Chrissy Teigen's Getting Used to 'New Normal' Weight After Kids, Postpartum Depression
She discussed being 20 pounds heavier and what that means for her mental health.
Chrissy Teigen is often candid on social media, but she recently revealed what it's like "coming to terms with my new normal" after having kids.
Teigen is mom to two kids with husband John Legend, and she has been open about her struggles post-pregnancy. On Saturday, she discussed being 20 pounds heavier and what that means for her mental health.
She tweeted: "how do you eat like this??" - basically I am 20 pounds heavier than I was before miles. he's 10 months old, I never lost the last bit because I just love food too much. Just coming to terms with my new normal, when I had this certain number for so long!"
Teigen added: "the thinnest I've ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I'LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING!"
Many followers responded by sharing their own struggles with postpartum depression, and some agreed that they preferred carrying extra weight than striving to be thin and being left feeling bad.
Postpartum depression affects one in nine new moms, according to the Office on Women's Health. It is a depression that develops due to the changes in a woman's hormones after she gives birth, with symptoms lasting more than two weeks.
