Chrissy Teigen Gets Candid About Accepting Her Post-Pregnancy Body

If there’s one celebrity we can count on to keep things real, it’s Chrissy Teigen. The model and host opened up about everything from stretch marks to hives, to her relationship with husband John Legend, and she continues to share her life with fans, no matter how personal the topic.

This time, the mother of two took to Twitter on Saturday to answer a question about how much she eats, and explain why she’s embracing her weight after giving birth to her second child, son Miles, now 10 months.

Chrissy shared, "how do you eat like this??" - basically I am 20 pounds heavier than I was before miles. he's 10 months old, I never lost the last bit because I just love food too much. Just coming to terms with my new normal, when I had this certain number for so long!”

Chrissy also revealed, “the thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING!”

Chrissy and John welcomed daughter Luna Simone in April of 2016, and baby boy Miles Theodore in May of 2018.

Chrissy has always been honest about her mental and physical health. In an interview last year with Women’s Health, she spoke about coming to terms with her shape.

Chrissy divulged, “Honestly, I don’t ever have to be in a swimsuit again. Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be. I’ve been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight.”

Chrissy appears to be all about embracing the skin she’s in, and perhaps she’ll inspire others with her attitude. If she’s feeling happy and healthy these days, good for her!

Plus, an uptick of people behaving badly on airplanes and in airports amid new travel requirements has us wondering why it’s so hard to follow the rules.
