Chrissy Teigen Is the Hilarious Friend We Want & the Cool Mom We Aspire to Be

Chrissy Teigen, Moms Who Inspire

A woman, a model, a wife, a foodie, and (as of April 14, 2016) a mother -- that's just a shortlist of descriptors for 30-year-old Utah native Christine Teigen. On her journey to motherhood, she also became -- and continues to be -- an inspiration to many other women. Needless to say, she's a damn legend.

Aside from the obvious -- her seemingly being the most down-to-earth, hilarious, food-loving celeb chick walking -- Teigen radiates a rare confidence, certainty, and overall body-positive attitude toward herself that is beyond admirable (if not enviable).

Since coming on the scene, she has continuously broken the stereotypical mold that the modeling industry (and Hollywood) has become notorious for -- and she's done so by merely staying true to herself. Teigen has always been transparent when it comes to her love of food (probably hard to hide when you have a cookbook, huh?) and her killer curves. 

Frankly, this is just one of the many attributes that will make her a fantastic mother as her daughter becomes older -- but by far one of the most important. And it's definitely a quality that landed her on CafeMom's "Moms Who Inspire" list.

Hello new thighs! You appeared out of nowhere but I am not mad at it!

It's no secret that body image and self-love are major components in raising a little girl -- especially in a world that sends mixed messages when it comes to body image. Being someone your child can look up to is so important, and it's a given that Chrissy will exceed little Luna's expectations as she looks to her mom as intently as the rest of the world does, following her every move.

And before Luna Simone Stephens even came into her world, in true "Chrissy" form, the model spoke openly and honestly about her struggles to become a mother. At one point, on an episode of FABLife, she shared that she and John would've had children five to six years prior if it hadn't been for their fertility struggle.

After trying for some time, Chrissy went on to announce her pregnancy and how she was admittedly "neurotic" -- seeing her doctor for two ultrasounds a week during the first four months of her pregnancy.  

Although she wasn't always vocal about her struggle, she truly became more vocal after she became pregnant -- revealing her thought process to Self and how the option of IVF restored her faith. Teigen confessed, "The big question was why this wasn't working for us when I was young and he was healthy." She added, "I thought, people get pregnant by accident all the time! How does this happen?"

Her fears, as authentic as ever, resonated with women everywhere who have shared a similar journey. 

And through it all she remained humble and was blessed with a healthy baby -- every bit as gorgeous as the people who made her.

All the while, that didn't stop Chrissy from putting trolls in their place as we saw time and time again. Anything else and that just wouldn't be the strong, funny, personable woman we love -- it wouldn't be Chrissy. 

Less than a month into the mom game and it seems that she's taken to motherhood quite well. She continues to lead a balanced life, despite the flack she received for having a dinner date not too long after bringing Luna home. 

Really, we can't wait to see what motherhood has in store for the new mom, whom we know will surely always be a mom who inspires.
