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody and I don't want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone."

Fast forward to March 2023, Teigen spoke with People about finding a new confidence in herself after welcoming her third baby. "It's easy confidence-wise, and honestly, a lot of the time, confidence is everything with it," said Teigen of her growing family. "You're just not so on edge and worried, and you're also not worried about what other people have to say as much."

Now, she's back online sharing her latest "soggy" adventures with her newborn daughter. Ahead, check out all the times she reminded us to give ourselves grace, from embracing her postpartum body to poking fun at all of the ways motherhood can change a person.
