Chrissy Teigen is a no nonsense, straight shooter when it comes to life, especially now that she’s a mom. Her latest revelation proves just how real and down to earth she actually is.
She recently sat down to chat with The TODAY Show team, and gave them the inside scoop on how all of these celebrity moms seem to miraculously shed weight after having a baby seemingly overnight.
Ready for the secret? They have help, lots and lots of help!
“Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything,” she told TODAY, “So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are 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.”
Teigen, 30, and her husband Grammy winning singer, songwriter, and musician John Legend, 37, welcomed their daughter Luna a little over 7 months ago. She looks incredible considering she ‘just’ had a baby, but is totally honest about the fact that even though she worked hard, she has a true appreciation for the massive amount of support she had to help her get back in shape so quickly.
The model, actress, cookbook author is very active on social media. She loves sharing photos of her sweet daughter with her 8.8 million Instagram fans, but has also had to deal with haters and ‘mom shamers’ who seem to pick apart every little thing she does. If she posts a photo of Luna in the car, moms comment that there’s something wrong with the way she installed the seat, or has her buckled. If she’s in the kitchen with Luna, comments flood her feed about how dangerously close she is to the stove and imply that she’s a bad mom for not being more aware of her baby’s safety.
Instead of shying away from all social media, she calls out the haters, and ‘shames the shamers’ letting them know moms should be building each other up, not tearing each other down.
