Chrissy Teigen hits out at 'mummy shamers'

Chrissy Teigen has hit out at "mummy shamers" after she was told she was holding her daughter incorrectly.

The 30-year-old model is mother to six-month-old Luna - who she shares with husband John Legend - and has taken to Twitter to blast those who judge her parenting skills.

When one fan tweeted a picture of Chrissy carrying her daughter and said "this is not how a baby is held", she fumed back: "Really because that's how I'm f***ing holding her."

She then posted a follow-up tweet which read: "Photos are literally split-second moments in time that evolve. I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers. (sic)"

And the onslaught of tweets didn't stop there, as she then received another tweet that claimed she was holding Luna in an "incorrect" way.

The tweet read: "There are incorrect ways to hold infants whether shielding her from a fire or pap! (sic)"

Chrissy simply responded: "Please, do shut up."

The news comes just a few weeks after the beauty made her Twitter account private, claiming she wasn't "strong enough" to allow the whole world to see her tweets. Now, only those users she has approved are able to see her updates.

Asked if she had made her account private, she tweeted: "Yeah. Not strong enough anymore. It's not haters or trolls or generally mean people. I just feel like I am absorbing bad s**t 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore."

The 'Sports Illustrated model' previously admitted she is jealous of her 2.13 million followers because she wishes she could follow herself.

She wrote: "I am the best follow I know. I am jealous I'm not me and can't feel what it's like to follow me.

"I mean I'm jealous I'm not you ... I am me (sic)"
