Chrissy Teigen on Breastfeeding: I Feel Like a Cow!

by at .

Chrissy Teigen is going to tell it like it is.

Yes, she may be a new parent, but that doesn't mean she won't go out to dinner and that doesn't mean she won't tell off haters who have a problem with this.

Chrissy Teigen is Pretty

That's why we love Chrissy Teigen, isn't it?

Along these honest lines, the model spoke to Entertainment Tonight this week about life as a mother, with she and John Legend having welcomed a daughter named Luna into the world in mid-April.

Parenthood is amazing, Teigen said. But it's also challenging and exhausting.

"If you kind of do the math, you're kind of breast-feeding for 10 hours a day, total," Teigen explained.

Don't get the Lip Sync Battle co-host wrong, of course. She isn't really complaining.

"We're so happy," she made a point of telling correspondent Jennifer Peros. "It's been really exciting and fun, and every day is so different, and seeing all her little changes is so cute."

Luna, of course, is a total cutie herself. As you can see here:


Back to breastfeeding, though, which Teigen has even shared photos of her doing.

"It's very loving and sweet, but it's not easy," she said. "It's hard to work your entire day around getting her the nourishment she needs because they are just little animals."

She means this in a loving sense.

"They just use you for your milk and you just feel like you are just a cow all day," Chrissy added.

We're guessing that millions of moms, famous or not, are nodding in agreement around the world right now.

Teigen says she may still lash out occasionally, but being a mother really does put things in perspective.

"It does seem all silly now," she says of critics and her responses to them in the past.

"Like, anything that you got frustrated over about before, nothing really matters anymore. And I think you just let things go a little more...

"I'm learning to let things roll off my back a bit easier. I have more important things going on now."
