Mom-Shamers Are Criticizing Chrissy Teigen for Sharing a Bath Time Photo of Herself & Luna

No matter what Chrissy Teigen—or any celeb mom, for that matter—shares on social media, she's bound to deal with a bevy of negative remarks. Take for example what happened to Little People, Big World star Audrey Roloff last week when mom-shamers caught wind of a beautiful photo that happened to show her L.O.'s bare tush. Yep, even the most innocent photo is somehow bound to set off tongue-clucking, and yesterday, Wednesday, May 15, Chrissy Teigen was the target du jour.

The soon-to-be mom of two, who is expecting a son with husband John Legend this summer, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself in the bathtub with her eldest, Luna, who just turned 2 last month. The sweet photo was simply captioned, "a splash with toons."

Critics in the comments got all up on the model and cookbook author for posting the photo. One commenter wrote, "Bathtub pics of a minor. Classless," while another said, "This is beautiful and all, but there are some intimate photos you should keep in your family circle." A third wrote, "This is a very private moment to share with the world." 

On the other hand, supportive followers cheered the celeb mom on. One commenter said, "I LOVE YOU @chrissyteigen You are a phenomenal woman, mother and human being. Amen for a momma like you that loves her baby so much, she is willing to take her precious time to spend it sitting in the bathtub with her baby." Another said, "I honestly just see beauty in this picture. Mama and daughter having a fun time, before baby brother comes."

Really, how sweet it is to see Chrissy bonding with her baby girl, period, the end. If she felt comfortable sharing this moment with her social media followers, more power to her. Let's just hope she pays no mind to this eyeroll-inducing tongue wagging.
