Chrissy Teigen has revealed she’s currently getting botox, but it’s not for cosmetic reasons. The 34-year-old model took to Twitter to explain how it’s helping her during her third pregnancy.

"I get really really bad pregnancy headaches," she explained. "Was thrilled to be cleared to do neck muscle botox along with a crazy combo of beta blocker shots and radio wave frequency something something doctor terms. anyhow man it's just so bad but I see the light finally."

When a follower asked for "more info" about how botox helps, Chrissy replied, "Jaw Botox for my grinding was a MUST for my regular headaches. You can also do behind the brow for migraines. Life changing."

Chrissy revealed that she is expecting her third child with her husband, John Legend, in August and previously admitted that she actually had no idea she was already pregnant when she underwent breast implant removal surgery in June.

On Twitter, a fan asked: "Question... @chrissyteigen just announced she's pregnant. Before my breast reduction last year, they did a pregnancy test. Was she pregnant when she had her surgery in June? I feel like with her bump she had to be pregnant before that, but I could be wrong. I'm confused".

"Oh, it's quite a story. lol... I did the routine pregnancy test you do before surgery. It said negative. It was not negative," Chrissy responded. "A few weeks after surgery, I took a test. And for many years now, I've taken pregnancy tests almost every month, praying to see a positive one day. Just wishful thinking. I never had a positive before."

Chrissy revealed that she opted to take a pregnancy test ahead of John's interview on Good Morning America.

"I woke up with him and was like man, should take my monthly test to be disappointed....," Chrissy said. "...I was not disappointed. But I was scared s--tless. Was pretty positive you shouldn't get your boobs out while pregnant? Pretty sure."

"So we prayed to the boob surgery gods that everything would be okay," she continued. "Went to every appointment terrified. Even without the surgery, I didn't think I could get pregnant naturally anyway. So the odds just felt...bad."

"But what they say so often can be true. When you give up on trying, life has a way of surprising you. In summary, my boobs hurt," she revealed, adding, "Also, you guys have seen how rough these past few months were for me here. So now you know why I just extra appreciated all the love and support through it all, especially since you didn't even know. You just thought I was in stressful internet hell."
