Chrissy Teigen shows son wearing a corrective helmet

Model Chrissy Teigen shared on Twitter that her son will wear a corrective helmet because he is "fixing his flat."

Chrissy Teigen is showing us yet another way she is relatable.

The mother of two took to Twitter Monday to inform her millions of followers that her 6-month-old son, Miles, will be wearing a corrective helmet to treat his plagiocephaly, commonly known as "baby flat-head."

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

Hours later Teigen shared a picture on Instagram of her cuddling with Miles, who was wearing his new head gear.

"My baby bug got his head shaping helmet today," she captioned the image, adding her son is "a happy bug."

"It is SO cute. You guys are very sweet," she tweeted after the thread caught fire.

User @C_Kosh assured the cookbook author that Miles will be charming with his new accessory. "My boy had one and was incredibly adorable," he added.

@Jenamer hopped on the comment train by sharing a heartwarming picture of her child, asking, "Is this the official babies with helmets thread?"

User @mikeCMaine added to the "pile of helmet pics" with an epic throwback photo of his daughter from 2010: "Doctor says her head is beautiful now, so she has that going for her."

@Fraggle5512 says her son's head "is gorgeous now" after wearing his "Toy Story"-inspired helmet. She added in some words of encouragement: "It went by so quick."

Teigen shares Miles and daughter Luna, 2, with husband John Legend. And by the looks of this equally adorable Instagram video Teigen posted, big sister Luna will help Miles adjust to his new helmet.
