Since she became pregnant, Chrissy Teigen has become one of my favourite people. She just tells it like it is with no shame—like when she bought herself a perineal irrigation bottle as a push present. And now Chrissy is opening up about her post-baby body.
It’s been three months since Chrissy had baby Luna and she says she’s in a “rut” when it comes to losing the extra pounds. But her hubby John Legend is loving her extra bits.
“John actually loves the new pieces,” she told E News.
Oh, John, you’re the perfect man. Chrissy credits John and other moms with helping her accept her new body.
“You just realize you have to give yourself time and understand that you push out a baby, and it took this long to put on the weight, and it’s not going to peel right off, and that’s OK,” she says. “You shouldn’t have to rush to shed anything. It’s OK! It’s fine. Enjoy your baby. Don’t go crazy.”
Damn straight, Chrissy. Now I will admit I don’t think the model has any pregnancy weight to lose. She looks amazing. I mean HELLO…
But the model says it’s all an illusion.
“I think people think that because I have a strong undergarment game, which I never had before,” she says. Chrissy, please share your undergarment secrets with us.
Chrissy also had some sweet things to say about bonding with her baby girl.
“She comes to me, she wants boobs, she wants food, and she looks at me and she giggles at me and she laughs,” she says.
But Luna has a different reaction when she sees Dad.
“When she looks at him, it’s like these dreamy, weird, different eyes and it’s so sweet to see.”
Yep, I can totally see that.
Chrissy and John struggled for years with infertility and eventually conceived Luna through IVF. They actually got to choose her gender and Chrissy wanted a girl because of John.
“Just the thought of seeing him with a little girl,” she said back in February. “I think he deserves a little girl. I think he deserves that bond. A boy will come along. We’ll get there too, so it’s not like we really have to pick. But he definitely is very lucky to have a little girl. And this girl is going to be so completely lucky to have John as her papa.”
She definitely is lucky!
