    Speaking with Woman’s Health during a recent interview, the 32-year-old model revealed her struggles.

    Chrissy shared that after the arrival of her first child, daughter Luna, she had began to experience some of the more vulnerable sides of motherhood.

    She explains: ‘After Luna, I was drinking too much, I wasn’t eating as much because I was full from drinking. I wasn’t being good to my body. I remember being so bruised from nothing.’

    Chrissy added that she then began a course of antidepressants and took some time out at a wellness retreat in Bali with husband John Legend – which is where the model shifted her perspective about taking care of herself.

    She shared: ‘It’s like, what could be more important than mental health? What’s more important than being proud of yourself and doing the best you can for your body?’

    Chrissy, who welcomed her second child, son Miles, back in May of this year then discussed her experience with a changing body following her venture into motherhood.

    Chrissy shared: ‘I look at my boobs and I’m like, ‘What the heck happened?’ They face outwards now,’
