Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting another child, the 36-year-old model and entrepreneur announced on Instagram on Wednesday.
In the post, Teigen showed off her baby bump and discussed in vitro fertilization.
“[T]The last few years have been a mix of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our homes and hearts again,” Teigen wrote. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately as you can see!) we have another one on the way.”
This blurring of emotions is likely a reference to Teigen experiencing a pregnancy loss in September 2020.
“We are in shock and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Teigen wrote at the time. “We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bagless blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.”
Wednesday’s post highlighted Teigen’s concerns about her current pregnancy after her previous traumatic experience.
“At every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘Okay, if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce it,’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief when I hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous.”
She continued in her latest post. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nervousness but so far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and great. Ok, phew, it was very hard to keep that down for so long!”
Legend also celebrated the news on his Instagram, sharing the same photo Teigen posted and simply captioning it a series of red hearts.
The new bundle of joy will be the newest member of the Teigen and Legend family, joining daughter Luna Simone, 6, and son Miles Theodore, 4.
