When you’ve got a cute baby in your home, it’s easy to convince yourself you need one more — which is precisely why Chrissy Teigen just shared a messy photo of Miles, her apparently mischievous 1 ½-year-old son. As Teigen playfully tells it, her little boy covering himself in acrylic paint is the kind of reminder she needs that two kids is plenty for the Teigen-Legend household. Bonus? Fans know exactly how she feels.
On Saturday night, Teigen posted two photos of Miles, her son with husband John Legend. In the photos, the toddler is sitting beside a brightly painted blue and magenta pumpkin. Except, the pumpkin isn’t the only thing covered in paint! Little Miles managed to cover himself in the vibrant hues, too (as Teigen points out in the comments, “He painted his own nipples.”) Captioning the cute photos, Teigen joked, “When I had zero babies I wanted 4. Then 1, I wanted 3. Then 2, I’m good with 2. Just posting this to look at when I’m pregnant with my third.”
As it turns out, many of Teigen’s also hold onto their own photographic evidence to help keep their baby cravings in check. And, hilariously, they shared these, ahem, precious moments in solidarity with Teigen.

When I had zero babies, I wanted maybe one. When I had one baby, I wanted two. I wanted to stop at two because she’s a beast. Then I had three by accident and decided four was our number. I have some regrets sometimes. pic.twitter.com/2ECAzmoQNs

This is my daughter when she was three, a few days before she got stitches for the second time.
I have 3 kids (she's #2) and still want more.
I am possibly insane. pic.twitter.com/VmXjgzypQB

My third and final when she got into my mascara. She was the "get one free" who came with the second baby and she one of the lights of my life. Even though she's very 14 these days. pic.twitter.com/Bp17ruDQCn

If you ask us, Teigen got off light here. Miles at least kept the majority of his paint contained to his own body. Even so, we imagine she wouldn’t actually stress too much if her son had turned into a Picasso of chaos and painted the entire kitchen in broad strokes of blue and magenta. Who could honestly stay mad at that sweet little face anyway?
That’s not to say Teigen has mastered the art of zen parenting. Earlier this week, she shared a funny video of Legend and the couple’s daughter, Luna, ganging up on her during a round of “Hot Potato” — and it suggests that sometimes Teigen has no chill.
As for her and Legend having more kids, well, we don’t want to wish anything upon them they aren’t ready for yet. In August, she told a fan they were “gonna try to wait a few more years before attempting again” since their current kids “are exhausting.” From the sound of Teigen’s latest post, though, the desire to add one more to their brood might win out sooner rather than later.
