Despite Chrissy Teigen‘s crazy year, there are some things she never wants to forget.
The troubled star showed off her brand new tattoo hours after making her apologetic return to social media on Monday, June 15. Teigen proudly revealed that she permanently inked her daughter’s butterfly drawing on her forearm. She shared a black and white photo and explained her reasons for the forever memory.
“Luna drew this butterfly on me today and it seemed fitting to make permanent,” she captioned her post. “I wanted @winterstone(the tattoo artist) to move and center it, due to issues I also discuss in therapy, but in the end we decided to leave it right where she belonged. A little imperfect, a little messy, but hell she’s here to stay.”
Monday was a special day not only because of the long apology she issued but also because Luna graduated.
“Today our beautiful little pod celebrated their preschool graduation. I sobbed from beginning to end, breaking for laughter only when john’s much-anticipated-by-him commencement speech welcomed them to the workforce and listed the 5 p’s as pizza, peanut butter, petey, penny and parents. I sobbed because my god, what a year. But also, man. they’re SO young. Their eyes are gonna see so much. They’re going to experience pain, hurt, loss. But also love, success, unimaginable bonds with friends.”
Chrissy said watching her daughter grow meant so much more after the hard lessons she’s learned after the public backlash she’s experienced lately. “I thought about what I’ve learned just in the past few months and I feel a wealth of gratitude for life alone and those unimaginable bonds.”
She continued, “to the people that never let up with the texts, to my diamond painters, the ones who wanted to give me space, the girls who wiped the snot, and my fucking rock of a husband, my god I love you.
Earlier in the day, Chrissy returned to Instagram with another apology for being a hurtful Twitter troll. “I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you’ve done.’ Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past,” she wrote.
The cookbook author faced an intense amount of backlash after Courtney Stodden alleged that she received bullying messages that told her to kill herself when she was just 17-years-old. Fashion designer Michael Costello recently revealed that Teigen bullied him and caused him to have suicidal thoughts.
