Chrissy Teigen Has the ‘Utmost Respect’ for Working and Single Mothers

2 minute read

In a new interview with Yahoo Style, Chrissy Teigen gives readers a peek into her home life with husband John Legend and baby Luna. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and author is known for using Twitter to offer glimpses into the secret world of celebrities so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she likes to keep things real.

When not walking a red carpet or posing for a magazine, Teigen is a self-proclaimed homebody. “I don’t go anywhere. We have people over,” she says. Even prepping for events can be taxing. “Some people love getting glammed up. I hate it,” Teigen says. “If I could choose my day, it would be waking up and putting on a face mask and making my skin clean and spending time with my daughter.”

Also known for her love of food and kitchen skills, Teigen is currently working on a follow-up to her 2016 cookbook Cravings. When asked how she “does it all,” Teigen admits she has a lot of help.. “My mom lives with us,” she said. “I have hair and makeup people. I’m not getting up and doing all this by myself.”

She adds: “I have the utmost respect for mothers and single mothers who go to work and come home and make dinner. I do all these things because I have help.”
