It’s hard to shed a tear for Chrissy Teigen, a glamorous, trim and wealthy woman who seems to have it all: A fabulous career as a supermodel and TV personality with a cookbook-writing sideline, a loving hubby in musician/actor/songwriter John Legend and an adorable baby girl. At 31 years old, she’s in her prime.
But don’t be so critical of Teigen because she’s beautiful and successful. She’s no different from the rest of us.
At what appeared to be the happiest time of her life, the stunner was hit with a crippling one-two punch of anxiety and sadness so severe, it nearly sapped her ability to work and her will to soldier on. It’s all because of something she shares with ladies around the globe, and even some dudes.
Postpartum depression is real. And it’s hell.
“Getting out of bed to set was painful,’’ she shared in an essay in the April issue of Glamour magazine. “My lower back throbbed; my shoulders — even my wrists — hurt. I didn’t have an appetite, would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me.
“One thing that really got me was just how short I was with people.”
The funk set in after the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model went back to work last August as co-hostess of Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle’’ after giving birth in April to her and her 38-year-old husband’s first child, Luna Simone Stephens.
“When I wasn’t in the studio, I never left the house. I mean, never.
Not even a tiptoe outside.’’ she wrote. She spent frequent, often sleepless, nights on a couch, sometimes with Legend. She threw up a lot. Teigen joins celebrities who’ve come forward with confessions of postpartum issues, including Brooke Shields, Courteney Cox and Gwyneth Paltrow. If it can strike them, it can afflict anyone.
After I had my now-teenage daughter, I slid into anxiety and anger.

“I really don’t know what my t–s have to do with it,’’ the British-raised actress, model and United Nations Women’s Goodwill ambassador blasted critics, who’ve called her a feminist hypocrite, in an interview with Reuters promoting her new Disney live-action flick “Beauty and the Beast.’’
Also drawing mounds of attention was rap star Nicki Minaj, 34, who sat front and center at a Paris Fashion Week show last weekend rocking a bare left breast covered only by a shiny silver designer pasty.
It’s all about women’s empowerment.
Streisand’s POTUS belly
Barbra Streisand is making President Trump’s election all about her waistline.
“Donald Trump is making me gain weight,’’ tweeted the leftist musical icon, 74. “I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup.’’
She also wrote, “Trump just accused Obama of tapping his phones.’’ (He accused the former president of having his “wires tapped’’ during the presidential campaign.) “Seriously crazy times. Time for more pancakes.’’
It’s nice to know she eats.
Hope stars have met their match
It seems as if J.Lo and A-Rod are a thing.
Former Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez, 41, and superstar Jennifer Lopez, 47, who have in common their Latin heritages, fame and love of New York City, as well as divorces and kids, are dating, Page Six reports.
Meanwhile, after separating in 2015 amid rumors that her hub cheated with the nanny, Jennifer Garner, 44, at least for now, has called off the divorce from her mate of nearly 12 years, Ben Affleck, 44, to work on their union, People magazine reports.
I’m rooting for J-Rod and Bennifer.
