No question about it, Chrissy Teigen has loads of confidence--and a sassy attitude that she's not afraid to put to good use. Refreshingly candid in the past about her struggles with IVF and postpartum depression, the model has once again refused to bite her tongue about another hot topic recently: online mommy-shamers.
You know the type of people we mean--those who post comments on the internet (anonymously or otherwise) criticizing a parent's choices, or offering unsolicited advice on the right way to do things. And mom-shamers aren't just lurking online, hiding their sharp words behind their keyboards. Women and men like this actually walk among us in real life, too, spreading negativity and making moms (and dads) feel bad how they're doing at one of the hardest jobs in the world.
Well, it seems Chrissy Teigen has had enough of it. The mother to 10-month-old Luna--her daughter with husband John Legend--hit back at critics who made the negative comments about her baby girl.
“Imagine being this miserable. We are fine, thanks,” Teigen, 31, tweeted on Friday, along with a screenshot of the critical comments.

Needless to say, Teigen wasn't about to take these strangers' rude words lying down. Her fiery response was really one for the books!
“Some people are just hell bent on being the f–king worst,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet.
Yikes! But really, it's no wonder Teigen had something to say. The dedicated mom is not one to put up with unwelcome comments from total strangers--or even with well-meaning comments from friends. Remember all the way back in 2015, when Teigen had made a public request to people not to bug their friends about when they're going to have a child? She had no trouble speaking about the issue because, in her view, there may be some fertility issues that the couple is not ready to discuss just yet.
"It comes from a good place but sometimes you never know what the person is going through. You're like, 'I'm trying.' What I really want to say is, 'I'm trying and I can't.' I wanted to talk about it for so long, it just didn't feel right,'" she said at the time.
We're so glad she stuck up for herself again this time--and put those negative mommy-shamers in their place. It's clear little Luna is in good hands--and has a strong, protective mama bear on her side!
