Chrissy Teigen On Modelling After Baby: ‘It Will Never Be The Same’

Chrissy Teigen likes to say it how it is!

And when it comes to being realistic about her body after giving birth to her daughter Luna, ten months, the 31-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimwear model says that while she feels comfortable in her own skin, she acknowledges the differences to her body.

‘I Stepped Away From Modelling’

“When I was pregnant, I stepped away from any modelling,” she tells People magazine.

“I didn’t want to be like, ‘Oh my God, I have a Victoria’s Secret show coming up.’ I needed to take that out of the picture and focus on being pregnant, having a healthy baby, and being a mum. That was my priority, not how I looked.”

In fact, Chrissy – who is married to John Legend – says she blocked out the pressure to lose the baby weight.

“I had something much more important going on than how my body looked,” she says.

“I wanted to get back to being active and healthy again, but I wasn’t going to obsess about it. I worked out, I took care of myself, but I didn’t obsess about it.”

Luna Is Worth It

“I’m comfortable with my body, but I know that it will never be the same,” she continues.

“Luna has changed a lot about my body. My bones feel a bit weaker, my back, my everything. But I’m okay with it.

“I have this little face to look at all the time. Whatever happened to my body, it’s completely worth it.” 

We agree with you, Chrissy!
