Pregnant Chrissy Teigen seems to have trouble with her tongue due to sour candy cravings.
On Thursday, she revealed that she has been eating a lot of tart-tasting treats and because of that her tongue has started peeling off.
The 34-year-old author gave fans a glimpse of the state of her tongue in a video clip posted on her Instagram account, cautioning fans, “Fair warning: Do not continue this video if you’re squeamish.”
Showing off discolored patches on her tongue, the Chrissy’s Court star continued, “I told you I’m eating so much sour candy that my tongue is falling off. Look at this.”
“It’s literally falling off because I eat so much in the night. I eat sour straws. I suck on them and then after them, I have my Blow Pops,” she added. “It’s just falling off, my tongue.”
Teigen went on to say that it has been difficult for her to lunch due to her tongue, stating, “I’m trying to eat my noodles, but it’s so painful.”
“It’s hard to eat anything hot, spicy especially,” she continued. “I don’t know how to eat it. I think I’ll have to put saran wrap on my tongue or something, like a tongue condom of some sort. It hurts.”
On Sunday, Teigen revealed her cravings for sour candy, asking her fans on Twitter for recommendations.
“I am a crazy candy freak and while I prefer sour, I’m open to anything,” the model tweeted. “Are there any lesser-known candies you guys I think I should be eating? peanut butter take 5 was extremely eye opening for me.”
On Tuesday, she said she’s “really crazy addicted to Blow Pops right now, mainly green apple. Also, ham-and-cheddar Lunchables. I heat up each piece of meat so I don’t get Listeria, because you’re not supposed to have deli meat pregnant.” Teigen is expecting her third child with her husband, John Legend.
