Chrissy Teigen reveals a new hobby to help her deal with grief

Chrissy Teigen has a new hobby – and it’s probably not one you’d expect.

The 35-year-old model and cookbook author took to Twitter to share her journey to becoming a horse girl.

Teigen has been very open about her mental health and therapy, after losing her third child last September. She revealed that her therapist suggested finding a new hobby to occupy her mind.

“My therapist says I need something that I do for just me, as I have absolutely nothing currently lol,” Teigen tweeted. “Today begins my journey into the horse world. I hope this dude likes me.”

She said that the horse’s name is Cosmo, though she doesn’t own him.

The mum-of-two has been very candid with her traumatic experiences over the last few months, detailing the trauma she and her family have been through. She even penned an emotional essay on Medium about her pregnancy loss.

In November she took a social media break, revealing she was “in a bit of a grief depression hole”, but reassuring fans that she was getting a lot of professional help.

“When I’m old and grey, I will look back on the last two months as being brutal, exhausting, sad, physically challenging, mentally painful b—–s of a couple months,” Teigen wrote on social media two months after losing her son.

“But I refuse to not find humour in both the rage-fits and the outfits. I already see the leaves as orange instead of grey, realised the sky is indeed blue and not black and horn honks on my forced morning walks only bring me to my knees half the time.”

“I can make it up my stairs only stopping once or twice instead of every other, and can get out of the bathtub all by myself as long as I have the promise John will dry me off.”

Fans have praised her being so open and truthful about her mental health, removing stigma around pregnancy loss and depression
