Chrissy Teigen and Miles Legend

Chrissy Teigen shared an photo of her adorable son, Miles Theodore Stephens, wearing a shaping helmet to treat a condition known as plagiocephaly (pronounced play-jee-oh-sef-uh-lee), otherwise known as "flat head syndrome."

Chrissy, 33, and 39-year-old singer John Legend's six-month-old son will have to wear the helmet to treat the common condition that occurs when soft plates on the baby's skull form a flat spot at the back of his head when he lays in one position for too long.

Chrissy noted that her son is wearing his helmet to reshape his "adorable, slightly misshapen head".

The Sports Illustrated model and "Lip Sync Battle" host revealed her son's health update on her Twitter and Instagram pages on Monday, sharing a picture of the infant sporting a white helmet.

"Baby miles getting fitted for a little helmet today for his adorable slightly misshapen head," she wrote. "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."

She jokingly added: "I've been told it's too late for my head."

In another post on her Instagram page, Chrissy shared a slightly different snap of Miles in the helmet and captioned it: "My baby bug got his head shaping helmet today! Please don’t feel bad for him if you see photos. He is a happy bug and we’re just fixing his flat!"

Chrissy's social media followers tweeted pics of their own kids wearing similar helmets.

She commented that the snaps were "so cute".

  • soulbrother13

  • Vonn

  • Coy little wink

    Chrissy has grown on me...

  • n1kk1a

    My daughter had this. My mom told me to mold it back and showed me how. She now has a perfect lightbulb shaped head! #dontjudgemeididntknow ??????????

  • WutizstillHERE!

    He is a happy bug and we’re just fixing his flat!"
    I like a mom who knows how to joke about their kids and not take shyt too seriously!

  • Renee26

    He's a cutie pie! My friend husband head is flat in the back...we tease him that his momma refused to hold him when he was a baby cause he was so ugly ?

  • hi-liter

    She’s pretty funny, and she’s not afraid to make fun of herself and her family. Plus she Epic with the clap ?? backs ??.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She just gone force her private life on folk that don't GAF ABOUT HER.. from her ugly toes to pucci to her babies head...BIH BYE..

  • Vonn

    Turrable, just turrable. ?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Such an adorable baby ?

  • ramosyo

    Can't stand her at all.... Idk how she was ever deemed a "model" she has the most bizarre face & flatest ass. But her mouth? Should come with a muzzle.

  • Scromes1212

    She need to be researching how to keep him from having them John legend hips lol hips like a ig model smh


    He is too cute! Chrissy is hilarious and she KNOWS who she is as a woman, mother, wife, and person! Can't knock her humbleness!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Lord I done fell in like with Chrissy after not being able to stand her for YEARS. She stays being funny and just endearing. I can see why John loves her.

  • imright

    i thought flat heads came from not shaping the baby head-after birth. & from letting the baby lay on its back “all day/too much” ????? cute baby so yes if they can fix it they should !

  • TriniHarlem

    I'm still not there with her in the LEAST. However she doesn't make me throw up in my mouth anymore and I can give a half but stern smile towards her.

  • Dowoop

    LMFAO...Y'all are mean.

  • FukkFolks2018

    It took me a LONG LONG TIME. and she got me with her involvement with Black Lives Matter. When her and John sent them food trucks out to the protestors to feed em...I think THAT is where I started to be like okay Chrissy.

  • TriniHarlem

    That's what made me not throw up in my mouth anymore. No matter my preference of a person I give credit and not for nothing her husband speaks out a lot so it was par the course. A good deed is a good deed.

  • Victorious82

    Her lack of curves should balance it out.

  • Vegas1989

    Girl you made me bust out laughing. You need to come and work with me....We roast errryday...These guys can be mean though but I be going in on them....I'm the only sista that work in the RM...

  • AListDiva29

    I want to like her, but can't! Seems everything she does is contrived for attention, just like the K family, SMDH!

  • Phillybruh

    16 mill a year says some people care.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    Chrissy has personality!! She is funny and make fun of herself sometimes! ...Im the same way, if you can do that, you are good in my book!!


    Wow talk about creating an oops off your husbands career.... ??

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I like her! Her and Masika are the clap back queens. I like her personality, she's funny and doesn't take herself too seriously.

  • Lady_Elle

    He is a cutie... patootie!

  • Kimmy

    Kevin Harts new son has a flat head as well

  • Phillybruh

    She makes more than him.

  • Renee26

    We always have a good time cutting eachother up... We have tough skin so nobody gets easily offended

  • Renee26

    ? he has snappy comebacks don't feel sorry for him

  • Renee26

    I be sooo embarrassed

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    you're wayyyyyyy off the mark. She has a few lanes. She was a working model (pre-dates IG) long before she gave that cute nerd the time of day.

  • Harley

    Masika is miserable tho! She is chasing clout any way she can.

  • SumthinSweeter


  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    i adore her too. She is so quirky and adorable.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He’s a cutie, and hopefully, this will inspire other moms, parents to ask for help, head reshaping, legs, eyes, etc.for their babies, regardless of their income bracket! The teasing can be brutal and demolish self-esteem!

  • Harley

    Cute baby

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Yeah, I saw that she was saying the producers of Growing up Hip Hop were making it look like she was chasing after Bow Wow...but I watched some of the episodes and that's exactly what she was doin'. But homegirl is quick on her feet when it comes these trolls on sosha media gotta give her that!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    on another note: why SHOULDN'T wives create opportunities off their husband's career or vice-versa? Isn't that the team work we ask for in our partnerships? I am asking for real

  • hi-liter

    Kinda OT: I bet Atlanta Medicaid office be star-studded as hell when it’s time for recertifications.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    O/T: Roses can i share a story and get your input? A few weeks ago, a guy who was visiting from out of town, asked me out. He had a client meeting in Alpharetta, so we decided to meet at Top Golf. I told him i would come to him, since he really didn't know his way around. He happen to wrap up his meeting earlier than expected. So he asked me to meet him sooner than the time we had already agreed with. I declined, thinking he would just cancel the date. Which i would have been ok with, for no other reason than something else I preferred to do came up. He didn't cancel. he instead decided to stay put and wait for me, 3.5 hours. In the end, I stood him up (not my proudest moment) boot i turned off my phone. He was pissed and rightfully so. So last night, a guy i've been crushing on, asked me out for birthday drinks. I was excited. We agreed to meet in Edgewood. We agreed on 5ish, because he was going to the Hawks game. He stood me up. I was hurt and disappointed. I drove home sulking. What do you guys think: WAS THAT KARMA???

  • DroneRivers

    Yes. I wish karma worked that fast for bad people. But maybe you'll get another chance with him down the road.

  • Eileen go and do better! Treat others they way you want them to treat you! 3.5 hours is a guy that seriously wanted to meet you.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    LOL i figured as much. i felt like she (Karma) got in my car and laughed at me the whole drive home.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    i know. i will. i'm sorry for disappointing you

  • dru and neil

    “Fixing his flat?” So is this about the baby, or the parents ego. When I see a baby wearing this cosmetic helmet, I just don’t see how it can possibly be about anything other than a parent wanting a “cuter” baby. Is there a health concern?

  • dru and neil

    I can’t stand her either. I’m still wondering how she became such a household name.

  • DroneRivers

    This is about where I am with her too. Ever since she picked on little Quvenzhané Wallis I haven't liked her. Now that she's a mom I'm sure she wouldn't appreciate people calling her children names. But that really rubbed me the wrong way.

  • dru and neil

    Damn that’s hardcore.

  • Guest


  • PLEASEDontTellMe


  • dru and neil

    I wish I could say the same, I’m still waiting. Cute kiddos though for sure.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    You reaped what you sowed[and pretty Fast too]. You put deceit and inconsideration out into the atmosphere. It simply came back to you. Like a had no choice.
    Offer a sincere apology. He sounds like a really nice guy and you may end up being great friends.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Kermit's character is flat too.

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah...unfortunately....seems like karma....but Happy Bday tho!!!

  • Trace da Ace

    awww he is soooo cute!!!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    lol Thanks!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    you'd be proud. I did, the very next morning. a lengthy "i ain't shit, please forgive me" text. Earlier this week he texted to wish me a happy birthday. he then stated he would be in town again in a few weeks and would I be interested in making another attempt. I responded: Absolutely.

  • lovelygamour

    I cant stand chrissy or john. However, im glad she is sharing this. Too many people let their infants stay deformed over easily fixable things. Head shape, bowlegged, bad ankles, crossed eyes, and other things can be corrected or atleast made better. So many idiots feel like its "people will think its their fault" and try to hide it. If you go through the shame while they are younger you can avoid a lot of teasing and health problems later. Stride right went out of business because parents dont buy correction shoes anymore. Shame.
    I also hate that these instagram parents dont allow their children to grow in peace.

  • Missy

    3.5 hrs tho?? I would be skerred to meet up with him after that.?

  • lovelygamour

    It depends on how bad. You really want to make sure all the skull pieces are laying properly. Plus babys have a soft spot that you want to close right.

    However, now that you point it out, that helmet looks funny. She seems like the type to get a cosemetic helmet and pretend its serious.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    yep ......

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    lol. he's harmless

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I am both proud and thrilled! Many times in life we don't get a chance to correct something. So I'm very optimistic about your growth as a person and your opportunity to meet a kind, understanding person.
    I hope you have a Great & memorable time!!
    *giggles* Don't forget to tell us all about it. Enjoy.

  • Renee26


  • ClaireHuxtable

    "Stride right" They went out of business?? Lots of kids need their feet corrected.

  • teather

    Your reply is so true but funny. I'm not sure why. Stride rite!! LOL! the famous mall shop. Love it! :)

  • teather

    he's a cutie pie. I think they need to implement rights for kids It's not fair that parents share all the detail of a child's life, including naked pics, without the child's consent. Why? Because this stuff never disappears. You and I don't have to worry that our 4year old bday party where nobody came is forever on the net. There must be boundaries. Normally you could allow parents to decide for themselves but like "smoking in a car with kids" they had to force laws on parents to force them to do what's best for the kids. SMH. Chrissy reveals too much on all these kids. Still not sure John is even straight. She's his beard.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    But don't most Asians have flat.... you know what? Nevermind.
    How y'all doing today?

  • TheOwley

    He's in the same category of kids born with bow legs that need to wear braces, and other slight anomalies which will affect the child later in life. It is the parents' duty to make it fix the issue when the bones are still forming. Kids that are born with lazy eyes have no issue with their vision but also need the corrective care. If you are a parent with the opportunity to do and don't do its, then it's parental neglect. I'm no fan of this woman but she is doing the right thing.

  • tintin
  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    We not going to pretend that she didn't pass that gene on to him...LOL IJS


    Lol ? okay your the only person who has ever heard of this chick before John Legend. Secondly losing up the cape ... I didn’t question whether or not she should or shouldn’t but the fact that she did and is. Your question about this broad spring boarding her career off her dude creating an opportunity and spring boarding from her husbands opportunity it’s a big ass difference. So Superman or woman lol calm down. I am calling it how I see it sorry it got your panties in a bunch she’s what a fame digging win looks like. I called it a win for the gold diggers and social ladder climbers but it is what it is a lot of chicks practically killing themselves to do the exact same thing but come up so short. She is what a win looks like????


    Of course she does now lol

  • Miss Thang

    Shes obnoxious.

  • Soon2BWife

    Wonder when Khloe is gonna reveal what is wrong with True’s head.

  • Applebootay

    No, but that's the same as crooked teeth (braces) Flat feet (those things) etc...

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    dis bih (hard eyeroll)... i hate when less than smart people come in the garden trying to start an unnecessary argument. knowing of her career prior to JL or not has nothing to do with anything. ...calm all the way down speed racer or what ever TF your pronoun's a dialogue not opposing counsel. Spring boarding or as most professionals would call it, networking in like circles, is not a bad thing and it's what people do. (obviously except you) How do you know what she is creating or not creating. And Edit your shit for content, i don't understand half the shit you wrote; "Pedalstool"??? uh?? Your font is bipolar.

  • DeJeri

    DAMMITT!!!!! You took the words right out of my mouth.

  • Karen Brady

    Yes it is and unfortunately I speak from experience. Why did you do the first brother like that though? I'm wondering why you didn't just answer and tell hi you weren't feeling it? No judgement as I've done this to all kinds of folks in the past.

  • Karen Brady

    RIGHT! Like daaaannnnnggggggg.

  • Guess Who

    Parent's need to stop being so lazy always laying their babies on their backs. Rotate that little whippersnapper!

  • Phillybruh

    She always did, she been around a long time.


    losen up the cape...

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Hold up...what she said about her? I didn't like how she shaded Tia or Tamera when they put that pregnancy test on social media... but now I tolerate her.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    When I was a toddler, I used to have to wear my shoes on the wrong feet because I was pigeon toed. That actually fixed my feet to go straight.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone


  • Soon2BWife

    Something is up and she tried to play it off by saying she just thinks they are so cute. She is going to hurt herself trying to keep all her secrets.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I don't have a real answer for you babe. idk

  • Non Conformist

    Just don't put your baby to bed in the same position every night.

  • R Smith


  • dontgetblocked

    She makes a big deal out of everything. You'd think her nanny would change the baby's position.

  • LeeLee

    But Asians USUALLY have fla....nvm.

  • Chicagowise

    Most celebrities are narcissistic and delusional. So, good luck with that.


    Up up and away... you haven’t flown off yet ? I didn’t even read your super hero paragraph of caping... lol

  • Guest©

    She is. Considering how conservative John Legend appears to be, I'm perplexed by their union. Guess some things weren't meant for me to understand.



  • DroneRivers

    This was several years ago when Quvenzhané was about 9 and she had been nominated for an Oscar. And the cameras panned to her sitting in the audience a few times. Chrissy Teigen tweeted something about her being a brat and being "cocky".

  • Allihave2say

    True looks like my nephew. His head stayed I the birth canal and my sister was on bedrest as a result. He had to wear a helmet to reshape his head.

  • Allihave2say

    I actually feel bad for the mothering side of Khlohoe. I'm sure she's thinking the sisters got the cute faces and bodies (naturally) while she came out without the ethnic look. Khloe and Kylie were the two ugly sisters to say the least. Kylie's surgery was a miracle induction of Kim's face. However Khlo would have to break her entire face to try get anywhere near Kim's look.

    Then her daughter came out with less than favorable genes, a hard egg head and Tristan's face. I do think True is a cutie but Khloe seems to disagree with my opinion.

  • Malcom Flex

    I can't stand that pie face piglet.

  • Allihave2say

    Just because John is an education, soft spoken none threatening man, doesn't make him gay. I've seen a few gay thugs.

  • Malcom Flex

    And the cross eyes the baby has... she's another who needs to take 3 months off social media take Puffy and Teigen with her.

  • Allihave2say

    Back in the day a bowlegged brother was a commodity. He was usually considered "fine". People didn't know that bowlegs occurred due to vitamin deficiency. So folks were hoping their kid inherited bow legs.

    I loved Stride Rite, Buster Browns and saddle shoes for my kids. I was telling my parents to get these brands instead of soft soled shoes, tennis shoes etc only to learn they don't sell them any more. The new shoes keep the kids' ankles weak.

  • Allihave2say

    It is a health concern. My nephew had to have one
    I had a kid in daycare who's head was humongous. He had to wear the helmet for a set time, then take it off. It stank to high heavens but it was very necessary. He couldn't sit with his head up because it was so big and misshapen. This is a necessary cosmetic for the child.

  • iblb

    Boy y'all some hateful, ugly spirit folks. How did this become about Khloe or any KKardashian-Jenner?

    Who talks about people's kids?????

    Who raised y'all?

  • lovelygamour

    yeah they went under but payless bought the company. so now they make regular upmarket shoes and some walkers that offer more support. just being curious i looked up "corrected shoes for kids". they dont have any regular stores. you have to get childrens orthopedic shoes and have them adjust for ankles. if i had a kid i would go with the new stride rite but its sad that now parents have to go 2 extra steps for correction shoes.

  • lovelygamour

    stride rite was later bought by payless. they have some fancy shoes and they have WALKERS which are stronger shoes. so you dont get the "correction" but they do seem to be supportive. if a kid needs correction they have to get orthopedic shoes now.

  • Logan Roberts

    What a cutie pie.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Eniko is part Asian. So is Chrissy. It's an Asian trait that is prevalent

  • Wyonda White

    Agreed I had a lazy eye back in the day they gave you an eye patch over the good eye to force the lazy eye to work harder. My son is 4 and has a lazy eye, he has corrective lens. I think its a goid thing it has madehim more responsible. He has to keep up with his glasses

  • Chapter29Chick

    Yeah bec people let their precious babies sleep for 15 hours str8. Even people on this here blog admitted 2 it and argued with me (i wont be petti and post receipts, but just know i can). My babies never had this issue. From mommy experience i recomend at least waking them up every 6-8 hours. Chrissy should have thought about this b4 she posted this. Ijs...

  • ann

    I didn't know that about Stride Right. I just assumed they lost popularity or something because they suddenly disappeared. I bought them for mine when they were little bc they had little wide cornbread feet? And Stride Right was the only brand to carry a really wide variety of widths/sizes.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    He's soooooo adorable.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I'm not fooling with you on this.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Uh uh, black folks think bow legs are sexy. I've been saying for years that's a birth defect that should be corrected. I've been argued and screamed at for my opinion on that.

    Lil kim's daughter has something with her eyes. I asked on a blog when will she get her eye corrected and folks lost their schit. I wasn't talking about he kid at all.

  • CaniLive?

    His head really is flat in the back, I’ve seen pictures.

  • SpiceGirl

    Cutie patootie he is......

  • dru and neil

    Okay so it’s a cosmetic choice. Some people have even likened it to braces for crooked teeth below. How is that not making a kid cuter I don’t know, but we all got our own opinions I guess.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920


  • Eater of Worlds

    You didn't have pigeon toeing then. Pigeon toeing is a result of an inward twisting of the femur, called femoral anteversion. It isn't caused by the feet, the rest of the leg just follows the twist of the femur. It generally self corrects to a level where no treatment is needed, and only if it's really bad do they do anything now. Things like leg braces and shoes do nothing to change the progress of it. If you do need to have it fixed, it happens at about 8 or 9 years of age and involves surgery to cut the femur, rotates the ball of the femur, then reattaches the bone. You'd know if you had it. They used to make non-walking babies wear a bar with shoes on the bar and sleep in those things to hold their legs straight to prevent the rotating. That was about 50 years ago so even back then they knew it wasn't caused by the feet.

  • Eater of Worlds

    These helmets have spots cut out of them where the skull is supposed to move from the pressure put on it by the helmet that is not cut. Each baby has their own helmet with different areas cut out, and as the baby grows they get bigger ones and also they shape it depending on how it has moved so far. That means the holes will be bigger/smaller or in different locations. This helmet looks like any other helmet I've seen for this condition.

  • lovelygamour

    Im surprised how many kinda famous people on aid. So many youtubers are on aid. A lot of the "little woman" cast get some aid. I guess it frees them up to pursue stardom.

  • lovelygamour

    Her friend brooklyn decker. Then she hired a pr team.

  • lovelygamour

    Her friends are models and thats how she got in. She modeled for lifestyle wear.

  • TruthshallsetUFree!!!!

    So adorable

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    About time! That is why is not good to always place a baby on their back to sleep???

  • Allihave2say

    We are talking about correcting a deformity caused by error of Mother Nature or the birthing process. This has nothing to do with cute kids. Some opinions are objective and others are subjective. An objective opinion is usually supported by evidence and factors. You know the rest.

  • Allihave2say

    Wow! I miss them and was really disappointed they were gone. Thanks for the info, I didn't know about Payless buyout.

  • Allihave2say

    We're talking about peoples' kids because this article was about the medical condition of a child, and the platform his mother is using to share her story of recovery with her son. This lead to a discuss regarding celebrity sharing, head shapes, celebrity children and their head shapes which lead to the discussion about True and all the head bands and wraps on her head. Are u all caught up now on the flow of things? Hope this helped!

  • Soon2BWife

    Totally agree. She is going to create all type of insecurities in that child. Which is asham because she seems the most naturally maternal out of all of them.

  • Soon2BWife

    My mother and father. I am not talking about her child other than stating the obvious that she is hiding something which is going to create more of a complex. Her head looks perfectly fine. Go waste your time elsewhere instead of being the internet morality troll police.

  • Allihave2say

    Khloe is too busy Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She is a Roldan and needs to accept that identity while reaping the benefits of the Kardashian name and move on with her life. At this point she's addicted to the lifestyle and identity and desperate to be Kim.

  • lovelygamour

    there was a show called "dance moms". on reddit i said jojo siwa needs to go to speech therapy. i was attacked and call unfit to be a woman. the kid is hard of hearing but the mom wont get her hearing aids or speech therapy because she is working. she is developing bald spots because her gimmick is bows. so they scrap her hair into a ponytail and she wears a big bow. this kid will spend all her earnings on therapy later when she can fix it now. lil kim daughter eye needs to be fixed. its like kim thinks she look like biggie. as much plastic surgery kim has she needs to correct the eye now so the daughter wont have a lot of trouble later.

    some of these fonts cant handle any type of criticism. they dont fix their kids and dont want to be shamed. some of this stuff is easy fixes.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    OMG I'll have to catch the clip on the net. IDK what's wrong with us. We ignore it and/or pray it away.

  • Soon2BWife

    Right, I hope True meets her Grandfather. true looks just like her daddy akd so does Khloe.
