Chrissy Teigen Hits Back At Trolls After 'Breastfeeding' Picture Receives Major Backlash

Anyone who follows Chrissy Teigen on Instagram - or her husband John Legend, for that matter - will know that family life over at their gaff looks like a pretty good deal.

Not only are they often seen cooking up a storm in the kitchen, Teigen also seems like she makes a hilarious mother - and not in a Mean Girls 'I'm a cool mom!' way, but in a 'I don't really give a crap what you lot think, I'm just here to have fun with my kids and husband' way.

Yesterday she shared a photo on Instagram of her breastfeeding the latest addition to the clan, Miles, along with a bit of a stage invader - her daughter's doll.

She captioned the photo: "Luna making me feed her babydoll so I guess I have twins now."

Turns out some people were fooled by what they saw, with one person commenting: "Thank goodness that's a doll! I thought you did have twins and one of the heads was incredibly small."

Another said: "For a minute I thought that was two real babies! Lol!"

Someone else wrote: "Lmaooo I didn't read the caption at first and I was trying to figure out when you got a third child."

For some bizarre reason, the post also attracted some haters... But that didn't bother Teigen, who hit back by replying to a post (that looks like it's since been deleted) by saying the person had 'weird titty issues'.

Not everyone was as offended, thankfully, with many others writing to complement Teigen on her parenting, and for normalising breastfeeding - especially around her kids.

One Instagram user wrote: "I love this picture it shows so much depth into your lovely family and your teaching both your little ones to be absolutely fine with the human body and what it does. You show so much of what really goes on in your life and it's so refreshing."

Another commented: "It is a beautiful thing you're doing! Also showing your daughter what a normal natural thing to do will inspire her to do the same one day."

Someone else referred to her as 'such a good mom, while another thanked her for 'normalizing breastfeeding'.

"This is parenting at its absolute best," another added.

It's not the first time Teigen has helped normalise breastfeeding through social media, either. Last month, her husband John Legend shared a photo of his wife pumping breast milk in the car while enjoying date night, writing: "I know it's Father's Day and all but my wife is pretty awesome. She's taking me to dinner but still on mommy duty."
