Many may know her as the wife of singer John Legend, but Chrissy Teigen was actually a Swimsuit Illustrated model before she met her husband. Today, the social media star is also a mother to daughter Luna. Known for being witty and the better half of Legend, Chrissy also has a personal side to her that no one knew about.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Chrissy Teigen opened up about her drinking problems. She attends some of the biggest red carpet events in Hollywood, hangs out with some really famous people, so it’s obvious that alcohol would also be readily available to her. But it got to a point where she realised she was drinking too much, as she confesses in the interview. “I was, point blank, drinking too much. 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.”
She continues, “I felt kind of bad of making an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.”
Chrissy Teigen also admits that for her, just one drink is not enough. “Imagine everything we have… Everything is there, always. I don’t know how to go to an awards show and not drink. I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober, but now I get it. I don’t want to be that person. I have to fix myself.”
And the most probable reason why she’s decided to quit alcohol, is because she and John Legend are planning to have another child. Taking to IVF treatments, the long, hard road ahead is going to be pretty hectic for the both of them. And she needs to stay in her best health to get through it effectively.
