It turns out that it was a fake, according to TMZ, which obtained a letter from the lawyer of Crawford's photographer, who claims that the image was not only stolen but also altered.
While most of us praised Crawford for taking pride in what we believed were stretch marks and other signs of general living and motherhood, the 49-year-old model is actually rocking a pretty amazing physique.
Her husband Rande Gerber even posted a pic of his wife in a bikini taken on Valentine's Day (above), shortly after news of the altered image broke—and let's just say the real Crawford looked way different from the circulated image.
What stretch marks? What sun damage?
And although the truth perhaps distances Crawford from the likes of us regular moms, we can still admire her for her impeccable style, the fact that she graduated high school as valedictorian and because she is in the middle of raising two teens—which, in the world of moms, makes her even more relatable.
