Chrissy Teigen on Weighing 20 Pounds More After Pregnancy

Chrissy Teigen Is "Coming to Terms" With Not Being Able to Lose the 20 Pounds She Gained Post-Pregnancy

LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 26:  Chrissy Teigen Signs And Discusses Her New Book

Looking for yet another way Chrissy Teigen is relatable? The mom of two weighs more than she did before getting pregnant, and she's OK with it.

The bestselling cookbook author – whose Instagram Stories is filled with videos of her whipping up decadent dinners in her kitchen – took to Twitter to respond to one of the most common questions she gets asked: "How do you eat like this?!"

Her answer?

"Basically I am 20 pounds heavier than I was before Miles," she wrote. "He's 10 months old, I never lost the last bit because I just love food too much. Just coming to terms with my new normal, when I had this certain number for so long!"

She also made a point to note that her new normal includes improved mental health.

"The thinnest I've ever been was right after Luna . . . postpartum depression," she recalled. "I'll take these pounds and this feeling!"

Happy and well fed? That's the motherhood jackpot right there, Chrissy.
