Chrissy Teigen is keeping it very real about new mum life, giving fans a glimpse of her post-baby stretch marks.

The Sports Illustrated model is currently on vacation in Bali with husband John Legend and their two kids, Luna two, and two-month-old Miles.

Wearing only the bottom half of her bikini, the model showed off a close-up look at her thighs and lower back, saying, “I guess these just aren’t going to go away. This is my new body”.
