See Chrissy Teigen's Candid Words about Postpartum Life

The supermodel doesn't pull any punches when it comes to discussing childbirth.

Last week, Chrissy Teigen revealed that she had welcomed a baby boy into the world with husband John Legend a few weeks ahead of his official due date.

On Sunday, she finally put up the first adorable photo of their second bundle of joy, and revealed his name: Miles Theodore Stephens.

Teigen is infamous for drawing back the curtain on her seemingly perfect life and reminding people that even though she's a supermodel, she's also still a human woman. And as magical as the process of being pregnant and giving birth is, parts of it are kind of gross. Case in point: giving birth to Miles was a lot easier on her body.

Which inspired other women to share their own stories about the miracle of birth.

And in case your imagination can't do the work for you, she then shared a helpful visual of the disposable medical mesh underwear that she had to wear after being discharged from the hospital. All women have to wear these super-sexy panties, since postpartum bleeding can continue for days, but it's been a well-kept secret between women until now. 

In the end, though, it's all worth it for the result.
