Chrissy Teigen feels sexier now she's had a baby.

The 'Sports Illustrated' model - who welcomed daughter Luna into the world with husband John Legend in April this year - thinks her figure is much more ''feminine'' since she gave birth.

Speaking to Australia's Elle magazine, she said: ''I always felt like a bit of a tomboy, and I never looked at my body as particularly sexual - I wasn't a curvy girl.

''But to be able to see my body after [I had Luna], and of course you get, like, hips. Finally, for the first time, I feel like I have a bit more of a womanly figure ... I think you just feel really feminine.''

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old star previously opened up about how other mothers have unrealistic expectations about getting back into shape after they've had a baby because women in the public eye get a lot more help and support to shape up.

She shared: ''Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything. So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody's losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there. We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that's normal, or like that's realistic.''

And Chrissy knows she will be criticised for doing something wrong as soon she posts pictures of Luna on social media.

She added: ''I can see things coming a mile away. I know that when I post something, if she's in a car seat, I've got to be ready for the million people telling me she's in the car seat wrong, even though she's in there correctly.

''At this point, I know what they're going to say before they say it. If I'm holding her while I'm cooking, or if I'm holding her within 10 feet of a stove top, I've kind of just come to expect it.''
