During a recent episode of her podcast, Emily Ratajkowski opened up to her listeners about a traumatic experience she has been living through. The model shared with her listeners that she is recovering from a massive weight loss caused by certain traumas she has undergone. Here's what you mised.

In her New York Times bestseller autobiography, My Body, Ratajkowski shared personal essays exploring themes of feminism, sexuality, and the power of men's treatment over women in her industry and today's culture. The now best-selling author often addresses these topics in her podcast, High Low With EmRataand recently shared a lot more about her personal traumas on an episode with guest Mia Khalifa.

Ratajkowski sat down with Khalifa and shared that she is on the road to recovery after losing excess weight due to trauma. "I think trauma lives in the body," Emily said. "That's been my experience. I actually go the other way - when I'm really unwell, I lose so much weight. I was down to 100 pounds recently, and it was really, really scary." According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, someone of her size, at 5 foot 7, would be considered healthy, weighing between 118 and 159 pounds. The podcast host told her listeners she has gained weight, and "it's a huge game-changer, and it's how I know I'm happy." That's what we love to hear, girl!

Being the ultimate "it" girl that she is, Em Rata's personal life has really been in the media this year. In September, the Lying and Stealing actress filed from her husband of four years, Sebastian Bear-McClard, whom she has 20-month-year-old Sylvester Apollo Bear with. However, since her very public breakup, the model has begun dating Pete Davidson. Rumors that the two were dating began just a few weeks ago when they were spotted together in New York City. Since then, the two were seen hopelessly in love celebrating the SNL alum's 29th birthday and sitting courtside at Madison Square Garden during the New York Knicks-Memphis Grizzlies game. And according to a source close to Ratajkowski, she "is super into Pete right now" and that their relationship is "chill" thus far. The source added, "There's no pressure to make it exclusive, but she really likes him. Pete is charming and winning her over for sure." So, let's see where it goes!
