Just when we thought it simply wasn’t possible to love Chrissy Teigen more!
The new mother and supermodel just got exceptionally real about ‘bouncing back’ with an empowering speech for new mums everywhere.
Speaking out in a recent interview with the US Today show, the 30-year-old yummy mummy, who welcomed her first daughter in April, explained how A-listers have an advantage when it comes to losing weight gained during pregnancy.
"Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything,” she began. “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.”
Chrissy continued: “We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies,” she admits of the endless resources available to those in the limelight.
“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."

And while on Instagram Chrissy’s life appears to be the perfect picture, the star also admits that she thinks too much focus is placed on mother’s bodies after birth, rather than their mental wellbeing.
“I think a lot of the mood stuff that happens afterwards isn’t really talked about, whether it’s postpartum depression or really just, for me, some days, I wouldn’t know how to cope with work and juggle things and still have time for a husband and life,” she bravely confesses, adding that she found the time to be tough.
“I think I was slightly cursed by having such a great pregnancy and being so happy and having so much energy, that just the decline of all those endorphins, and all the prenatals and everything I was on and how healthy I was, naturally made my mood change.
“There were periods where you get super dark.”
Unsurprisingly the brunette beauty's refreshing words are being met with praise by both women and mums everywhere.
Never change, Chrissy.
