Mom-Of-Two, Chrissy Teigen Gets Real On Finding Balance In Her Demanding Career And The Homefront

It takes a village to raise kids, and Chrissy Teigen is also admitting it. The multi-talented celebrity mom wouldn’t be able to maintain her career if it wasn’t for the help she gets — and like all topics parenting-related, she isn’t ashamed to admit it.

In a new conversation with one of her Twitter followers who asked her to share her personal experience working while raising her two kids, Luna and Miles, the model-slash-host gets real about her work/parenting situation. The fan wrote:

“Can you please talk about working while pregnant, shortly post-pregnancy and away from your babies. I’m watching you on #BringTheFunny and you’re so pro and engaged and focused, and I know your babies were/are small and wanting of you.”

She tweeted:

“Girl I have HELP and a half. That’s it. There is no way I could have done it without it. I’m so lucky to have it and I don’t know how anyone else does it. I have so much respect for all of you. (Also our amazing set provided an amazing daycare room).”
