AceShowbiz - Chrissy Teigen walked down the memory lane for this year's Mother's Day. In honor of the special occasion, the cookbook author took to Instagram on Sunday, May 12 to share a throwback picture of her during her pregnancy as she expressed her gratefulness for being a mom to 3-year-old Luna and 11-month-old Miles.
The black-and-white photo saw Chrissy stripping to her birthday suit as she bared her baby bump in front of a mirror. She only had a towel wrapped around her head as she crossed her legs and covered her breasts with her arm. "The best thing I've ever made are my babies," the "Lip Sync Battle" co-host captioned the photo. "Thank you for making me a mommy and changing my life forever."
Prior to this, Chrissy shared a couple of nude pictures of her with Luna and Miles during their vacation. In the caption of the post, she encouraged other mothers to share their stories about dealing with postpartum depression, something that the star has been very vocal about following the birth of her eldest child with John Legend.
Speaking about the issue during her appearance on "Today", Chrissy credited her singer husband for being her "strength" as she battled postpartum depression after giving birth to Luna. "I had such a good group of people that were around and people were really watchful of me," she said. "I had really changed. It wasn't just being tired, it was being really sad and hard on yourself and down on yourself. It wasn't just the blues and a lot of us think it is the baby blues you are going through."
The supermodel admitted she previously thought it was "natural" to feel that way, until people around her made her realize that it wasn't. "I just assumed that was motherhood and no other way around it," she added. "Until people around me starting telling me they saw distinct changes in my personality that was really helpful to me..."
