Chrissy Teigen is one of Hollywood’s funniest and good-natured celebrities — until you come for her kids.

The Lip Sync Battle star, 33, took to Twitter on Tuesday, December 4, to address the backlash she received for revealing that her 6-month-old son with husband John Legend , Miles, needs helmet therapy. “Good morning trolls! Just a friendly reminder that you do not indeed know absolutely everything. Miles has been seeing a physiotherapist – we didn’t just go straight to helmet. We tried muscle work and will continue,” she wrote. “Also your flat headed kid turned out fine yes yes yes I agree.”

Just didn’t want you guys to see pictures and wonder. Not promoting anything. Just sharing our story! Thank you back to your bridge now.

Teigen tweeted that baby Miles needed to undergo the treatment for “his adorable slightly misshapen head” on Monday, noting, “Honestly he’s probably gonna be even cuter with it somehow.” She also quipped, “I have been told it’s too late for my head.”

While some fans questioned her and Legend’s decision, an even larger amount praised her for bringing awareness to the common therapy. After Teigen shared an adorable selfie with Miles, fans shared photos of their own children wearing helmets.

One Twitter user wrote, “THIS THREAD!!!! So much love, joy and beyond adorable babies!!!!! Thanks for starting this thread, Chrissy!!!” Another simply stated, “You did something wonderful.”
