Chrissy Teigen shares her stretch marks (again), and it's possible we love her even more.

Supermodel and TV personality Chrissy Teigen has built a reputation for being unapologetically honest about fame, pregnancy and parenthood, as well as the way her body has changed since becoming pregnant with daughter Luna.

With a mixture of humour and insight, Teigen’s social media feeds are typically full of content that makes women feel better about themselves.

Now, the 30-year-old has sent a Snapchat showing her stretch marks, and women everywhere are in awe of her confidence.

The overall sentiment of her fans is gratefulness. They appreciate Teigen's ability to embrace her own body image issues and imperfections, and they say that her openness encourages other women to do the same.

This isn't the first time Teigen has shared an image of her stretch marks. Almost 18 months ago, the star was widely praised after she shared an Instagram image of her thighs with stretch marks and bruises. Her caption read, 'Stretchies say hi!' and fans responded with heart-felt messages.
