Leave it to Chrissy Teigen to keep it real—and funny. 

Teigen, 34, shared a photo of herself in a doctors office wearing a paper gown and face mask to remind women to keep up with their health in the midst of everything going on in the world. She captioned the candid shot, "don’t forget to keep up with your paps and have your boobs touched even though the world is ending!!"

She's of course referring to Pap smears and clinical breast exams. A Pap smear, also called a Pap test, is a procedure to test for cervical cancer in women. The Mayo Clinic says that doctors generally recommend repeating Pap testing every three years for women ages 21 to 65. According to WebMD, "You should have a clinical breast exam every one to three years starting at age 20 and every year starting at age 40. A clinical breast exam may be recommended more frequently if you have a strong family history of breast cancer."

This isn't the first time Teigen has opened up about her boobs recently. Last month, she shared that she was having her breast implants removed. She wrote on Instagram, “A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out. They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort!”  

After the surgery, she shared the priceless signs her kids—Luna (4) and Miles (2)—made for her to read after her operation. Luna’s note read, “Have fun pulling your boobies out. Love Luna,” while Miles simply wrote, “Bye boobies.”

We love this woman—and her unflinching honesty.
