There are many benefits to having breast implants removed, from a reduction in health anxiety to the simple ease of having smaller breasts. But for Chrissy Teigen, who recently had hers removed, the benefits also include receiving hilarious cards from your kids.
A homemade card Teigen's daughter Luna made for her post-surgery had Teigen in stitches, and her gazillions of social media followers are absolutely loving it too.
Teigen first discussed her decision to remove her implants in an Instagram post back in May, in which she explained that she was doing so mainly for reasons of comfort.
"I'm getting my boobs out! They've been great to me for many years but I'm just over it. I'd like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort!"
But an unexpected benefit of implant removal, beyond the ease of belly-sleeping or dress-zipping, arrived the morning after her surgery, when her and husband John Legend's four-year-old daughter, Luna Simone Stephens, left her this hilarious note.
The note, written in Luna's adorable little-kid penmanship, reads:
"Have fun pulling your boobies out. Love Luna."
It also came with a note that addressed Teigen's breasts directly, which succinctly read: "BYE BOOBIES."
Seems like Luna might have inherited her mother's beloved sense of humor.
Teigen first got breast augmentation about 14 years ago at the age of 20, to help with swimsuit modeling shoots. But nursing Luna and her and Legend's other child, two-year-old Miles Theodore Stephens (both children have their father John Legend's birth surname), altered her body in ways that made getting the implants removed make more sense.
She recounted in her trademark unfiltered way to Glamour earlier this year:
"But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed."
It's that no-holds-barred wit that has made Teigen such a social media icon, and her hordes of followers were definitely feeling the funny in this after-surgery post.
Luna's comedic stylings seem to have actual medical benefits too—in her Instagram caption, Teigen reported that Luna's note helped her forget that she was "so so so so sore" for about 30 seconds. The power of the written word!
