Chrissy Teigen shares adorable image from bathtub outing with three-month-old daughter Esti … and sends message of body positivity
Chrissy Teigen on Sunday was seen in a social media shot relaxing in a bathtub with her three-month-old daughter Esti Maxine.
In the picture, the model/cookbook author, 37, who is also mother to daughter Luna, seven, and son Miles, four, with husband John Legend, 44, sat naked in the tub while holding up the adorable tot.
She pointed out things she perceives to be physical flaws, but said she moved forward with posting the photo to capture the magic of her infant, who she welcomed January 13 with the All of Me artist.
‘A boob that somehow hangs all along my side and deep purple lifetime scars, but you are too perfect to worry about any of it!’ Teigen captioned the shot to more than 41.5 million Instagram followers.
Teigen also took to Instagram Stories with a shot of the toddler relaxing in a onesie while putting her hand in her mouth. She captioned the image: ‘Baby girl discovers fingers.’

Teigen was lauded for her body positive remarks in the comment thread by a number of her followers, including actress Keegan Connor Tracy, who said, ‘Thank you for being brave (though it shouldn’t be brave) enough to post suck real photos.
She continued: ‘I think there’s a dysmorphia that is happening because everything is so filtered and contrived. This is just what people look like when we take down the veil.
‘There is beauty in real. And in knowing that we sacrifice to make these beautiful little people. Our bodies are meant to be lived in!’
Another user said: ‘Our changing bodies remind us of the life we created. It reminds us of all we have.’
Teigen spoke with People in March about her mindset in the wake of giving birth to her third child.
‘It’s easy confidence-wise, and honestly, a lot of the time, confidence is everything with it,’ Teigen said. ‘You’re just not so on edge and worried, and you’re also not worried about what other people have to say as much.’
She said that in welcoming her third child, she doesn’t ‘parenting advice from everybody like before,’ adding, ‘I do not accept being shamed about anything.’
Said Teigen: ‘A lot of people think that they’re experts on everything, but when you have three of something like that, you know … I mean, we’ve seen everything happen.
‘We’ve dealt with the stitches. We’ve had a toe almost come off. We’ve had broken bones. We’ve seen it all. It’s fine.’
