Teigen, a former swimsuit model, has frequently spoken out about her flaws and how perfection is a myth. Last year, the co-host of Spike's “Lip Sync Battle” posted a photo of herself sitting cross-legged that revealed stretch marks on both thighs.

And luckily for her, John Legend loves her and her stretch marks.

“I come from a stretch mark-prone family — I have them all over my butt and inner thighs,” the new mom told Allure in March. 

“Luckily, I'm with a man who could not care less about them or else I would be insecure, but during my pregnancy, it was my belly I was scared of. I knew I'd have to do something about it before I started seeing them.”

Whether you flaunt your imperfections or try to reduce them, just know you don’t have to keep beating yourself up for being human. Remember: Everyone really does have stretch marks — and it’s A-OK.
