Chrissy Teigen shrugs off criticism after going out with hubby John - without baby Luna

New mum Chrissy Teigen has fired back at critics who chastised her for leaving her two-week baby at home to enjoy a date night with her husband.

The model and TV personality, who gave birth to little Luna Simone on April 14, and her husband, singer John Legend, hit celebrity eatery The Nice Guy in Hollywood on Saturday.

However some of her followers were not impressed with images of the new parents daring to enjoy some well-deserved time together.

Some suggested the couple should not have left their baby home alone, while others defended Teigen's decision to spend a little quality time with her husband.

The model, 30, woke up to all the comments on Sunday and took to Twitter to shoot back. She wrote: "I went to dinner. People are pissed. Good morning!"

Responding to another fan's question about what she ate on her date night, she replied: "seared scallops with leaks (sic) and potato puree."

And when another follower asked how her baby girl was, Teigen snapped back, "I dunno i can't find her", joking about the fact some critics thought she was a careless mum.

Responding to another's tweet, Teigen also wrote: "'I never wanted to leave my daughter, I love her, BUT THAT'S JUST ME' - the passive aggressiveness is real!"


It's not the first time Teigen has shared a few home truths since welcoming her daughter, after revealing last week that she's wearing post-partum nappies.

"No one told me i would be coming home in diapers too," she tweeted several days after welcoming Luna.

Teigen isn't the first new mum to suffer pelvic floor weakness after childbirth (and nor will she be the last), but the straight-talker is one of the first celebrities to talk about the rarely-mentioned topic.

The model was also vocal about her struggle with infertility, and the consequent IVF treatment she underwent to conceive her daughter.
