Chrissy Teigen is the queen of keeping it real with fans, and her latest revelation is helping her keep hold of that crown.
The model claimed she’s ’20 pounds heavier’ since giving birth to her son Miles ten months ago, but she’s happy to embrace the change.
Chrissy, who also has two-year-old Luna with her husband John Legend, explained the reason why she’s not bothered by the fluctuation in her figure.
The ‘Lipsync Battle’ star tweeted: ‘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!’ she explained.
And she was quick to point out that her new normal really is suiting her just fine as she added, ‘The thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING! (sic)’
Preach it, Chrissy!
In fact, she’s already admitted she feels sexier now she’s had children and Chrissy reckons her figure is more ‘feminine’.
‘I’ll always felt like a bit of a tomboy, and I never looked at my body as particularly sexual – I wasn’t a curvy girl,’ she told Elle Australia.
‘But to be able to see my body after [I had Luna], and of course you get, like, hips. Finally, for the first time I feel like I have a bit more of a womanly figure… I think you just feel really feminine.’
Meanwhile the 33-year-old previously highlighted how other mothers now have unrealistic expectations about getting back into shape after giving birth because women in the public eye manage to seemingly shape up easily.
‘Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything. So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing it so quickly, but we just happened to be the ones who are out there,’ she told the Today Show.
‘We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that’s normal, or like that’s realistic.’
