Chrissy Teigen is “getting her boobs out” — literally, after the model revealed she is having implants removed.
The 34-year-old revealed the news after some fans questioned why she had earlier posted a video on Twitter of her getting a COVID-19 test.
The clip showed her getting a swab taken from her nose, with her joking about the test, “Honestly loved it”.
Chrissy, who is married to John Legend, later took to Instagram to put the fears of fans to rest after some ended up concerned about her health.
“Hi hi! So I posted myself getting a covid test on the twitter, as I’m getting surgery soon. A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out!.”

Chrissy Teigen to get her ‘boobs out’
Chrissy elaborated in the post that she is going through the reverse boob job procedure in order to feel more comfortable.
It comes after she underwent breast implant surgery when she was a 20-year-old swimsuit model. Speaking about why she got the operation done originally, she told Glamour UK, “It was more for a swimsuit thing. I thought, ‘If I’m going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky!'”
Explaining on Instagram why she is going through the removal procedure now, she wrote:
“They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie!
So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat. Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat.”
Actress and comedian Whitney Cummings was one of several thousand people to comment on her Instagram post, joking that “I think mine got recalled can you ask.”
Teigen — one of the most active celebrities on social media — has already received a lot of support on the Instagram photo, with nearly 900,000 people having liked it at the time of writing, roughly two hours of she posted it.
