Almost a year after her devastating pregnancy loss, Chrissy Teigen is opening up about her postpartum body.
The television personality got candid about dealing with her postpartum look while also grieving her tragic miscarriage in an emotional Instagram post.
Teigen uploaded a mirror selfie from her closet that saw her sitting on the floor, wearing a simple black bra top with matching leggings.
A Tear-jerking Revelation
Alongside the relaxed photo, the model let it all out in the lengthy caption, writing, “it’s really weird when you lose a baby and your body gets paused in time.”
The mother-of-three then discussed the usual stages that come with pregnancy, highlighting that it begins with a “yumyums I’m praaaagnant! weight” then feeling the weight of the baby before finally welcoming the child.
Teigen explained what usually happens after delivering a child, noting that the breasts are ready to feed the child, and the body goes through the works to return to its pre-pregnancy state.
Teigen did well to shame the narrative of women bouncing back after pregnancy as she wrote, “F**K a snap-back,” before getting to the heart-wrenching part of her confession. John Legend‘s wife wrote:
But man. When you lose a baby halfway through, your body just pauses. It has nothing to do. No one to feed. And you’re just…stuck.
The 35-year-old admitted that she was stuck with “saggy boobs” and “a belly ready to bake” before revealing that the state of her body majorly sucked.

Teigen shared she was “extremely diabolically sad” and was left with a daily reminder of her loss whenever she looked into the mirror.
Concluding her outpour, Teigen disclosed to fans that her lengthy write-up wasn’t going to end with a positive mantra, and neither did she want them to shower her with nice words.
She mentioned that although she knew she was badass and a strong woman, she just wanted to be emotional for a while. She ended the post, declaring her love to all.
A Cookbook Dedicated To Jack
Last September, Teigen and her EGOT-winner husband tragically lost their third child, son Jack, after a complicated pregnancy. The couple announced the heartbreaking loss via her Instagram with a heart-wrenching photo of her at the hospital.
The couple of more than seven years revealed they were in a deep pain they’ve never felt before and recalled how they came up with the name Jack.
Since the unfortunate miscarriage, Teigen has been open about her grieving and loss even while dealing with being relegated to the “cancel club” for bullying allegations.

Last month, the “Lip Sync Battle” co-host warmed hearts when she paid tribute to her late son with her newly-released cookbook, “Cravings: All Together.”
The third installment of her Cravings cookbook features new recipes from her and her singer husband. While announcing the book’s release, Teigen shared that it saved her during a tough time.
Also, a page in the cookbook is specially dedicated to Jack’s loving memory, who will always be a part of their family.
