Chrissy Teigen has revealed her plans for adoption

She has previously spoken out about her fertility struggles and her battle with postnatal depression.

She’s already a mum of one, but Chrissy Teigen has revealed she’d love to adopt or foster more children.

The model gave birth to daughter Luna in April of last year.

In a wide-ranging interview with Marie-Claire, she revealed that she’d like to expand her family with husband John Legend.

“I would definitely adopt or have foster children,” she said.

“But I loved being pregnant. Maybe I should be scared [of having postnatal depression again], but I don’t know. It couldn’t be any worse than it was – could it?”

Chrissy has been open about battling depression after having her daughter.

“I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy,” she wrote in an essay for Glamour earlier this year.

“Most days were spent on the exact same spot on the couch and rarely would I muster up the energy to make it upstairs for bed.”

“I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired… ‘Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom.'”

She has since revealed that she’s been treating the condition and is recovering.
