Chrissy Teigen Shares Body Positive Message About ‘Coming to Terms’ With Her Post-Baby Weight
You can always count on Chrissy Teigen to be quite open and honest, and she proved that again recently when she shared that she actually weighs more than she did before she had her son Miles.
The 33-year-old took to Twitter on Saturday, March 30, and shared a tweet that revealed her weight after posting about all that she ate the previous day — a feast that included ice cream, doughnuts, barbecue and even a meatball sub. “‘How do you eat like this??’ – basically I am 20 pounds heavier than I was before Miles,” the model wrote. “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!”
John Legend‘s wife continued, “The thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna [her first born]. Postpartum depression.” She added, “I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING!”

This isn’t the first time that Chrissy has opened-up about her post-baby body, as she discussed it with Good Housekeeping. “I think, in a way, we’ve forgotten what a regular body looks like,” she said of the pressures surrounding body image in Hollywood. “There are people out there who are struggling, and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with realizing it’s going to be a bit of a journey.”
She also shared, “I’m not blind. I see my body, I see the difference in shape, I see that I gained weight. I also see with those same eyes that I have a beautiful baby boy and an amazing little girl, and I am very happy.”
Chrissy shares Miles, 10 months, along with her 2-year-old daughter, with her husband, 40, of six years. The Lip Sync Battle host also hasn’t had a problem talking about her children on her social media, most recently discussing how proud she is of her son for having a helmet he was wearing to fix his “misshapen head” removed.
“Such a trooper for three months of helmet,” she wrote alongside a video she shared of the two. “Happy graduation, Miles!” she continued, adding, “Happy helmet-free day! No more helmet, no more helmet.”
What a great mom!
