Chrissy Teigen shared a video of her post-baby stretch marks on Instagram

Take a gander through any of Chrissy Teigen's social media accounts and you'll gather that she is completely blissed out on oxytocin. The model, co-host of Lip-Sync Battle, and veritable keyboard warrior, gave birth to her second child, Miles Theodore Stephens, last month.

Chrissy announced the news on Twitter, writing "Somebody's herrrrrrre!" along with a series of baby bottle emojis. She then took to Instagram the following week to reveal the newborn's name. "Hello, world! This is Miles Theodore Stephens," Teigen wrote. "We are drowning in his little peeps and nuzzles. Our household feels overwhelmed with love. Thank you for all your well wishes!"

But as well as posting precious pictures of Miles with his big sister Luna, the 32-year-old has been keeping it real, showing that motherhood, even for celebs, isn't all that glamorous. In a recent post, Teigen let us get all up-close-and-personal with her postpartum body - in particular - her stretch marks.

The 32-year-old posted a video clip to her Instagram story last night, which sees her pan over her hips, showcasing her stretch marks.

"No! I thought I did such a good job with my creams! My hips!" Teigen lamented in the video, proving that even models - who are winners of the genetic lottery, and have access to the best lotions and potions on the market - aren't immune to getting the dreaded postpartum stretch-marks.

This isn't the first time that Teigen has shared unfiltered footage of the realities of motherhood, and addressed the toll that pregnancy takes on women's bodies. Last week, she posted an image of her breastfeeding Miles - standing in the middle of her kitchen - shirtless, and wearing mesh, high-rise hospital underwear.

And she's also been frank about her stretch-marks before. Last year, Teigen took to Twitter to share an up-close photo of the dimpled skin on her upper thigh.

"Whatevs," she captioned the shot of her stretch-marks, and yeah, we couldn't agree more.

But let's skip back to baby Miles. John Legend recently revealed the significance behind his son's name at the Billboard Music Awards, which was the couple's first public outing since the birth of their second child.

Revealing that he and Teigen named him after the iconic jazz musician, Miles Davis, Legend said: "We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens; every name we give to our kids I think will have a little bit of musical history to it. So Miles is, of course, is the same name as the great Miles Davis."

Chrissy and John have been anxious to grow their family for some time now. Last year, the couple chose to undergo a frozen embryo transfer in hopes of becoming pregnant again. And back in January of 2017, before she even got pregnant with Miles, Teigen tweeted about the sex of the embryo they would be using for their second child.

"Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah," the cookbook author wrote on Twitter.

Well good on Chrissy for being so candid about the realities of pregnancy and postpartum life!
