Chrissy Teigen is all legs on Self magazine!
While it’s pretty obvious her baby bump is missing from the April issue (we’re guessing she was photographed before she started showing), the model did dish all about her glowing pregnancy for the revealing spread!
She previously gushed about being “happier pregnant,” it wasn’t all easy for her!
The 30-year-old, who has previously spoken up about IVF, said of trying to conceive:
“The big question was why this wasn’t working for us when I was young and he was healthy. I thought, People get pregnant by accident all the time! How does this happen?”
And when going through the process of in vitro fertilization, Chrissy admitted that she and hubby, John Legend, did have to try several times:
“Emotionally, it could be really hard.When you have these high-highs and low-lows, and you’re, like, cuckoo pants… You don’t want to get your hopes up, but of course, you do.”
Thankfully, she had the All Of You singer as a support system, explaining:
“He completely understands everything; he’s a sweet, sentimental, emotional guy. One of the things that saved us is that we never did that real fertility thing, where you’re looking at the ovulation clock and saying, ├óΓé¼╦£Honey, get home; we have to do it right now.’ John would say, ├óΓé¼╦£Let’s never be that couple that has to schedule sex, where we put it on the calendar and say, OK, this is our night.’ So before we did IVF, even if we went a few days or a week, our feeling was, it’s cool, who cares?”
Even after finding out they were expecting, and with a girl, Chrissy admitted to getting a couple ultrasounds a week to make sure her pregnancy was healthy:
“I was a little neurotic about going to the doctor.”
And the beautiful momma-to-be continued to make that her priority! Read on for even more HIGHlights from her interview…
On keeping healthy: “I work out every day. I still feel fit and energetic. In a way, I’m healthier now that I’m pregnant… A lot of classes don’t feel like they’re tough enough on you, but some trainers have you rolling tires and stuff. And I’m like, ├óΓé¼╦£OK, I need something in between that!'” On wanting to write her own cookbook: “It always bothered me when someone would interview a model and say, ├óΓé¼╦£What do you do to stay in shape?’ and she would say, ├óΓé¼╦£I love to eat pizza; I love to indulge.’├óΓé¼┼áI’ve always been the first one to say, ├óΓé¼╦£Bulls├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥! No you don’t.’ So I’ve been hyperaware of that, and I waited years to write a cookbook because I wanted people to know I really do love food.”
On John being good with kids: “He’s been wonderful. He has a big family with nieces and nephews, and he actually knows more than I do about kids. It’s going to be very sexy to see this new side of him.”
On their different parenting styles: “I’ve truly never been alone with a kid. I don’t think I’ve changed a diaper! I’m like, how many times a day do they go?” I’m a worrier, and he’s very laid-back. I like to ask him little questions, like, ├óΓé¼╦£What would you do if our kid is 16 or 17, and we’re at dinner celebrating and having wine. Would you let her have some wine?’ And he’s like, ├óΓé¼╦£Yeah.’ And I’m like, ├óΓé¼╦£I don’t know if I would!’ I am the crazier one in the relationship, and he’s more relaxed, for sure.”
On having a big family — “Four is good, I think”: “I’ve always pictured everyone around the table for the holidays and together once a week. It’ll be heartbreaking if it doesn’t end up happening, but hopefully it will. We’ve got some embryos on hold. I hope that when we do have those four kids, John and I can look at each other and know that it’s us against them. We are going to love the s├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ out of our kids, but we are going to team up and fight in pairs!”
Aww! We couldn’t be more excited about her little one’s arrival!
But definitely not as excited as she and John sound!
