If there's one thing Chrissy Teigen is not, it's shy.

The supermodel shared an Instagram photo on Monday, proudly showing off her bruises and stretch marks.

The stunner captioned the photo, which shows her sitting in a cross-legged position, "Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!"

Now, this is why we love her.The Sports Illustrated cover girl is all about keeping it real, and this photo is just further proof. Her refreshing, and often humourous, take on body image is confidence is refreshing, especially in a world that filled with airbrushed magazine ads and covers.

And this isn't the first time John Legend's wife has taken to Instagram to show us all her curves and all her edges (all her perfect imperfections) sans Photoshop.

Back in 2013, the stunner shared a different photo (this time, a close-up) of her stretch marks, with the caption, "hi thigh stretchies I have you but you are mine so I'll accept you." (And clearly hubby John accepts then too!)

Keep on keepin' it real, girl!
