Chrissy Teigen has proven time and time again that she won’t be intimidated by Twitter trolls.
Whether they’re shaming her for her political beliefs, what she wears to awards shows, or how she holds her baby, the supermodel is glad to call social media haters out, much to the delight of her actual fans. This time, she’s clapping back against those who criticize her approach to IVF.
Teigen has been upfront about her struggles with getting pregnant, explaining that she and husband John Legend used IVF to conceive daughter Luna Simone. Though Teigen isn’t pregnant with baby number two yet, she recently revealed that they already know that their second child will be a boy. This set off a firestorm of criticism on Twitter. Teigen immediately clarified her position during a series of tweets of her own, and directly addressed her harshest critics saying:
Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah.
And no, I am not pregnant.
Hi Linda, thanks for asking, you complete witch. I tried for about 9 years. Anything else, let me know! https://t.co/54e9AvIqQ9
