When it comes to her pregnancy, mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen has a great support system.
In the February 2016 issue of InStyle Australia, the 30-year-old opens up about preparing for her first baby — a girl — with husband John Legend. Proudly showing off her baby bump on the cover of the magazine, Teigen says pal Kim Kardashian, who recently welcomed her second child with Kanye West, has actually helped her quite a lot when it comes to picking the right maternity clothes.
“She told me to go stretchy,” she tells the publication. “I always wanted to be the person who showed off the bump because it looks beautiful and I think you should embrace it. Kim does that well and I love seeing that belly of hers and I know Kanye does too—we’re lucky to be with men who find pregnancy sexy. Thank God!”
Though she admits she has her closet filled with maternity dresses in “every color in small, medium, large, in anticipation of the entire process,” Teigen confess she isn’t ready to make permanent plans about baby names or her kid’s room just yet.
“We change the name every day, basically,” she says. “Nurseries have always been silly to me because everyone always wants them to be so beautiful and so perfect, but this thing is just going to barf everywhere and poop everywhere.”
As for how her husband is dealing with the baby’s arrival? Teigen says the two are just enjoying their time together — especially if it means pigging out on a cheat day.
“With me, it’s always been a tough balance—when I work out I can eat whatever I want, but I come from a family where we blow up really quickly; so does John. It’s like we have a bad weekend and you can tell,” she says of eating healthy. “So we are really conscious of having a nice balance.”
“We love being together, and then when he leaves I don’t talk [to him] on the phone. I really hate it. When he goes for work, he goes for work. And then when he comes back we’re excited to see each other again,” she adds about their marriage. “He’s very patient and loving.”
But having a baby isn’t all that’s going on in the model’s life! On Tuesday (Jan. 19, 2016), it was announced that her Spike show, Lip Sync Battle, has been renewed for a third season. With her cookbook coming out in February, you could say that 2016 is definitely Teigen’s year.
