The model and new mom gets real about the struggles and surprises of motherhood

Though breastfeeding is a naturally beautiful process, it doesn’t come naturally for many. It may take a while before some new moms can finally get the hang of nursing their newborns. It can also sometimes be downright uncomfortable and even, frustrating.

New moms often feel blindsided by just how long breastfeeding takes. And celebrities like model Chrissy Teigen are no exception.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight (ET), she admitted how it sometimes kind of makes her feel like, well, a “cow.”

She gave birth to her first child with singer John Legend nearly two months ago. In the said interview, she gushed about little milestones such as baby Luna Simone’s first smile and making eye contact.

“There is no feeling like that first little smile…”

“Her eyes have uncrossed a little bit, and, like, now, rather than looking right through you, she looks at you, which is really nice,” marvelled the new mom. “There is no feeling like that first little smile, your first Mother’s Day, which was so beautiful and sweet to me. The entire day my eyes were on the verge of tears because I was so happy.”

The funny model became more candid when talking about breastfeeding. More on that on the next page!
