Chrissy Teigen’s got more to get off her chest.

The model and cookbook author has opened up in an Instagram post where she shared her dark mental and emotional state during her shoot with Marie Claire magazine just days after her breast reduction surgery – all while she was pregnant with her third child!

“I was so so, so scared. The aggression on my body took a toll on the baby and I just mentally came to terms with it ‘not working out’” she says in the caption. “It had never worked out naturally before so for sure it wouldn’t now!”

She’s been candid about her and husband John Legend’s struggles to fall pregnant, and using IVF to help conceive their children Luna (4) and Miles (2).

Chrissy’s sass and biting wit on everything from cooking, parenting, her husband and politics and current affairs has made her bait for online trolls. She was recently the subject of unfounded claims that she’s linked to the Jeffery Epstein sex scandal.

Despite her sunny exterior, it all took a toll.

“I was struggling hard with some deep dark internet and real life days,” she wrote in her post. “I have lived a life begging for people to like me and think I’m cool and funny and their friend, and bam, it felt like everyone f**king hated me. I couldn’t do anything right, say anything right.”

In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, she reveals how online hate and police brutality in the US led her to make the decision to start seeing a therapist during quarantine, after rejecting the idea for years. She was advised that she needed to take a break from social media for her well-being.

I did this cover a couple days out of surgery, the one I was pregnant for all along. I was so so so scared the aggression on my body took a toll on the baby and just mentally came to terms with it “not working out”. It had never worked out naturally before so for sure it wouldn’t now! On top of that, I was struggling hard with some deep dark internet/real life days. I have lived a life begging for people to like me and think I’m cool and funny and their friend, and bam, it felt like everyone fucking hated me. I couldn’t do anything right, say anything right. I couldn’t leave cute comments on my friend’s pages knowing they’d be flooded with pizzagate insanity. My own fan pages wrote me, asking if I still wanted to be talked about even though the comments would be super hurtful. And I know. It’s all so stupid. There is so much worse in the world, but man, aside from the world sucking, my little world sucked too. Making people happy is my entire life. There is nothing else I wanna do. I guess I’ve come to terms with the fact not everyone is going to like me, and even though I still VERY MUCH DO NOT LIKE THAT, i can live with it. I love you guys a lot and have ohhhhh so appreciated the support the past few months. Now you know what it meant to me! Thank you @marieclairemag, for taking a risk and putting me on your cover - I know your comments bout to be A MESS. ?? . .

There’s nothing else I wanna do,” the soon-to-be mom of three continued in her post. “I guess I’ve come to terms with the fact that not everyone is going to like me, and even though I still very much do not like that, I can live with it.”

We love you too, Chrissy!
