Chrissy Teigen enchanted the Internet when she showed her stretch marks three years ago – or what she calls her "stretchies" in social media. And now – three years and two babies later – she still does not understand why people pretend they do not exist.

"Everyone gets them out. It's crazy, said Teigen, 33, Elle U.K. for her January issue. "And I do not want anyone to feel like he's the only one [with stretch marks]."
The bestselling cookbook author said she noted that stretch marks had nothing to fear during her modeling days.
"I was at a Victoria's Secret shoot and it was a big turning point for me to see those women with scars and stretch marks and bruises," she said. "Who says it's even a mistake? "
Teigen said it was the influencers -" those fake Instagram people "- that triggered the body hatred.
" People get FOMO or they feel bad body, and I understand, "she said. "When I feel bad, when I see certain things, what about the girl who has no connection to this industry? That saddens me, because that's not how it is.
As for the body of doughs, the main person she intimidates is actually her husband, John Legend. In recent months, she has had to lay down some basic rules after giving birth to her second child, son Miles, in May.
"He can not exercise while I'm awake because I'm going to stop him," she joked, "I'm just bitter. If your husband gets fit while you have your offspring body, I can say, "F … you take a day off!" "
But Teigen said she was more than happy to eat with Miles during her pregnancy
"I loved being pregnant. I think it was mostly the dining binge, "she said. "John made this sandwich and left it for me at midnight. I would literally just pack it at night and eat in the dark. Miles was about 4.5 pounds. and I won 60 pounds. I had a good time! (Related: This mother wrote a letter to herself a year after giving birth)
