Chrissy Teigen Shares Most Surprising Part of Being a New Mom

One of the things we love most about Chrissy Teigen is that she lets it all hang out in the realest way possible. Her honesty about what it's like being a first-time mama is so real and relatable that we practically feel like she's one of our best girlfriends. And this girlfriend has a thing or two to say about the surprises motherhood brings.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Teigen shared that her newborn daughter's feeding schedule has been the most shocking part of motherhood thus far—and that's counting her hilarious tweet about going home from the hospital in diapers.

“The feeding schedule surprised me a lot. If you kind of do the math, you’re kind of breastfeeding for 10 hours a day total,” she said. “It’s very loving and sweet, but it’s not easy. They just use you for your milk and you just feel like you are just a cow all day.”

Teigen even brought baby Luna, who was born April 14, with her to work last week to a photo shoot where she took a break to breastfeed (because babies don't care what you have going on). As she got glammed up while breastfeeding, she posted a little video on Snapchat.

“It’s hard to work your entire day around getting her the nourishment she needs because they are just little animals," she told ET. Can we get an amen?

In the meantime, we'll just keep enjoying her tweets about breastfeeding!
