Even Supermodel Moms Can’t Get Their Kids to Smile for the Camera

You want to capture all those magical moments, but kids don’t always like to cooperate when you ask them to say “cheese.” As a supermodel, Chrissy Teigen has spent her career posing for the camera, but as her recent Instagram post shows, even she has a hard time trying to get kids to smile for a photo.

Teigen recently shared a photo to her Instagram feed posing with her two kids. She is holding baby Miles, while Luna is seated next to her looking very serious.

Sometimes even with the best tips and tricks, like the clever one used by the Royal family’s photographers, can’t convince your kids to crack a smile and that’s okay. If there’s one thing kids should have control over it’s their bodies and feelings and Luna is showing that she has inherited her moms fierce sense of self.

The best part about this picture is that Teigen chose to post it any way.  Often times all we see in social media, especially with celebs, is the good stuff which makes it hard to remember that everyone struggles with parenting. And that’s why love Teigen so much for always keeping it real.
