Oh, the highs and lows of parenting! Chrissy Teigen shared some fun tales involving son Miles on Sunday (July 12), and how husband John Legend played an important part.

The TV personality and cookbook author first tweeted excitedly that the toddler "just said his longest sentence yet!" She then added the 2-year-old's exact words: "mommy I need you to move, please."

But celebratory milestones can beget even bigger moments, or in Miles' case, publicized bowel movements.

"he also took a poop log straight out of his butt and put it onto the coffee table yesterday. John can confirm!!!!!" Teigen went on to write before the "Bigger Love" singer indeed confirmed the story with his reply, "facts. all facts."

He then revealed just exactly how he stepped in, recalling, "i also picked it up with my bare hand and took it to the toilet because i give up."

Teigen applauded Legend for his bold gesture, replying to him, "u really did and it was really something."

Yes, despite her earlier statement that "twitter doubles as my baby book," she told an inquiring Twitter user that a picture wasn't one for the books. She explained how the couple didn't want to embarrass Miles, so naturally, Teigen "only decided to tell 13 million people" who follow the star on the social media platform.
