Chrissy Teigen
has always been a cutie ... even with chicken pox!

The Sports Illustrated model posted the most adorable throwback picture of her much younger self via Instagram on Thursday.

Appearing bleary-eyed and covered in pox, Chrissy still looks like a beauty despite battling the common childhood illness. 

"Don't be fooled by the pox that I got," the 28-year-old hilariously captioned the candid snap. 

We're also loving Teigen's adorable T-shirt which reads, "It's not easy being cute." Pretty appropriate, right?
