She is (obviously) having an amazing year – from welcoming her third child with her EGOT-winning husband, John Legend, to releasing a cookbook and partnering with Target, she has every reason to be happy.
In her discussion with People, Chrissy revealed that she wanted more than two kids with John and she also shared that her new cookbook was inspired by her then life as a mom of two.
Read what she shared below.
On wanting more kids: “John wants, however, many kids I want. That’s the good thing with John—he is down for it, Are we ready right now? No! I really love having two, but I think when I’m 70, I’ll look back and say, ‘Oh, I wish I had more.’ I can’t see myself regretting having a ton of kids.
She further revealed that she wishes she were able to conceive naturally: “it’d be awesome. I can’t even fathom it because it’s never happened to me. I’m totally fine with it not happening because I’ve been in a position where we’ve been able to control it—the timing and scheduling. It would be chaos otherwise—but I love chaos too.”
On new book influenced by motherhood: “I was more accepting of cutting some corners, and that has to come from having two kids now. I was wanting to put together a meal that John and I could eat together but not be exhausted from making it,” she says. “So a lot of the recipes are a bit quicker and have fewer ingredients. It’s like, ‘Wow, you can tell she’s at a different point in her life when she did this.”
