Chrissy Teigen may be a gorgeous supermodel who co-hosts a hit TV show and is married to John Legend, but none of that keeps her from being so damn relatable.

And if you follow her on Twitter or Instagram you know exactly what we're talking about. Take, for example, this photo she posted on Monday, in which she sits cross-legged. No Photoshop here, as the 29-year-old Sports Illustrated model fully embraces the fact that she has stretch marks, just as many women do, regardless of their size.

"Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!," she captioned the photo.

Teigen has always been able to keep it real when it comes to celebrating a positive body image. Last year, she fought back after Instagram commenters had the audacity to write that it looked like she gained weight, and she didn't hold back her feelings about clothing retailer Forever 21, who she says fired her for being "too fat." Teigen told DuJour magazine that after being booked by the company, she got a call from her agency who told her, "You need to leave right now, they just said you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken."

Teigen later responded to a fan on Twitter who couldn't handle this mind-boggling information. "Yep they suck and I hate them," she replied.

Well Chrissy, keep being you.
