Moms everywhere will totally relate to this picture. Chrissy Teigen shared an Instagram photo of Luna and Miles crying and mother figures everywhere are suddenly feeling seen. The picture, which may as well have been simply captioned “#momlife” was captured by Teigen’s husband, John Legend, featuring a candid family moment that moms know all too well.
The post captures Teigen with Luna, 3, and one-year-old Miles outdoors — nothing unusual so far, right? But there’s something amiss in the picture, and that’s the glowing smile of Teigen compared to the tears of her two littles. Grinning at the camera, Teigen holds Miles on her lap with with a toy mermaid in her right hand. At Teigen’s knee is a crying Luna, who appears to be reaching for the toy while Miles looks as though he’s reaching for his big sister. All told, there’s a lot happening in this photo, with Teigen comedically captioning the image, “everything’s fine over here.”
Fans of the NBC’s Bring the Funny judge offered up a slew of hilarious comments to match the picture. “This looks like a renaissance painting,” one fan wrote. Another fan wrote, “Relatable AF.” Some were wondering if Legend had captured the moment, to which the Grammy winner offered a resounding, “YES!” A true model Instagram husband.
And speaking of Instagram husbands, it looks like John is, hilariously, finally stepping up to the plate (or should we say picking up the smartphone) now, after his model wife publicly called him out on never taking photos of her with their kids in a post where she lamented how she’s always the one taking family photos. Teigen wrote, “I never have pictures of myself because I am selfless and am the designated photo taker and keeper for my family and no one else seems to care to be thoughtful and take good photos of me. They merely click them off without paying attention to angles or lighting or general photo ambience.”
In perhaps the ultimate clapback, Legend snapped this epic and oh-so-relatable photo. Let’s hope there are more in the future.
