For reasons that remain a complete mystery, the internet is obsessed with putting Chrissy Teigen's pregnancy and subsequent motherhood under a microscope. Actually, we take that back—the reason is not a mystery. It's clearly just a horrible combination of sexism and trolling.
The problem started when Teigen revealed that she'd chosen a female embryo during her IVF treatment (opens in new tab), and now she's at the point where going out for dinner with her husband causes Twitter to meltdown. Because god forbid a new mom leave her baby with a trustworthy adult for a couple hours, right?
Even more frustrating is the fact that Chrissy Teigen is facing the internet's ire alone. Do the faceless handles on Twitter care that her husband, John Legend, also went out for a baby-less meal? Nope, and he's completely aware of how unfair it is.
Funny there's no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn't have to take it all. We'll split it.May 11, 2016
This tweet is equal parts smart and sweet, but of course, neither Chrissy nor John should be shamed for their parenting choices. Their baby is going to grow up with insane amounts of love, so—to quote the '90s—let's just take a chill pill.
