Chrissy Teigen "doesn't care" about looking good in a swimsuit anymore.

The 32-year-old model - who has Luna, two, and Miles, three months, with her husband John Legend - prefers being able to "eat things thatshe loves" rather than focus on her figure.

Speaking to Rita Braver for 'Sunday's Best: Celebrating 40 Years of CBS Sunday Morning', she said: "I really prefer being happy and getting to eat things that I love, still wanting to be healthy. But I just don't care about looking good in a swimsuit anymore. I guess that's the only way to put it."

Following two pregnancies and a battle with her health, Chrissy now has a completely different perspective on her body and no longer cares if she never puts on another bikini.

She added: "Honestly, I don’t ever have to be in a swimsuit again. Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be. I’ve been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realising it was a swimsuit-model weight.

There’s a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit." Chrissy previously confessed she was "worried" about getting postpartum depression for a second time when she was expecting her son.

She said: "Do I worry about it with this little boy? I do. But I also know that when it does happen - if it does - I'm so ready for it. I have the perfect people around me for it. That's why I stand for a real core group of people around me."
