Chrissy Teigen is quite the force to be reckoned with on Instagram - especially when trolls criticize her mothering methods.

In a silly debate that has become all the rage in recent years, a worrying number of social media users took umbrage to Teigen posting a photo of herself breastfeeding her newborn child.

Captioning the sweet photo, Teigen, who is married to the musical superstar John Legend, wrote,  "Luna making me feed her babydoll so I guess I have twins now."

However, while the post was intended to be humorous, the post attracted numerous trolls wanting to discredit Teigen's breastfeeding, to which she brilliantly hit back, writing that they had "titty issues."

Thankfully, the majority of responses were positive. One user wrote: "I love this picture it shows so much depth into your lovely family and your teaching both your little ones to be absolutely fine with the human body and what it does. You show so much of what really goes on in your life and it's so refreshing."

Another user also thanked her for normalizing breastfeeding and using her fame for something worthwhile.

"This is parenting at its absolute best," another user wrote.

But Teigen's breastfeeding photos are nothing new. Just last month, Legend shared a picture of his wife pumping breast milk in the car, which he captioned rather beautifully. "I know it's Father's Day and all but my wife is pretty awesome. She's taking me to dinner but still on mommy duty."

We don't know about you, but we think Teigen is one of the few celebrities in Hollywood who doesn't try to sugarcoat her famous life like many other Instagram models and celebrities do.

Full props to you Teigen and long may your realistic portrayals of motherhood and family life continue!
