Since 2013, cookbook author Chrissy Teigen and music superstar John Legend have been open books about their marriage, sex life, and parenting responsibilities. In September 2020, Teigen and Legend announced to fans that they lost their third child, Jack, after dealing with pregnancy complications. “We are in shock and in a deep pain that can only be heard, pain we have never felt before,” the couple said in a statement on Instagram.
Weeks after her devastating loss, Teigen opened up about the traumatic moment in an essay with Medium. “I’m not sure I’ll ever forget that experience,” she wrote. “My mom, John and I both held him and said our goodbyes privately…” Over the past year, the couple has healed from their loss through emotional tributes and a memorial service in 2021.
But nearly two years since Jack’s death, the couple is expecting another child and announced the news in a heartwarming post.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting
On Aug. 3, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram to announce that she and husband John Legend are expecting another child. “The last few years have been a mix of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our homes and hearts again,” she wrote.
The Lip Sync Battle host went on to say that she was nervous to share the news. “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 still too nervous,” explained you. Luckily, Teigen added that her nerves were replaced with excitement and hope for the future. The model’s heartwarming post was joined by a number of her industry peers, including Bravo’s Andy Cohen and actress Lily James. “Yeah!! I’m so happy for you guys,” chimed in Queer Eye’s Tan France.
The news of Teigen’s pregnancy comes a few months after she confirmed she was undergoing another round of IVF. “I post about this in my stories but wanted to let you guys know I’m on a different IVF cycle to save as many eggs as possible,” she said, per ET. Congratulations to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend!
