It’s no secret that we love Chrissy Teigen. Yet, lately, we’ve realized that we especially love her because she doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to motherhood. Rather than letting us all believe that all’s perfect in her world, Chrissy isn’t afraid to be honest about what it’s really like to be a mom as she continues to embrace who she is as both a human being and a mother. Here are a few of our favorite examples:
