Chrissy Teigen welcomed another child earlier this year. She and her husband, R&B singer John Legend, welcomed a daughter named Esti in January. The two are already parents to a 6-year-old daughter, Luna, and a 4-year-old son, Miles.

The 2014 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star is a fairly open book when it comes to parenting topics. She recently chatted about the role confidence plays in motherhood, and Teigen regularly keeps fans updated with social media content related to family life. 

Recently, Teigen opened up to People magazine about her breastfeeding journey. The Cravings by Chrissy Teigen founder shared that she was “so lucky” that all three of her children latched instantly, but added that she also supplemented with all of her kids.

In May 2020, Teigen shared with her loyal fanbase of Instagram followers that she was opting to get her breast implants removed. 

“They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it,” she wrote at the time. “I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort!”

She’s also been candid on the social platform about undergoing breast lift surgery. In the interview with People, Teigen further divulged how her various procedures haven’t impacted her ability to breastfeed.

“I’m surprised I have a drop of milk,” she quipped. “I’ve done the lift augmentation twice. The fact that my nipple came off and was sewn back on, and I still have milk is incredible to me.”
