Chrissy received praise from fans after tweeting the unfiltered photo, with many thanking her for sharing.

"Thanks for reminding everyone that not everyone is 100% flawless (even tho you are and stuff)," one tweeted. Another fan commented: "You are now forever my hero. I love you for being real. Thank you."


It is not the first time that Chrissy has shared a photo of her stretch marks. The mum-of-one previously explained her decision to show her imperfections, admitting she felt we have forgotten "what normal people look like now".

The model welcomed her daughter Luna in 2016

Speaking on The Meredith Vieira Show in 2015, Chrissy said: "I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn't feel like doing it anymore—and I'm never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now."

Chrissy continued: "I mean, people are nip-tucking [their photos]. It's gotten to the point where they're not smoothing their skin anymore, they are actually changing the shape of their body and everybody else. Nobody can compare to that when you're fixing yourself so much."

The model, who is married to John Legend, has also previously admitted to fans that she was suffering from skin breakouts following the birth of her daughter.

Chrissy took to Snapchat to show her followers the effects that pregnancy had on her skin, posting a striking selfie in which she chose to go completely make-up free. "Goodbye pregnancy glow. Hi itchy red spots," she captioned the close-up snap, as she jokingly pouted for the camera.
