WHEN SHE WAS CALLED OUT ON HER BABY-HOLDING SKILLS
The model and cookbook author clapped back at a Twitter user who accused her of holding 6-month-old daughter Luna Simone incorrectly.

WHEN SHE OPENED UP ABOUT HER MOOD CHANGE AFTER BABY
"I think a lot of the mood stuff that happens afterwards isn't really talked about, whether it's postpartum depression or really just, for me, some days, I wouldn't know how to cope with work and juggle things and still have time for a husband life," she told Today. "And that was really tough for me, and I think just the mere act of losing those endorphins, I think I was slightly cursed by having such a great pregnancy and being so happy and having so much energy, that just the decline of all those endorphins … naturally made my mood change. There were periods where you get super dark."

AND THEN PENNED AN HONEST ESSAY ABOUT HER BATTLE WITH POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
Teigen got very personal in the April 2017 issue of Glamour, penning an essay in which she opened up about struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety after Luna's birth. "Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful. My lower back throbbed; my shoulders — even my wrists — hurt. I didn’t have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me." She continued, "Most days were spent on the exact same spot on the couch and rarely would I muster up the energy to make it upstairs for bed. John would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row. I started keeping robes and comfy clothes in the pantry so I wouldn’t have to go upstairs when John went to work. There was a lot of spontaneous crying." She credited John with being her rock, and said she opened up because she wants other moms to know they're not alone. "Postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do."

WHEN SHE SPOKE ABOUT UNREALISTIC POST-BABY BODIES
"Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything," the Lip Sync Battle host revealed, citing her quick body transformation after welcoming daughter Luna. "So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody's losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there." She added: "We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that’s normal, or like that's realistic."

"it keeps me nice and not-racist so sure, give it a go."

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took on breakup rumors the only way she knows how: with a sense of humor.
