The first-time mother insists paparazzi shots never tell the full story.

Model Chrissy Teigen has taken a Twitter critic to task after she was accused of holding her baby daughter "like a handbag".

The runway beauty and TV personality was photographed carrying six-month-old Luna to a car while out in New York City with her husband John Legend this week (begs17Oct16).

However, one snap caught the attention of an outspoken woman on social media, who took it upon herself to scold Chrissy and demand she learn how to hold her child properly.

"This is not how a baby is held," the user posted. "I don't give a c**p where that baby popped out from! Do not hold a baby like a handbag!"

Clearly annoyed by the unsolicited advice, Chrissy responded, "Well, you hold your handbag like a f**king idiot then."

Her remark didn't stop the follower from continuing to rant at the first-time mum, adding, "Nothing grinds my t**s like a person holding a baby inappropriately! I almost grew up deformed cause I dislocated my arm for two days as a baby!"

"Let me know how you hold your baby when she's about (to get) into a stroller and there are 20 camera flashes at night," Chrissy fired back, insisting paparazzi pictures aren't always as they seem. "Photos are literally split-second moments in time that evolve."

"I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers," she declared, before concluding, "Please, do shut up."

Teigen is no stranger to facing criticism online, and she even made her Twitter profile private earlier this month (Oct16), after tiring of "absorbing bad s**t 24/7".
