NEW YORK, May 17 (UPI) -- Chrissy Teigen was taken aback by response to her recent post-baby outing.
The 30-year-old model discussed mom-shaming on Tuesday's episode of Good Morning America after facing backlash for a post-baby dinner date with husband John Legend in April.
"We needed a break. We needed to go enjoy each other's company and be out," Teigen explained. "We were gone for an hour. We had a good meal together. I think happy mommy, happy daddy, happy baby."
"I used to read mommy blogs like crazy so I knew mommy shaming was a thing, but I didn't think that it would come from going to dinner. That wasn't something that I thought would happen," she admitted. "It just kept going on and on."
Teigen came under fire when she and Legend were spotted at dinner nine days after welcoming daughter Luna. The couple are focused instead on enjoying their time as a family and celebrated Teigen's first Mother's Day on May 8.
"We're so happy," the model told Entertainment Tonight. "It's been really exciting and fun, and every day is so different, and seeing all of her little changes is so cute."
"There is no feeling like that first little smile, your first Mother's Day, which was so beautiful and sweet to me," she shared. "The entire day my eyes were on the verge of tears because I was so happy."
Legend had defended Teigen after the outing, tweeting, "Funny there's no dad-shaming." The 37-year-old singer last released Love in the Future in 2013, while Teigen co-hosts Spike TV series Lip Sync Battle.
