Chrissy Teigen is a supermodel, and as such spends a lot of time being described as "sexy"—which she obviously is (all of us are, damnit!). But somewhat surprisingly, Teigen didn't view her body as "particularly sexual" until after she had her baby daughter Luna.

"I think you just feel really feminine," Teigen recently said of having a baby. "I always felt like a bit of a tomboy, and I never looked at my body as particularly sexual—I wasn't a curvy girl. But to be able to see my body afterwards, and of course you get, like, hips. Finally, for the first time, I feel like I have a bit more of a womanly figure."

Teigen also talked about being uncomfortable during her Sports Illustrated shoots, mostly because she'd rather be naked.

"I would much rather shoot completely naked than in a swimsuit, it's just always been my thing," she said. "It's out of my comfort zone, and it's the craziest thing that I'm probably most known for Sports Illustrated, when that's how I feel the most uncomfortable."

Can we please take a moment to applaud how persistently candid, authentic, and straight-up real Teigen is? Clap-clap-clap, love her.
