Chrissy Teigen has been refreshingly real about her experience with pregnancy. This is practically a public service, when one considers the army of smug, pregnant celebrities who assure us that they still feel super sexy while only crave apples.
Instead, Teigen is the wise-cracking mum we want to befriend at pre-natal classes… especially because it sounds like she’d have the best snacks on hand.
Truth 1: Everything stinks when you’re pregnant.
According to Us Weekly, Teigen has experienced a heightened sense of smell, and no-one is spared from her olfactory observations. Her husband, musician John Legend said, “She tells me my breath smells more!”
Think about it: Legend, who famously croons All of Me in his smash hit song is a man whose life's calling is to make sweet things come out of his mouth. And Teigen say that it stinks. It takes guts to say that, and boy, Chrissy's got 'em.
Truth 2: It's a baby bump, not a burger bump (maybe).
Teigen is the currently on the cover of InStyle Australia and she's pictured cradling her baby bump. Of this, she quipped: "I know, I made fun of preggos who hold their bellies too but it's basically the universal language for 'this isn't solely hamburgers'."
Note Teigen's cunning use of language here: she says "solely". Like us (OK, me), she also can't stop gobbling hamburgers during pregnancy. But there is still a baby in there too, we swear.
Truth 3. Babies are not the same size as fruit or vegetables.
Here's the strange thing about pregnancy books and apps. Each week, the size of one's baby is compared to a fruit or vegetable. For example, this week a pregnancy app told me, "your baby weighs about as much as a mango".
