‘Just Coming to Terms With my New Normal’: Chrissy Teigen Talks 20 Pounds of Baby Weight She Hasn’t Lost

Model and mom Chrissy Teigen opened up about the weight she never lost after giving birth to her second child, son Miles Stephens.

Teigen gave birth to Miles 10 months ago, on May 20, 2018.

And as she revealed on Twitter in the months after Miles’ birth, Teigen is still carrying 20 pounds of the weight she gained while pregnant.

She wrote:

“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’s social media platforms are filled with videos of her cooking for her family, which could be where the question “how do you eat like this??” came from.

The mom of two, who also has a daughter named Luna, continued on Twitter:

Hundreds of thousands of Teigen’s followers liked the mom’s tweets.

And many praised her for being so “real,” while sharing their own stories:

Girl, same. After my second child, I was walking 4 miles a day after a long day, crying over laundry and barely eating. Post partum depression is a beast, and while I was the thinnest ever, I was the unhappiest ever. You’re awesome for embracing the healthier you!

You are so brave and transparent, I love you so much! Thank you for being you and a PHENOM role model for girls

You glow. You look happy and beautiful. You are the center of a loving family. Eat, live your life!

According to the Mayo Clinic, over three million women experience postpartum depression. PPD is a severe and long-lasting form of depression that can affect moms after giving birth.

Like Teigen, PPD symptoms can include loss of appetite or eating much more than usual. Other symptoms are “depressed mood or severe mood swings, excessive crying, difficulty bonding with your baby, withdrawing from family and friends, and more.”

If you or someone you know may be experiencing postpartum depression, please seek the help of a medical professional.
