There’s only a few months left before Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcome their daughter into the world. So it comes as no surprise that the supermodel has been preparing as much as possible for the birth of her daughter. Part of the prep work for the new bundle of joy has been talking with other celebrity moms about what to expect when she becomes a mom for the first time. In a new interview, Teigen revealed that she’s been getting mommy advice from famous reality TV mom Kim Kardashian.
As fans know, Teigen’s husband was discovered by Kim’s husband, Kanye West, years ago and in recent years the two couples have become good friends and have even been spotted going on double dates together.
According to media reports, Teigen recently spoke about her friendship with Kim in a recent interview and explained that Kim has been like a rock to her since she first became pregnant last year.
“From beginning, through the IVF process, [Kim’s] been so helpful … she took us baby supply shopping … talking about every product, and I don’t know baby products,” Teigen explained.
For those who don’t remember, Teigen found herself in a lot of controversy months ago when she revealed that, after years of fertility issues, she was finally able to conceive a baby thanks to in vitro fertilization. Teigen also revealed that she’d chosen the sex of her baby, explaining that she wanted a daughter first because she felt a little girl would help Legend grow as a man.
However, some fans weren’t happy about Teigen choosing the sex of her baby and they openly bashed her online. Although Teigen isn’t ashamed of her decision, she explained that she was shocked that people were upset about her personal decision.
“To me it was just another conversation I was having, I didn’t realize that it kind of came across like we were the first people to ever do it, to choose a little girl, and obviously that’s not the case … I have so many friends that are so open about it … it didn’t seem like a big deal,” Teigen explained.
But that’s not all that she talked about. Teigen also discussed Kim’s recent nude photo scandal, in which a bevy of fans and celebs bashed Kim for posting a nude photo of herself. To everyone’s surprise, Kim actually clapped back at her critics and penned a letter about fighting back against slut-shaming and body-shaming.
According to Teigen, she was just as surprised as everyone else that her friend chose to publicly defend herself.
“I was surprised that she actually went back at it. I love that, I live for that stuff … everyone has the right to their opinion, but also we have the right to fire back too,” Teigen said.
Well, we’re happy that Kim and Teigen have each other to lean on. And we can’t wait for Teigen to become a mommy this spring.
