Chrissy Teigen is on the cover of the 2019 issue of Good Housekeeping and she had a lot to share from weight, being a mommy and social media comments.
This is what she had to say.
On her fights with John Legend: “A big thing that helps us is the two different ways that we fight. I get very passionate, I get very loud, and he’s very much a diffuser. But in the end, we’re both apologizers; we don’t like to dwell on the same thing.”
On negative social media comments: “I have moods like anybody else. Some days, I’ll wake up and I’ll read something and it’ll totally not affect me. But if I read that same thing the next day—after a night of no sleep and a really rough day with Luna—it naturally gets to you because you’re in a shittier mood. If I wake up, and I’m like, “Ugh, I feel bloated, I haven’t worked out for a few days” and I read something about my body? That’s the day that I’m gonna speak up. It’s just crazy how judgmental people can be.”
On accepting her body today: “I think, in a way, we’ve forgotten what a regular body looks like. There are people out there who are struggling and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with that being okay, to realize that it’s gonna be a bit of a journey. It’s all about trying to be happy with myself. Because I’m not blind: I see my body, I see the difference in shape, I see that I gained weight. But I also see with those same eyes that I have a beautiful baby boy, and this little girl that’s relentless and amazing, and I am very happy. This is a new thing that I can change within my mind, that I don’t have to be swimsuit model anymore. I get to be a mommy, and I get to cook, and I get to meet incredible people, and I’m happy to be going through this transition.”
