Chrissy Teigen has reached a landmark day in her sobriety as she celebrated 100 days without alcohol.
The mother-of-two, 35, ditched the booze after cyberbullying accusations, including a post in which she told a then-teenage Courtney Stodden to die.
Chrissy discussed her sobriety in her first TV interview since the scandal broke earlier in the year.
Several old tweets resurfaced at the time and the model faced with a severe backlash from the public as well as being dropped by several big-name endorsements and brand deals.
Speaking to the Today show's Hoda Kotb, Chrissy gushed how she has been sober since July and said that giving up alcohol has helped her become a "better person".
She told the presenter: "I'm actually a hundred days sober today and I'm so excited. I feel so good, I feel very clear-headed.
"Aside from being pregnant, I hadn't gone more than a day or two [without a drink], ever, since I started drinking at 20 or so. I just never really had that period of time of clear thought."
She revealed that her behaviour "became embarrassing" and said that she realised she "can't be the messy one" when her husband John Legend is a respected and beloved artist.
She continued: "Waking up in the morning and being like, 'Oh, what did I say?' That feeling is not worth it. Not to mention the headaches and everything."
She went on to discuss how she felt the scandal had changed her for the better. "I feel like I've done the work and I just hope these people can forgive and be able to welcome the fact that hopefully they've seen me be better.
"Having this period of time, and time to digest it all, and being able to look back, and to realise that there is so much time to grow and to learn and to become more empathetic.
"I look at my kids and what I want their values to be, and how I want them to treat people, and seeing that in myself, that I wasn't doing that, was I think the hardest part for me — was realising, my goodness, this really had an effect on people."+
She added: "I think you learn so much in the moments where you do lose so much, you lose it all, your world is kind of turned upside down."
Chrissy confessed earlier in the week that the family takes her son Jack's ashes with them wherever they go as the whole family feel more "comfortable" when he's around.
She revealed that her kids - Luna, five, and Miles, three - always make sure she remembers to bring the ashes.
She said: "Whether we go on a vacation or something, they always say, 'Don’t forget baby Jack.' And then I have to pack him up. And then we get to where we’re going, they’re like, 'Oh my gosh, he must be thirsty.'"
