Chrissy Teigen isn’t happy with just one kid. She says she wants a huge team and wants to spend her 30s having babies. She says she has always imagined a big family around the table during holidays. “I think I’ll probably be pregnant all through my 30s,” she told the mag. “I’ve always pictured everyone around the table for the holidays and together once a week. It’ll be heartbreaking if it doesn’t end up happening, but hopefully it will. We’ve got some embryos on hold,” E! has reported.
Teigen says she wants at least four kids and that adds a dog to the bunch too. She says she is going to have a great time fighting in pairs. That seems like some plan! She says John Legend is her “partner in crime” and that they make for perfect parents.
Chrissy Teigen is on the cover of Self and has answered several questions that come from her fans. Self magazine says Teigen is enjoying her “nesting” phase. The Sports Illustrated model is known for her funny Instagram posts like the following: “I am horrifically ballsy in every way except telling a waiter they got my order wrong.” She is surely not shy to share her real self with the fans (Teigen has three million of them on Twitter and Instagram put together. “If I’m passionate about something, I’ll say it and deal with the consequences later,” she says about her penchant for being honest.
Teigen has a spiritual side and she says it makes her feel better. She says pregnancy was a bit hard given that she had to try quite a few times before she and John were successful. “You don’t want to get your hopes up, but of course, you do,” Teigen says.
Teigen talks very tenderly about her husband, the R&B singer John Legend. She says he has always been by her side. She says he is a very sentimental guy and and cares for her a lot. However, Teigen talked about her struggle with IVF. She says she and her husband knew they were never going to put a schedule on sex. “One of the things that saved us is that we never did that real fertility thing, where you’re looking at the ovulation clock and saying, ‘Honey, get home; we have to do it right now.’ John would say, ‘Let’s never be that couple that has to schedule sex, where we put it on the calendar and say, OK, this is our night.’ So before we did IVF, even if we went a few days or a week, our feeling was, it’s cool, who cares?”
Teigen loves to stay fit and says she works out every day. Wow! That’s some dedication. She says when it comes to workouts, she loves them to be tough. She just came up with a cookbook which is very close to her heart. Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat is something she wanted to write even if it defied grammar, she says.
She says she was afraid she would not be taken seriously as a food writer. “I always thought the name of my first book would be The Insecure Chef, because when I started cooking I was so nervous,” she says. Teigen also talked about her love for pizza. She says she loves to indulge. She says she really does love food and eats what she can, but likes to stay active.
