Chrissy Teigen is ready for whatever happens with her second pregnancy, even a second bout of postpartum depression.
The 32-year-old model announced in November that she and husband John Legend are expecting a second child together, this time a boy.
Daughter Luna, who was conceived through in vitro fertilization, was born in April 2016. After her birth, Teigen opened up about her postpartum depression, which left her more emotional.
“Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful. My lower back throbbed; my shoulders — even my wrists — hurt. I didn’t have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me,” she wrote in an essay for Glamour in March.

This time, the “Lip Sync Battle” star said she’s more prepared, but she still knows the risks.
“I had just had Luna. I knew I had an incredible life and husband and family and all the resources necessary. I knew that I was personally unhappy, but I didn’t think that anything was wrong with it because I just assumed that that’s the way it goes. You have a kid, you’re sad, you lose those endorphins and that’s the way it is,” Teigen said at the Create & Cultivate conference in Los Angeles Saturday.
“I do wish that more people had spoken up around me. I encourage anyone who sees something around them to point it out. It took me to finally sit myself down because I think it’s hard for people to point something out.”
She also acknowledged that her situation — including being able to set her own schedule — helped.
“I don’t know how I would have handled it if I were still paying the dues and having to answer to certain people,” Teigen said. “I think I would have been too weak, honestly. I don’t know how you guys do it every single day.”
