Jan. 19 (UPI) -- New mom Chrissy Teigen is celebrating her stretch marks once again.

The 31-year-old model shared a new photo of her stretch marks Wednesday on Twitter after welcoming daughter Luna with husband John Legend.

"Whatevs," she captioned a picture of her thigh for her 3.44 million followers. "When I drink wine I say 'whatevs' and sober Chrissy doesn't like it."

Social media users voiced their support for Teigen in the comments, with one person writing, "this (and your wit) is why you are my favorite." The star followed up the next morning, however, by saying she wasn't seeking acclaim.

"I do not post stretchies for the praise. I post it because the wine also I like the pattern and they're so soft," she tweeted.

Teigen previously posted snapshots of her stretch marks in April 2015 and August 2016. She explained in an interview with The Meredith Vieira Show in 2015 that she thinks 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 said. "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 elaborated. "Nobody can compare to that when you're fixing yourself so much. It's so unfair."

Teigen gave birth to Luna in April after announcing her pregnancy in October 2015. The model said in the January issue of Elle Australia that she sees her body as more "sexual" since having a baby.
