Chrissy Teigen on Her Post-Baby Body: Bouncing Back Quickly ‘Wasn’t a Concern’
“I think some people actually get really weirded out if you do bounce back too quickly because you really should be at home with this little thing and taking care of her and not so concerned,” Teigen told PEOPLE Now.
“But you’ll never have the right answer and you’ll never be right to everybody, so you just live and do what you can do best,” she adds.

But when it comes to her own post-baby body, Teigen has no problem discussing how she was personally able to bounce back so quickly.
“I worked out more pregnant than I ever did not pregnant!” Teigen admits. “So for me, to be able to come back after wasn’t a concern.”
“I just wanted to feel good and feel energetic,” she says. “I’m still at that point [after having now-5-week-old daughter Luna Simone] where I can’t work out, which is awesome, because it’s like, ‘Sorry … I can’t!’ ”
And although Teigen jokingly told PEOPLE in February that “a 32C bra would be nice to wear again,” she also said she generally wasn’t feeling the pressure of having to look a certain way during her pregnancy.
“I felt unfit all the time before. It’s nice to relax and feel like you don’t need a six-pack,” the cookbook author said at the time. “I truly embrace this body. I think I might be happier pregnant. I love it.”
