LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Chrissy Teigen encouraged fans to embrace their imperfections by posting a new photo of her stretch marks Tuesday.
The 30-year-old model shared an up-close glimpse of her stretch marks on Snapchat four months after welcoming daughter Luna with husband John Legend.
"lol my thighs have tributaries," she captioned the picture with a crying face emoji.
Teigen previously made headlines for posting a photo of her stretch marks in April 2015. She explained at the time that she shared the picture because she believes excessive photo editing has set unhealthy body standards.
"I'm never [editing social media posts] again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now," the star told Meredith Vieira. "The standard is so ridiculous."
"It's gotten to the point where they're not smoothing their skin anymore, they're actually changing the shape of their body," she said. "Nobody can compare to that when you're fixing yourself so much. It's so unfair."
Teigen married Legend in Como, Italy, in 2013, and welcomed Luna in April. She told E! News in July she isn't rushing to shed her baby weight, saying, "John actually loves the new pieces!"
"You just have to realize you have to give yourself time and understand that you push out a baby, and it took this long to put on the weight, and it's not going to peel right off, and that's okay," she said.
