Upon hearing Chrissy’s secret, host Rita Braver told her: “I don’t think I can have you eating your placenta on primetime,” to which Chrissy was surprised.

“Really? That’s not a normal thing?” she joked. “I’m in L.A., it’s very normal. They grill it here! You can try some of mine after.”

Earlier this year, the model opened up about her struggle with the disorder in the month’s following Luna’s birth.

“I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired and possibly growing out of the role: “Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom.”

“I also just didn’t think it could happen to me. I have a great life. I have all the help I could need: John, my mother (who lives with us), a nanny. But postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do.”
