Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s son, Miles Stephens, is not wearing a helmet just for fashion. The celebrity couple’s youngest child has a medical condition known as plagiocephaly that calls for the extra protection. Chrissy took to the Internet on Monday to tweet about her son’s condition.
“Baby miles getting fitted for a little helmet today for his adorable slightly misshapen head,” Teigen wrote online. “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,” the star mom concluded.
Plagiocephaly is a medical condition in which a baby’s head becomes flat in one spot. The state usually comes about when the little one spends too much time lying on his or her back. Not to worry, though. Plagiocephaly is fixable and does not affect brain development in any way.
Miles Stephens has certainly taken the Internet by storm with his cute pictures and video clips. Many cannot get enough of the youngster’s relationship with his older sister, Luna Stephens.
Chrissy Teigen delved into her life as a parent of a toddler during a recent interview with AOL’s Gibson Johns. “It would be easy to be a parent if you said ‘yes’ all the time and gave them what they wanted, but you just can’t do that,” the celebrity mom said of rearing little Luna.
“There are certain things, of course, where you’re going to say ‘no’ and be tougher on, but I come from the point of view where, if nobody is getting hurt or it’s not going to spoil her and make her feel like the center of the universe for the rest of her life, then it’s a go. It’s going to be fine. She deserves these fun moments! And, honestly, John and I deserve them, too. It’s fun to grow up with silliness and fun.”
