Chrissy Teigen shared a daring naked photo to encourage people to be comfortable in their own skin.
The model, who has had a difficult year after the loss of her son Jack during pregnancy, posted a snap of herself standing naked in front of a bathroom mirror to hammer home a message about ‘loving yourself’ for Valentine’s Day.
In the photo the 35-year-old shared to her Instagram, which included an image of a sticking plaster, Chrissy uses one arm to cover her chest while taking the picture on her phone.
She added the caption: ‘Happy Valentine’s Day. Love yourself!! B***h has been throuuugh it.’
Chrissy, who is married to singer John Legend, has been trying to get back on her feet after losing her unborn son.
Jack died in September due to complications during her pregnancy, and she recently shared he would have been born at the start of this month had he survived.
‘My little jack would have been born this week so I’m a bit off,’ she wrote on Twitter.
‘I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it’s not phantom. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow…but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. Sigh.’
The Lip Sync Battle host feels that the pregnancy loss ‘saved’ her.
[Loss] can be a beautiful thing, it was a transformative thing for me and in a way he really saved me because I don’t think that I would’ve discovered therapy and sobriety and this path of feeling good about myself and feeling like a new person’, she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
She added: ‘Of course, you don’t ever imagine it happening to you, that was what the crazy part was for me, I was like, “I hear these stories about other people, this doesn’t happen to me.” So when it does, you’re just so shocked.’
The beloved star thanked fans for the support she had received as she said: ‘You really don’t know the meaning of the word “unimaginable” until something like that happens to you.’
Chrissy and John are also parents to daughter Luna, four, and two-year-old son Miles.
