Chrissy Teigen has confessed she never felt feminine or “particularly sexual” until the birth of her baby girl, Luna.
The 31-year-old model opens up to ELLE Australia
about feeling drastically different after welcoming her first child with husband, John Legend, eight months ago.
“I think you just feel really feminine,” Teigen tells the magazine, during her first post-baby shoot. “I always felt like a bit of a tomboy, and I never looked at my body as particularly sexual -- I wasn’t a curvy girl. But to be able to see my body afterwards, and of course you get, like, hips. Finally, for the first time, I feel like I have a bit more of a womanly figure.”
The new mom also opens up further about her body image, admitting that she’s most comfortable when she’s naked.
“I would much rather shoot completely naked than in a swimsuit, it’s just always been my thing,” she shares. "I’ve never been much of a beach girl. I grew up in Washington -- it’s freezing in that ocean. So it’s out of my comfort zone, and it’s the craziest thing that I’m probably most known for Sports Illustrated, when that’s how I feel the most uncomfortable.”
When she’s not naked, the busy mom says she has her stylist, Monica Rose, to help her on the fashion front.
Buying most of her clothes online, she tells ELLE that one of her biggest shopping tricks is ordering the same item in various colors and sizes, “because I fluctuate.”
