Let’s just ban the phrase “bouncing back” once and for all. Chrissy Teigen, who gave birth to her second child 10 weeks ago, posted a video of her stretch marks via Twitter on Monday, July 30. “I guess these aren’t going away,” mused the bikini-clad model. “This is my body.”

Teigen, 32, admitted in a follow-up tweet that she compares herself to other women on social media. “Instagram is crazy. I think it’s awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!!),” wrote the Lip Sync Battle cohost. “But I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ol’ bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing.”

She added: “Also I don’t really call this ‘body confidence’ because I”m not quite there yet. I’m still super insecure. I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves.”

Teigen has been helping to normalize stretch marks and cellulite since before she became a mom. Back in 2015, the star gave social media followers an up close and personal view of the “stretchies” on her thigh. A year later, she Snapchatted a similar image with the caption, “my thighs have tributaries.”

The Cravings: Hungry for More cookbook author and her husband, John Legend, are vacationing in Bali with their infant son Miles and daughter, Luna, 2. And the couple have been treating fans to plenty of pictures from their getaway. Apparently R&B singer Legend, 39, has been rocking out to music from his forthcoming Christmas album. “In tropical paradise. August,” wrote Teigen on Twitter Tuesday. “John excitedly listening to his Christmas album every day all day. He’s very excited for you guys to hear.”
