Ever the open book, model, cookbook author and social media genius, Chrissy Teigen, shares almost everything with her followers – from recipes, to adorable baby scan videos. Her husband, John Legend, and two children, Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, are regulars on her Instagram and Twitter feeds too.
Now, rather excitingly, she and John have announced that a third addition to their family is on the way. Yet at the beginning of her pregnancy, Chrissy (who in the past has bravely spoken out about undergoing fertility treatment) said she had fears her baby wouldn't make it to full-term. This is something a lot of women – especially those who've experienced a tough time falling pregnant – are likely to feel, so it's always incredibly reassuring to hear from a public figure experiencing similar emotions.
Posting her new Marie Claire US cover on Instagram, Chrissy also shared that having surgery had added to her fears, "I did this cover a couple days out of surgery [for breast implant removal], the one I was pregnant for all along. I was so so so scared the aggression on my body took a toll on the baby and just mentally came to terms with it 'not working out'. It had never worked out naturally before so for sure it wouldn’t now!"
She continued on to share how trolling online has impacted on her mental health too. "On top of that, I was struggling hard with some deep dark internet/real life days. I have lived a life begging for people to like me and think I’m cool and funny and their friend, and bam, it felt like everyone fucking hated me. I couldn’t do anything right, say anything right."
Many of the negative comments Chrissy has received lately are from conspiracy theorists, who are accusing numerous celebrities of being involved in a child sex trafficking ring, known as 'Pizzagate'. "I couldn’t leave cute comments on my friend’s pages, knowing they’d be flooded with pizzagate insanity. My own fan pages wrote me, asking if I still wanted to be talked about even though the comments would be super hurtful. And I know. It’s all so stupid. There is so much worse in the world, but man, aside from the world sucking, my little world sucked too."
Journeying through this super intense-sounding time, Chrissy continued on to say she's now coming to terms with the fact that you can't please everyone (especially not die-hard conspiracy theorists...). "Making people happy is my entire life. There is nothing else I wanna do. I guess I’ve come to terms with the fact not everyone is going to like me, and even though I still VERY MUCH DO NOT LIKE THAT, I can live with it. I love you guys a lot and have ohhhhh so appreciated the support the past few months."
We're so glad to hear she's in a better and stronger place now. We can't wait to meet Baby Legend Numero 3!
