Back in August, model Chrissy Teigen announced that she and husband John Legend were expecting a baby.

Teigen shared on Instagram that the family was beyond excited, though she was still somewhat nervous after having a lifesaving medical abortion in 2020 when she was 20 weeks pregnant.

Earlier this month, she and Legend welcomed Esti Maxine Stephens to the family, joining sister Luna who is 6 and brother Miles who is 4.

She captioned the post:

"She's here! Esti Maxine Stephens - the house is bustling and our family could not be happier."
"Daddy sheds nightly tears of joy seeing Luna and Miles so full of love, and I am learning you still need diapers with a c section?!"
"We are in bliss. Thank you for all the love and well wishes - we feel it all! X"

Yesterday, Teigen made another post to Instagram, this one featuring the mom in heeled boots, a silk dress and a knit cardigan.

She shared:

"[On my way] to bandage together both my wound and 3.8 second clips of Beyonce performing in Dubai until I get a full HBO special."

What seemed to get the most attention, however, were the breast milk stains on her dress.

Fans praised Teigen for her honest post and for sharing realities of postpartum struggles.

She is absolutely precious.

Thank you, Chrissy, for normalizing the reality of postpartum struggles.
