Chrissy Teigen Doesn’t Have Time for the Mommy-Shaming Haters
Seriously, let her live.
Chrissy Teigen has endured her fair share of “mommy-shaming” online, but she’s not letting it get her down or influence her life choices.
The supermodel and new mother to baby Luna Simone, who she and John Legend welcomed on April 14, sat down with Michael Strahan on his first day on the job at Good Morning America this morning (May 17).
She opened up about motherhood, and how a couple of weeks ago she was criticized for going out to dinner with Legend.
“I used to read mommy blogs like crazy so I knew mommy shaming was a thing but I didn’t think it would come from going to dinner. We were gone for an hour. We had a good meal together.”
She and the “Ordinary People” singer had been photographed going out just over a week after Luna’s birth, sparking criticism from people who thought it was too early for her to be leaving her baby at home.
“We needed a break,” Teigen commented. “We needed to enjoy each other’s company and be out,” adding that she thinks a “happy mommy, happy daddy” will result in a “happy baby.”
John, the perfect husband and DILF that he is, took to Twitter last week to call out the shamers for not also “daddy-shaming.”
Funny there’s no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.

On John being a perfect father, the Cravings author joked to Strahan, “I don’t even want to say [how he helps with diaper changes, et cetera] because everyone already thinks John is so perfect, so I love to kind of twist it and make sure people know that nobody is perfect, but he’s been really great.”
