Good lord, Chrissy Teigen is a busy woman! The model is currently hosting Lip Sync Battle, starring in Vita Coco commercials, writing cookbooks, supporting husband John Legend, and of course, taking care of her nearly one-year-old daughter Luna.

Teigen recently chatted about all the projects she has going on and it’s a lot. Whoever says you can’t do it all clearly hasn’t met Chrissy. The Sports Illustrated model is currently working on a second cookbook (her first was Cravings), which she previously put on hold due to postpartum depression. She told Refinery29,

“I had started the cookbook, and then I had to completely put it on pause because it was a lot for me. So as of yesterday, I started doing really great, and I really got back into the mode of cooking. I’ve been emailing my editor and co-editor non-stop for the past two days making these recipes and brainstorming and I’m having so much fun. I’m really starting to feel like myself again. I’m going to try to knock out a bunch of recipes, go on tour with John and Luna, live on this tour bus, and then come back, do a few more recipes, shoot the cookbook, and then have it out for everybody by the beginning of next year.”

That sounds totally exhausting! We can’t imagine having to bang out a book while riding a tour bus. But for Teigen, it’s old hat.  Plus, it means more time with Legend, who’s rather busy himself.

“I’m excited for the tour because John on tour is a lot less work than him in the studio. When he’s writing, he’s working a lot more. On tour, you do a two-hour show, and that’s your commitment. So during the day, we get to go with Luna to aquariums, and we get to cruise, and I can tweet my followers and ask what they think the best restaurant in that city is.”

And on top of that, there’s caring for her daughter Luna (who’s basically an Instagram star at this point).

Her favorite part of motherhood? Picking out Luna’s boogers! And no, she’s not joking.

“I have this obsession with digging out her boogers with my pinky. I try to be as gentle as possible, but once I see it, I can’t go to bed knowing it’s in there. I need to get it out. I’ve honestly thought about putting my mouth around her nose and just sucking it out.”


Could Chrissy be more amazing? We think not.
