Model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen announced Wednesday that she and her husband, musician John Legend, are expecting a baby.
“We have another one on the way,” she wrote in a post on her Instagram showing off her baby bump, later adding, “so far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel full of hopeful and amazing.”
Teigen and Legend have been married for almost 9 years and have two children, Luna and Miles.
“The past few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy once again filled our home and our hearts,” Teigen, 36, wrote, appearing to reference her miscarriage in 2020.
After the miscarriage, Teigen spoke openly about her experience, sharing the immense shock and pain she and her husband endured. Her decision to share the news was seen as a blow to a longstanding culture of silence around pregnancy loss, despite 10% to 25% of known pregnancies ending in miscarriage, according to the American Pregnancy Association. .
The couple previously said their first 2 children were conceived through in vitro fertilization and in their announcement on Wednesday, Teigen said the new baby is on the way “1 billion strokes later.”
Teigan had been hesitant to announce the pregnancy, she said.
“Every date I’ve been like, ‘ok if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce it’, but then I breathe a sigh of relief hearing a heartbeat and decide I’m still too nervous,” she wrote.
“OK phew,” she wrote, “it’s been really hard keeping this up for so long!”
