Chrissy Teigan has revealed she turned to alcohol as she struggled with postnatal depression.
The 32-year-old model admits she wasn’t looking after herself after the birth of her daughter, Luna, in 2016.
Famous for her honesty on social media, the wife of John Legend told Women’s Health magazine, ‘After Luna, I was drinking too much. I wasn’t eating as much because I was full from drinking. I wasn’t being good to my body. I remember being so bruised from nothing.’
Chrissy admitted that she found the battle with PND to be ‘torturous’ but began feeling better after she started taking anti-depressants.
'It's like, what could be more important than mental health? What's more important than being proud of yourself and doing the best you can for your body?' she told the magazine.
Chrissy gave birth to her son, Miles, in May and says she is still battling to understand the changes in her body – especially her boobs, after breastfeeding.
'With your second, you just, like, pop 'em on,’ she said. ‘I look at my boobs and I'm like, What the heck happened?
'They face outwards now. They're like giant disks. I don't even know how to hide them. I forget that people are still like, "Whoa!" And I don’t mean to shove my boob in their faces.' Chrissy revealed.
