One of the most down-to-earth celeb mums out there is Chrissy Teigen.

The gorgeous model has graced the cover of Cosmo, Women's Health, Vogue Thailand and Sports Illustrated, and in her latest shoot for Elle Australia, she opens up about how being pregnant changed her attitude to her body.

Chrissy and her husband, singer John Legend, welcomed their first daughter Luna in April this year, and Chrissy has opened up on how being pregnant changed her view of her body.

“I think you just feel really feminine," she said.

"I always felt like a bit of a tomboy, and I never looked at my body as particularly sexual — I wasn’t a curvy girl.

"But to be able to see my body afterwards, and of course you get, like, hips. Finally, for the first time, I feel like I have a bit more of a womanly figure."

We think Chrissy's always looked great, but speaking candidly about her feelings on everything from her body to politics is her MO.

Earlier this year, she posted a picture on Snapchat of her stretch marks, writing "lol my thighs have tributaries".

Of course, stretch marks are absolutely normal and shouldn't make news, but Chrissy's openness shows she isn't afraid to prove that, beneath her glitzy lifestyle, she's just like the rest of us.
