Chrissy Teigen, the model who always has an epic clapback on Twitter, shared a sweet message on social media about her and John Legend’s son, 6-month-old Miles.
“Baby miles getting fitted for a little helmet today for his adorable slightly misshapen head,” she tweeted earlier this month. “So if you see pictures, don’t feel bad for him because he’s just fixing his flat and honestly he’s probably gonna be even cuter with it somehow.”
Teigen then shared photos of Miles’s custom-made helmet to treat his plagiocephaly, which is more commonly known as “flat head syndrome.” The condition affects nearly 1 in 2 infants and is characterized by the development of a flat spot on the back or side of a baby’s head.
Her tweet inspired other parents whose children have plagiocephaly and encouraged them to share photos of their own cute babies in their helmets — some that even look like R2D2!
Others offered Teigen words of encouragement, should people’s stares ever get her down. One user shared that her son’s head is “gorgeous” after wearing his helmet and that “it went by so quick.”
Obviously, these babies are cute AF with or without a helmet, but it’s nice to see so many supportive comments toward Teigen and her family.
