June 15 (UPI) — Chrissy Teigen says she would “definitely” adopt kids with husband John Legend.

The 31-year-old model discussed her options for expanding her family in the July issue of Marie Claire after experiencing postpartum depression following daughter Luna’s birth.

“I would definitely adopt or have foster children. But I loved being pregnant,” she told the magazine. “Maybe I should be scared [of having postpartum depression again], but I don’t know. It couldn’t be any worse than it was — could it?”

Teigen went public about her postpartum depression in the April issue of Glamour after welcoming Luna in April 2016. She confessed in the Marie Claire interview that she struggles with lingering symptoms, including anxiety.

“Every step I take feels a little shaky. It’s such a weird feeling that you wouldn’t know unless you have really bad anxiety,” the star shared. “You feel like everyone is looking at you.”

Teigen and Legend conceived Luna via in vitro fertilization after struggling with fertility issues. The model previously confirmed her plans to have more children in an interview with Refinery 29 in April.

“I didn’t really have any fears in having a kid, just because I knew that I wanted one and we worked so hard to have her,” the model said. “For me, pregnancy was so great.”

“I’m sure my next one is going to be the complete opposite of Luna. But everyone has their own experience,” she added. “Luna is really the first baby I have ever been around.”

Teigen and Legend looked the picture perfect couple at the 2017 Tony Awards this week. Legend won Best Revival for co-producing the play Jitney, bringing him one step closer to having an EGOT — Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
