Chrissy Teigen is opting for Red Bull over rosé... and she has a good reason to do so. The American model recently revealed that she struggled to control her alcohol consumption but said she is now trying to clean up her act.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, the 31-year-old explained that she and her husband John Legend attended a Bali wellness retreat in July so she could reset her body and cut back on her drinking. "I was, point blank, just drinking too much," the mother-of-one said. "I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show."
The result most often was Teigen "making kind of an ass" of herself in front of people she respected. "You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.
"Everything is there, always. I don't know how to go to an awards show and not drink," the spokesperson for Captain Morgan and Smirnoff explained.
The couple recently returned from a vacation in Italy with their one-year-old daughter Luna Simone Stephens, and are planning to head out on another holiday soon. "We're going to try to have a child," she said. "This is for us to try to get in the zone of 'let's travel, let's be away together, let's see our closest friends,' and then we're going to have to do something super hard, which is the IVF process, all over again."
Teigen and Legend conceived their first child through in-vitro fertilisation. After the birth of her daughter, Teigen had to begin treatment for postpartum depression.
"I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy," she told Glamour back in March.
"What basically everyone around me — but me — knew up until December was this: I have postpartum depression."
She was later diagnosed with PPD and anxiety and began taking medication, which reduced the symptoms. "Like anyone, with PPD or without, I have really good days and bad days. I will say, though, right now, all of the really bad days — the days that used to be all my days — are gone," the cook-book author said.
