Chrissy Teigen may be a 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit' cover model, but guess what?! She also has stretch marks!
The gorgeous brunette posted a picture of herself sitting cross-legged with the caption, "Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!" The image resonated with her nearly two million followers, who were inspired by her candidness.

"Seriously this is awesome @chrissyteigen...I've had stretch marks since I was 12 years old at 5'9...So important for young girls and now 29 year olds to see," one commenter wrote, while another said, "Wow thank you for this, you have boosted my self-esteem. Love you @chrissyteigen."
The stunner, who is married to Grammy winner John Legend, has been open about her past body image struggles, bashing Forever 21 in 2014 after she was allegedly fired by the brand for being too "fat."

Chrissy told 'DuJour' magazine last year, "They booked me directly when I was much younger and I showed up on set, they asked me if they could take a photo.
"And they shot that photo off to my agency who then calls me as I'm sitting in the makeup chair and they say, 'You need to leave right now, they just said you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken,'” she recalled.
Well, she certainly showed them!
