Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Having More Kids With John Legend: 'I Would Definitely Adopt'
By Desiree Murphy
Chrissy Teigen is getting candid about life and love!
Sporting a gorgeous embellished Gucci dress with her hair pulled back into an effortless bun, the model glows on the cover of Marie Claire's July Wellness Issue. In her accompanying interview with the magazine, she opens up about her husband, John Legend, their 1-year-old daughter, Luna, and having no shame when it comes to what she posts on social media.
Teigen, 31, and Legend, 38, tied the knot in September 2013 and welcomed their first bundle of joy last April. Ahead of Luna's arrival, the new parents revealed they chose her gender when Teigen underwent in vitro fertilization last December. Now, the brunette beauty admits she would be open to having more kids -- whether that be through pregnancy or adoption -- to complete their family.
"I would definitely adopt or have foster children," she reveals. "But I loved being pregnant. Maybe I should be scared [of having PPD again], but I don't know. It couldn't be any worse than it was – could it?"
Teigen has been suffering from postpartum depression since giving birth to Luna, but hasn't been shy about sharing the physical and emotional changes she's faced with her fans. "I was different than before. Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful," she previously told Glamour, about what it was like returning to Lip Sync Battle. "My lower back throbbed; my shoulders, even my wrists, hurt. I didn't have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me."
She tells Marie Claire that she knows she "should exercise for mental reasons," but jokes that just getting to the gym can be a struggle.
"I need to see Simone De La Rue; I always feel great after I see her," she explains. "In Los Angeles, there's never any f**king parking. So for someone who doesn't already love working out, nothing's selling you on it."
One thing she is sold on, however, is being her true self. Teigen may come across as blunt on social media, but she's not planning on changing that part about her anytime soon.
"I'm the person who had the fake ID in high school and college, and I would show it and be like, 'I'm sorry; it's fake,' and run off," she recalls. "I don't know if it's way too honest or way too anxious -- maybe it's a combo of both."
While speaking with the outlet about Legend, she couldn't help herself from being a little "too honest" there, either. When asked about the one part of her body she didn't think her husband ever saw, she held nothing back.
"John and I had a double date, and we were joking around, and I go, 'John's never seen my butthole,'" she explains. "And John says, 'Are you kidding? Every time anyone does anything doggy style, you see a butthole. I see it every time.' I was like, 'We are never doing it doggy style again.'"
Another thing she won't do? Dance.
"I can't dance," she confesses. "I don't take choreography very well. I will twerk."
