Chrissy Teigen at the grocery store is every mom, everywhere
Any mom will tell you — there’s absolutely nothing glamorous about grocery shopping. It’s also collectively agreed upon that next to endless laundry, it’s our least favorite necessary activity. Even for celebrity moms.
And it just so happens our favorite celebrity mom, Chrissy Teigen, just shared a photo of her shopping with daughter Luna, and it basically proves she’s All Of Us at the grocery store.
The only thing missing from her shopping cart? All of the fucks she doesn’t give.

I used to assume people who got photographed in grocery stores weren’t really buying stuff they like and were getting paid for something but turns out the paps actually come inside the grocery store and capture your most intimate grocery cart items this is a travesty #TOOINTIMATE #KEEPCARTSPRIVATE #SACREDSPACE
“I used to assume people who got photographed in grocery stores weren’t really buying stuff they like and were getting paid for something,” she writes in the caption. “But turns out the paps actually come inside the grocery store and capture your most intimate grocery cart items. This is a travesty.”
Open any tabloid magazine (located, somewhat ironically, at the grocery store) and you’ll see dozens of photos of celebrities doing their Whole Foods shopping. They look put together, they’re buying their $17 kale chips and organic toilet paper, and they’re smiling for photographers. Take these photos of Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria, for example.
It’s natural to assume those photos are #sponcon, because who really shops like that? They’re beautiful women and we love them dearly, but we can relate to Chrissy on a more spiritual, “just throw it in the fucking cart” level. After all, her baby is sucking the life out of her. Can anyone blame her for buying every sugary cereal she sees?
While she no doubt has plenty of people who go out and buy things for her, she showed up to get her groceries herself — with toddler in tow — and the picture she shared is so familiar to moms everywhere. Hair up, toddler pulling things out of the cart, a box of Cap ‘n Crunch, a carton of eggs sloshing around toward the bottom, and produce just strewn about every which way. That is real life. (Minus the super chic, probably super designer coat.)
That Cap ‘n Crunch isn’t found at Whole Foods. And we love her for it.
