Chrissy Teigen Claps Back When Twitter Troll Tries to Tell Her How to Conceive
The candid star once again proves her sass is on point when it comes to strangers on the Internet judging her parenting choices.
Oh, how I love Chrissy Teigen! The gorgeous mama to baby Luna Simone is famous for her epic clap-backs on social media, whether it's shutting down the haters who think she's holding her daughter the wrong way, or shading the ones who dubbed her the worst mom ever for leaving her little one home with a sitter. No surprise, then, that she had the best response ever to a Twitter user who recently dared to criticize the "Lip Sync Battle" star's fertility plan.
Here's how it all went down: Teigen was strolling down the red carpet with hubby John Legend for the Producer's Guild Awards when a reporter from Entertainment Tonight asked her about her plans to have another baby. "Oh my God, a little boy is next for sure," Teigen responded.
So sweet! But Twitter, of course, exploded with the news, with users bashing the not-currently-preggers mama for attempting to choose the sex of her baby. But Teigen ain't got time for such nonsense.
"Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left," she tweeted. "A boy. So. Yeah."
Ooh burn! As if it that weren't enough, another tweeter named Linda then showed up to accuse Teigen—who used IVF to conceive Luna, and who has been very open about her fertility struggles—of not "giving it a minute to try naturally."
Girl, did you really just go there?
Teigen fired back with this:

Re-freaking-tweet! Please don't challenge—or even ask—a woman about her fertility plans, guys. You never know what she may be going through behind closed doors. We might be living in a world of oversharing and even oversharenting, but when it comes to asking such deeply personal questions, we should all really try to be a little more respectful of each other, dontcha think?
