Time for some real talk with our girl Chrissy Teigen! The mom of two opened up to Women’s Health magazine about how she’s come to accept her post-baby body after welcoming two kids, Luna, 2, and son Miles, 3 months.
"Honestly, I don't ever have to be in a swimsuit again," she told the magazine. "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. There's a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit."
So much so, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model has come to terms with everything changing in her life — including intimacy with her hubby John Legend.
"It doesn't matter who you are - even if you're a sexy R&B crooner or an ex–swimsuit model, you're just tired! We still have that passion for each other, but are we doing it randomly in a dressing room? No!" she quipped while referring to her hubby Legend. "We'll get back into it again. But it is funny: If he performs somewhere, and I go, I'm like, 'Oh, he's sexy.' We'll probably have sex that night."
The cookbook author has been vocal about embracing her post-baby body, sharing snaps of her sweaty Spanx to even her stretch marks, not to mention photos of her breastfeeding, another subject she’s more than open to discuss.
"With your second, you just, like, pop 'em on," she said while talking about feeding her son. "I look at my boobs and I'm like, 'What the heck happened?' They face outwards now. They're like giant disks. I don't even know how to hide them. I forget that people are still like, 'Whoa!' And I don't mean to shove my boob in their faces."
