This Celeb Dad Has a Poignant Message for Mommy-Shamers
Chrissy Teigen has always been open about her life, especially on social media. And since she’s become a mom, she's even been more forthcoming. Unfortunately, though, .
Chrissy, who gave birth to baby Luna (shown above) last month, has been criticized for everything from going out to dinner a week after giving birth (and doing it again a few weeks later) to daring to wear a crop top three weeks after having a baby. (Seriously, people?)

Naturally, she’s responded on social media with good humor:
But recently, she hinted that the backlash has gotten to her a little. After a commentor said Chrissy was going to get “roasted” for tweeting about spray tanning while pumping, she replied: “It happens for anything and everything. I have decided to stop worrying!”
Now, her husband John Legend has stepped up with a very poignant tweet:
Funny there's no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn't have to take it all. We'll split it.— John Legend (@johnlegend) May 11, 2019
The man makes a good point since, last we checked, baby Luna has two parents. Unfortunately, Chrissy’s situation isn’t rare—it’s just very public. New moms often get shamed for everything, while dads get a pat on the back for changing a diaper. And bizarrely, it’s often woman-on-woman hate.

Here’s a thought: People who are tempted to do a little mom-shaming should ask themselves whether they’d say the same thing to a new dad. No? Then keep it to yourself. In fact, just keep it to yourself regardless. Being a parent is hard enough without being judged for every move you make.
