John Legend and Chrissy Teigen had a baby just weeks ago, a little girl named Luna Simone.
Chrissy was quickly welcomed into the new mums club through our standard initiation procedures; we commented on her birth choices, inquired into her feeding practices and noted her post baby body.
Chrissy Teigen passed her final initiation quite quickly, when we shamed her for daring to go out to dinner with her partner.
Welcome Chrissy. We’re delighted to have you join us. The new mums club is a dangerous place of shame and judgement served up through a thin veneer of support and solidarity. But you’ve probably figured that out by now.
You’ll get slapped around on Twitter and Instagram for cooking your Mother’s Day breakfast in a crop top. You’ll be questioned for snap-chatting while breastfeeding. And probably next week, someone somewhere will have something to say about the fact that you’re going back to work (ALL POWER TO YOU, by the way)
