Chrissy Teigen is opening up to fans. The TV personality and model opened up about her sobriety on social media.

On Tuesday morning, Teigen shared a video of herself to Instagram, in which she danced around in a one-piece swimsuit during her family's Christmas visit to St. Barts.

As Teigen showed off her moves in hilariously awkward fashion, she also attempted to croon the classic tune "Good Morning" from the 1952 musical Singing In the Rain. However, she almost immediately forgot the words and ended up just laughing at herself.

The post elicited a flurry of supportive comments from her friends and fans who were happy to see Teigen in high spirits after her tremendously difficult year.

One commenter jokingly poked fun at the goofy video, writing, "I need whatever drugs you're on."

Teigen -- who has been very open with her past intermittent struggles with alcohol consumption -- excitedly revealed that she's "4 weeks sober," along with some pink heart and prayer hands emojis.

Fans were overwhelmingly supportive in response to Teigen's comment, sharing their love, congratulations and their own sobriety milestones.

Back in 2017, Teigen spoke with Cosmopolitan about how she's the kind of person that "can't just have one drink."

"I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show, and then a bunch at the awards show." she shared. "Then I felt bad for making kind of an a** of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there's just nothing like that."

She added, "You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for [husband] John [Legend], for anybody."

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
