Honest and hot! Chrissy Teigen bared her bod for the cover of Women’s Health UK’s Naked Issue and admitted she has to work for her famous figure.
“I used to take pride in the fact I didn’t have to work out, and then I hit that age where you have to,” the 29-year-old Sports Illustrated model told the mag. “I want to drink champagne and have hearty dinners, so I would rather work out for an hour and be able to do what I want. I’ve always had to watch myself. My family is not naturally thin and we put on weight quickly. I find low-carb works for me.”
The model, who has a cookbook due out next year, revealed she gained 11 pounds in five weeks working on her recipes and added: “My tummy has always been my problem area. I’ve never seen an ab, no matter how many crunches I do.”
Despite keeping up a fitness routine — the foodie credits A-list trainer Simone De La Rue for her workouts — John Legend’s wife is looking forward to the day she’s pregnant so she can give herself a break.
“I’m waiting for things to slow down, but things don’t seem to be slowing down, ever, so I think, ‘Just have one and deal with it.’ I’d love to have an excuse to be bigger,” she told the mag. “People will know as soon as I’m pregnant because I’ll stop drinking.”
