Chrissy Teigen has opened up about the struggles of losing postpartum weight

She was honest AF

This woman must be the most honest gal in Hollywood.

Chrissy Teigen gave birth to baby Luna in April of this year and before, during and after the pregnancy, she has been open about the fertility struggles she and John faced when trying for a baby.

Following the birth of her daughter, Chrissy, like most women felt the pressure to immediately lose the weight she gained from having a baby.

However, in talking to The Today Showthe model revealed that while women may constantly compare themselves to celebrities to lose weight, famous people have numerous people at their disposal to help them tone up.

“Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed anything. So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be out there…

“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.”

She also said that the importance of a new mother’s mental health rather than her body should be recognised, referencing the stigma around post-partum depression in today’s society.

“I think a lot of the mood stuff that happens afterwards isn’t really talked about. Whether it’s postpartum depression, or, for me, some days I wouldn’t know how to cope with work and juggle things.

“I think the mere act of losing those endorphins – I think I was slightly cursed by having such a great pregnancy and being so happy and having so much energy, that the decline of all those endorphins, and all the prenatals and everything I was on naturally made my mood change… There were periods where you get super dark.”
