The model, 32, revealed in a recent interview that she ate her placenta after welcoming her second baby, son Miles Theodore, with her husband John Legend in May, which she believes is the reason she felt primarily happy the most recent time around.
During her appearance on CBS Sunday Morning‘s 40th anniversary special, which will air Friday, the Lip Sync Battle host also discussed her relationship with her social-media fans (she has about 30 million followers between Twitter and Instagram) and how her idea of body image has changed within the past few years.
When Teigen’s host, Rita Braver, expressed skepticism about the placenta practice, the mom of two responded with a laugh, “Really? That’s not a normal thing? I’m in L.A., it’s very normal. They grill it here. You can try some of mine after.”
“I think people on social media are my friends,” she told Braver about the reason she’s been so open about her parenting and fertility struggles online. “And I think they deserved to know. I don’t know, is that so weird?”
Even though Teigen has posed in a swimsuit for Sports Illustrated in years past (one time was only 10 months after she gave birth to her first child, now-2-year-old daughter Luna Simone), that’s not a priority for her anymore.
“I really prefer being happy and getting to eat things that I love, still wanting to be healthy,” she explained. “But I just don’t care about looking good in a swimsuit anymore. I guess that’s the only way to put it.”
