Chrissy Teigen is not your typical celebrity mother. While many celebrities seem to get pregnant, give birth to eight-pound babies then go back to wearing a size zero, every now and then a celebrity mom comes along who is more in tune with what the rest of America experiences during childbirth, labor, delivery, and the post-partum experience. Chrissy Teigen is one of these moms. Even though Chrissy is a celebrity, her approach to motherhood and life has made her relatable to many women across the nation and even the world.
Now, the supermodel and actress is making news coverage for her down-to-earth approach to the weight gain she has kept on since giving birth to her son with EGOT winner John Legend.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend (real name John Roger Stephens) have two children, daughter Luna Simone Stephens, age two and son Miles Theodore Stephens age 10 months. With Chrissy having two children close together, she has experienced weight gain that many women can relate to. She’s also stated that she has kept on an additional 20 pounds since her pre-pregnancy days and she isn’t worried about one pound of it.
