Chrissy Teigen, model, cookbook author and queen of social media, often posts adorable photos of her family, which includes husband John Legend children Luna and Miles.

However, she has shared that not all the reactions are positive, revealing the photos that get her mom-shamed the most.

In an interview with Today Parents, she revealed that photos of her kids with food always get the most controversial comments. "Any time I post a picture of them holding ribs or eating sausage, I get a lot of criticism," she said.

"Vegans and vegetarians are mad and feel that we forcing meat upon them at a young age. They freak out."

Photos in the car always draw some mom-shaming, too.

"If they get a glimpse of the car seat there is a lot of buckle talk," she said. "Maybe for one half of a second, the strap slipped down."

She continued, "And TV is another big one. We have TV on a lot in my house. John and I work on television; we love watching television."

Teigen previously admitted that the mom-shaming affects her.

"It definitely gets to me," she said. "Some days it gets to me more than others."


Teigen also revealed how she felt when she became a mother for the second time.

"When Luna was a little baby, I would get so sad. I remember being bummed out because I felt like she didn’t love me as much as she loved John," she said.

"It was the dumbest silliest thing to worry about… Now, when Miles pulls away from me, I’m not taking it the same way. I know how strong Luna and my bond is, and I know Miles and I will be there too. You can’t take anything personally."

Teigen has always been candid and open about the struggles of motherhood and family life.

In a 2017 interview with Yahoo! Style, she shared that she has extra help around the house.

"My mom lives with us. I have hair and makeup people. I’m not getting up and doing all this by myself," she said.

"We have help. It’s important for people to know that… I have the utmost respect for mothers and single mothers who go to work and come home and make dinner."

Earlier this year, in an interview with Good Housekeeping Teigen also discussed why she posts photos of "real mom s--t".

"Every morning when I look at myself in the mirror, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, how did it get here? My baby was, like, four pounds and I gained, like, 60 pounds, and that seems off!’ … But, you know, I think everyone’s body is just really different," she explained.

"That’s why, my posts of real mom shit, and wearing the diaper, and having that mesh thing, and real postpartum business? I think as important as it is for people to see me do that, it’s also really important for me."
