Chrissy Teigen reveals the personal reason why she won’t get baby Luna’s ears pierced

Chrissy Teigen has revealed the personal reason she won’t be having her daughter Luna’s ears pierced any time soon.

The 31-year-old – who shares 18-month-old Luna with singer John Legend – has decided to let the choice fall to her daughter when she’s older.

Talking to E! News she said: ‘[Luna] doesn’t have her ears pierced and I’m going to let her decide when she wants to do that.’

The decision was made as a result of Chrissy’s own experience with getting her ears pierced as a child.

‘I remember when I was little what I went through. My mum did it for me,’ she recalled.

Piercing a baby’s ears is still a very controversial subject in many circles, and piercing your child’s ears at any young age is a personal decision – usually rooted in family or culture.

However, piercing a child’s ears too early could open an opportunity for infection, which is why most experts recommend to wait until at least six months of age for them to be pierced.
