    Chrissy Teigen Was Refreshingly Honest About Having Help As A Working Mom

    "I don’t know how anyone else does it."

    If you follow Chrissy Teigen on Instagram, you're in for a delightful assortment of adorable family photos with her husband, John Legend, and their kids, Luna and Miles.

    Obviously, Chrissy's a working mom — her current gig (among probably like 100 gigs) is being a judge on NBC's comedy variety show Bring the Funny.

    Well, last night, Chrissy was asked for advice on how she balances working on the show with being a mom...

    .@chrissyteigen Can you please talk about working while pregnant, shortly post-pregnancy and away from your babies? I'm watching you on #BringTheFunny and you're so pro and engaged and focused, and I know your babies were/are small and wanting of you.

    ...to which she almost immediately responded that she has a ton of help...and a ton of respect for moms who aren't as fortunate as she is:

    I girl I have HELP and a half. That’s it. There is no way I could have done it without it. I’m so lucky to have it and I don’t know how anyone else does it. I have so much respect for all of you. (also our amazing set provided an amazing daycare room) https://t.co/bSK7v7gvRn

    "I have HELP and a half. That’s it. There is no way I could have done it without it."

    Naturally, a lot of fans loved Chrissy's refreshingly candid reply:

    @chrissyteigen Thank 🙌🏼 you 🙌🏼 I don’t care if you have billions of dollars or you’re a single mom, just admit that you need help because IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A TINY HUMAN👏🏼👏🏼

    @chrissyteigen There are thousands of moms right now who are deeply appreciating your honest response here.

    @chrissyteigen THANK YOU for being so real. This is hard; new moms shouldn’t be fed an illusion.

    Others weren't digging her response quite as much...

    @eastgatecrews ok, I’ll lie next time.

    TY, Chrissy, for continuing to be honest and open on social media!
