Chrissy Teigen has opened up about how she is finding motherhood so far. The Lip-Synch Battle host gave birth to her first child, Luna Simone, in April.

The 30-year-old spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her experiences as a new parent, saying: "It's been really exciting and fun, and every day is so different, and seeing all her little changes is so cute."

"Her eyes have uncrossed a little bit, and, like, now, rather than looking right through you, she looks at you, which is really nice. But it's the little smiles that get you.

"There is no feeling like that first little smile, your first Mother's Day, which was so beautiful and sweet to me. The entire day my eyes were on the verge of tears because I was so happy."

The happy new mum and her husband John Legend have been sharing their experiences as new parents on social media with adorable snaps of their baby girl.

In one of her most recent Snapchats, Chrissy melted hearts with a photo of John holding little Luna to his chest while the pair of them napped together on a flight, while John posted a photo of Luna's 'burp face' earlier this week as the baby girl stared at the camera over her mum's shoulder.

The couple have also taken to Twitter to speak about the downsides of new parenthood, with Chrissy jokily tweeting: "no one told me I would be coming home in diapers too," following Luna's birth.

Meanwhile John has spoken out about the criticisms the couple had been facing for going out to dinner together a couple of weeks after Luna's birth. He wrote: "Funny there's no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn't have to take it all. We'll split it."
