Chrissy’s body takes a back seat for her baby


CHRISSY Teigen says her body “will never be the same” after giving birth to her 10-month-old daughter, Luna.

The 31-year-old model, who is married to singer John Legend, says her trim figure changed and her bones feel a bit weaker, but she’s comfortabl­e in her own skin.

The brunette beauty said: “I’m comfortabl­e with my body, but I know that it will never be the same. Luna has changed a lot about my body. My bones feel a bit weaker, my back, everything. But I’m okay with it. I have this little face to look at all the time. Whatever happened to my body, it’s worth it.”

Teigen took a step back from modelling during her pregnancy as she wanted to enjoy the experience and embrace her growing baby bump.

Speaking to People magazine, she said: “When I was pregnant, I stepped away from any modelling. I didn’t want to be like: ‘Oh my God! I have a Victoria’s Secret show coming up!’ I needed to focus on being pregnant, having a healthy baby and being a mom. That was my priority, not how I looked.”

The Lip Sync Battle host refused to let the pressure to lose weight get to her after Luna was born in March last year.

“I had something more important going on than how my body looked. I wanted to get back to being active and healthy again, but I wasn’t going to obsess about it.” – Bang Showbiz
