This is just more affirmation as to why we love Chrissy Teigen so much.
She’s recently opened up about her experience of IVF treatments while modelling.
She and husband John Legend are expecting a baby girl in April, but it wasn’t without some hard work.
Chrissy looked absolutely stunning in the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, but revealed the hormone treatments she was going through at the time of the shoot were hard to deal with.
She told People:
“I was getting my shots and everything in Zanzibar, I had a little medical kit. It was hard because you bloat from it, and you bruise — if I hit the wrong area. That’s the kind of things we had to cover with makeup.”
So excited to announce my 7th appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition – I had to count that a million times before I believed it! My @si_swimsuit family, I love you! There is nothing like being a part of this brand and this issue. My shoot was in beautiful Zanzibar and shot by the incomparable @ruvenafanador, who is just as wonderful, kind, serene and lovely as everyone has ever told me. He thinks about every little aspect of a photo, every detail. HMU by @peterbutlerhair and @joannegair I LOVE you and am so lucky you allow me to be in your chairs! @mj_day and @darciebaum and @ja_neyney @hillarydrezner and @karencarpk – you are my family. I am proud to be in the issue but SO proud of all the work you guys put into this every single year. I just love you all. Jesus this is dramatic I know! And to all my fellow @si_swimsuit girls, congrats on a beautiful issue!!! I will see you this week in MIAMI!!!! I can’t wait to kiss all your beautiful faces!
While they await the birth of their baby girl, Chrissy revealed that if timing was different she would have considered modelling for Sports Illustrated while pregnant.
“John and I aren’t the kind of people to have [a] photo of ourselves in our house, like embracing the pregnant and naked thing. But if it were for a cool magazine and beautifully done, I would do that … [SI Swim], I would have definitely done pregnant!”
In the photos she looks like she doesn’t give a care in the world, when in actual fact it wasn’t so effortless.
We love her refreshing honesty!
