Mother of two Chrissy Teigen isn’t shy when it comes to getting real about parenting.

The 33-year-old model recently called out those participating in the viral “cheesed challenge,” in which parents throw slices of cheese at their unsuspecting children, Dearly reported.

Teigen tweeted about the trend:

I love a prank as much as anybody but I cannot get myself to throw cheese at my adorable, unsuspecting baby who has all the hope and trust in the world in me.

Now, she’s sharing her opinion on another hot topic — lavish children’s birthday parties.

Hollywood stars like the Kardashians seem to be upping the ante for kid’s parties these days.

Kylie Jenner created a mini amusement park for her daughter’s first birthday, complete with a giant inflatable version of Stormi’s head, a merry-go-round, and even a gift shop.

And her big sister Kim Kardashian went equally as big for her daughter, Chicago. The infant’s first birthday had an “Alice in Wonderland” theme and featured costumed characters.

Teigen was in attendance with her children and husband, John Legend, for the elaborate birthday event.

However, Teigen apparently isn’t a fan of throwing massive parties for kids.

The model’s daughter, Luna, is turning three next month and they’re only planning on having a small, Disney-themed celebration at their home, she told Us Weekly.

“I think we’ve been to enough kids’ birthday parties here in L.A. to know that, ‘OK, we can’t do this.’ They don’t seem to ever have a good time. All the other kids have a great time, but the kid is usually totally overwhelmed, and a lot of the times it’s for the parents, honestly.”

Teigen said she knows her daughter will love the party even if it’s not over-the-top:

“She’s so into princesses right now. She’s very into Disney movies. I think we might do that, but she’s not gonna know until we’re there. I think we’re just gonna keep it small, keep it family, and make her Disney dreams come true.”

  1. She attends said parties then bashes them??? Isn’t that the definition of a hypocrite and….gasp…mom shaming?!?!? If the mom wants to do it, let them! You don’t know the conversation behind family doors about what the 2yr old screamed they needed!! For someone who hates “Mom shaming”, you have a lot to say about others! Hmm

  2. I am with Chrissy 100%….
    We people throw these EXTREME parties
    it is FOR THEM..They are living vicariously
    through their children. YOUNG child are quite simple and easy to entertain. Keep it simple an intimate so they learn and appreciate aging. SAME for the sixteen year parties. OUTLANDISH. .What do these children have to look forward to when they become adults. Let the child live, play,
    use their creativity and imagination. .
    They are only children once, let them enjoy all the nuances of being a child💕
