Chrissy Teigen is keeping it real once again. The model and new momma is showing everyone she’s not afraid of her flaws. Chrissy Teigen is never afraid to show off a little, or a LOT of skin - especially her legs. And while she’s always looking extra glamorous, the new mom wants other moms to know, she’s just like them. She’s got stretch marks. Chrissy tweeted out a photo last night showing off her many leg stretch marks. “Whatevs,” she wrote in the caption. This caused fans to immediately resonate with the star and may praised her for her honesty. “Thanks for reminding everyone that not everyone is 100% flawless,” one twitter user wrote. This isn’t the first time Chrissy has kept it real. The 31-year-old star is all about showing off her flaws. Last year, Chrissy again showed a close-up photo of her legs - just after she gave birth to her daughter Luna. “My thighs have tributaries,” she wrote, with the crying face emoji. And nearly two years ago she again shared a photo of her legs proving she’s just like the rest of us. “Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week,” she wrote on Instagram. “Stretches say hi!” Way to keep it real. 1 new message since 10:04 AM Mark as read (esc) Downloads Clear all chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder chrissy-teigen.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kendall-kylie-glam-room.jpg Cancel Show in Finder blac-chyna-kris-jenner.jpg Cancel Show in Finder kevin-durant-russell-westbrook.jpg Cancel Show in Finder Hold Shift to open the file.

Theresa May’s speech this week confirmed that Britain was leaving the single market.

By Anjuli Davies and Andrew MacAskill LONDON (Reuters) - Global banks have begun signalling how they will put plans into action to cope with a "hard" exit by Britain from the European Union. Until now, banks have considered varying degrees of upheaval to their British-based businesses, depending on whether the outcome of Brexit was "hard" or "soft."

Bank executives will present plans to their boards in the coming months outlining where they want to relocate operations to and how much it will cost, banking industry sources said.
By Joyce Lee and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - A South Korean court on Thursday dismissed an arrest warrant against the head of Samsung Group, the country's largest conglomerate, amid a graft scandal that has led to the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.

Lee left the Seoul Detention Centre carrying a white shopping bag and climbed into a car without talking to reporters, having been held overnight as the court deliberated whether to grant the arrest warrant.

By Roli Srivastava MUMBAI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Inside a bungalow in a plush residential area of Gurugram, on the outskirts of New Delhi, a group of women in different stages of pregnancy share the hope their babies will be delivered safely - or risk losing the chance of big money, forever. Successful pregnancies have never been more important at this surrogacy centre where every bed is taken following a jump in demand as India inches towards banning commercial surrogacy. India's surrogacy industry has come under attack by women's rights groups who say fertility clinics are "baby factories" for the rich, and that a lack of regulation results in poor and uneducated women signing contracts they do not fully understand.
