Despite the fact that Kim Kardashian has given her plenty of advice regarding maternity style, Chrissy Teigen has managed to stumble upon a few surprises in her pregnancy — specifically, weird mouth situations.
At Sports Illustrated's 2016 Swim Beach party yesterday, Racked Miami editor Ashley Brozic caught up with the model to talk about her new cookbook Cravings, her actual current cravings (Cowgirl Creamery's Mt. Tam cheese, for those interested), and how she and husband John Legend plan dress their daughter ("I hope she's one of the ones that wants to wear a princess costume or a different funny costume every day").
One of the most surprising things she found about being pregnant, however, wasn't cheese-related: "My gums hurt, it's really weird," Teigen told Racked. "It's the things that you didn't expect, like your gums bleeding randomly. I'll just smile and all of a sudden someone's like ‘Oh my god, you're bleeding!'"
Should you ever meet a pregnant woman with bloody gums, just tell them it's okay — Chrissy Teigen understands.
