Chrissy Teigen on Weighing 20 Pounds More After Pregnancy

Chrissy Teigen Is "Coming to Terms" With Not Being Able to Lose 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 weights 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.
