Chrissy Teigen is no stranger to the media spotlight. The outspoken model and talk show host is not afraid of sharing some intimate moments with her fans on social media.
An advocate for the #FreeTheNipple Instagram campaign, she doesn’t usually shy away from talking about her personal life online, or on camera.
However, there is one question that she is constantly asked and which she is not okay with, at all.
“Do you want kids? When are you going to have kids?” are common questions the 29-year old is asked and she has argued that people need to stop.
In a new clip for her talk show FABLife, which Tyra Banks co-hosts, she made it clear why she and husband John Legend do not have children yet. She also revealed why she finds people questioning their personal life so insensitive.
"I will say honestly, John and I are having trouble," she explains. "We would have kids five, six years ago if it'd happened. But my gosh, it's been a process! We've seen fertility doctors.”
Chrissy explained that since she and John started to see doctors, she understood it fertility issues were not as uncommon as she believed. She now feels that asking any woman the ‘when will you have kids’ question to be quite rude.
“You start learning that a lot of people in your life are seeing these people, and they have this shame about it.
“Anytime somebody asks me if I'm going to have kids, I'm like, 'One day, you're going to ask that to the wrong girl who's really struggling, and it's going to be really hurtful to them.”
Tyra also opened up about her issues with fertility:
“I've had some not-happy moments with that, very traumatic moments. It's difficult as you get older. It's not something that can just happen.”
