Chrissy Teigen is a trailblazer of The Year of Babies, or The Year of the Pregnant Celebrity. Her baby — or more specifically her bump — has been subject to much spectacle this year, and it must be hard to be a celebrity bump. All the Instagram shoots, paparazzi, media rumors, dumbass trolls, walks with the dog, and most of all, the low-key pats on the belly.
This time though, the baby bump is making a stand and doing things its own way. It is going out without a soft pat attached to it, not from John Legend, nor singer Alicia Keys. The bump gained some victorious independence and strolled around Los Angeles in some comfortable sports leggings, a black and neon coral tank top, black and white sneakers and a slouched leather jacket. To top it all off, the bump's carrier wore some sick aviators, because this is one cool baby, baby.
