"Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything," she said in an interview with The Today show. "So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody's losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there."
"We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies," she shared. "We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that's normal, or like that's realistic."
Celebs may get a lot of help, but they also get a lot of hate -- which Teigen doesn't mind shutting down on social media.
"I just like to call people out," she said. "Sometimes it's just for entertainment of my other followers, and sometimes it's to genuinely see if they know that there's somebody else on the other side of that screen that they're talking to."
"At this point, I know what they're going to say before they say it," she continued. "If I'm holding [Luna] while I'm cooking, or if I'm holding her within 10 feet of a stove top, I've kind of just come to expect it."
"It wasn't that I didn't want to hear criticism, I just didn't want to hear hate," she explained to Elite Daily on Thursday. "It's been… like a self-care move, I feel really good every day. I wake up pretty happy. I don't feel like everyone is mad at me for something, it changes you. There's something about it."
Compassion and standing up for what's right is something she hopes her daughter, Luna, will learn as she grows up.
"I think a lot of people lack empathy and compassion and understanding of other people's feelings, and I think for [me and husband John Legend], we want her to be very emotional," she shared.
"I want her to have passion and things that she loves and to do everything to the best of her ability… and to be vocal about when something's wrong and when she wants to stand for something," she added. "So for us, I think teaching her how to be a good human comes before anything."
