Chrissy Teigen Claps Back at Haters Who Think New Moms Can't Enjoy Date Night

 Chrissy Teigen steps out for the first time since giving birth, showing off her post baby body at The Nice Guy club with John Legend in West Hollywood, California on April 23, 2016.

Honey, in the words of Kenya Moore (y'all know she's a Housewife in Atlanta): "Don't come for me, unless I send for you." This is complete madness. Folks were truly in their feelings because new mom Chrissy Teigen went on a date with her husband John Legend days after giving birth. My only question is this: Why are you mad?


Are you mad because Chrissy delivered her baby girl Luna on April 14 and had the audacity to want to eat dinner in a restaurant with her man just nine days later? Or, are you really mad because mama is looking beat for the runway in a see-through shirt and leggings?

Who knows, maybe it's all of the above.

Chrissy's "fans" weren't having her date night ... at all. Many people had no problem questioning her parenting skills for being okay with wanting to leave her baby, and actually called her spotlight-hungry for "flaunting" her post-baby body for all to see.

(Feel free to insert your eye roll here.)

Well, it might've done folks some good to think about who they were going to talk smack about before pushing the send button. Mama Chrissy had a few words for her haters, and of course, she delivered the social media tea for us to sip.

Chrissy also had something for those talking about bloody and stinky vaginas (seriously, who does that?).

... And a little something for those trying to throw shade with backhanded comments.

Want to know how baby Luna's doing? Don't ask Chriss, she's obviously a bad parent -- right?!

Oh, Chrissy -- lol! You make me laugh, girl.

New moms need to know it's okay to take a little "me time." Trust me, you don't get a special badge of honor for sitting next to your baby's crib 24/7. You aren't a horrible parent if you want to enjoy a meal -- or some other outing -- to catch your breath.

Shoot, my mother had to drive up from Baltimore to New Jersey after I gave birth to my first son, just to get me out of the house. It's not that I didn't trust my mother to watch my kid (I mean, she did raise me); I just thought it wasn't okay to even consider such a thing. Now with my second child, my husband and I had no problems going out for dinner and letting my father-in-law watch our babies for an hour. (I was back in time to breastfeed.)

Let this mother live. Let all mothers live, without adding any damning judgments to what you think is or isn't kosher to do. Between late-night feedings, trying to get that whole nursing thing down, and endless diaper changes, I say enjoy everything on the menu.

Plus, if Chrissy wants to wear leather leggings a week and change after giving birth, who's it hurting? Mom looks great and, more importantly, she appears happy and healthy.

Hope you enjoyed your date.
