If you haven’t guessed it by the headline, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting a rainbow baby! Teigen announced the beautiful and hopeful news on August 3.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Make Major Announcement After Heartbreaking Few Years
Alongside a photo of Chrissy Teigen showing off her burgeoning baby bump, she wrote that “the last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again.”
This news comes after Teigen and Legend suffered a heartbreaking loss in September 2020. As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Teigen was about 20 weeks along when the son they named Jack passed away.
Now, they are seeing the rainbow at the end of the storm.
Earlier this year, Teigen revealed she was going through in vitro fertilization (IVF) in an attempt to grow their family. Teigen and Legend are also the proud parents of Luna and Miles.
“[One] billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way,” Teigen’s announcement continued. “Every appointment I’ve said to myself, “ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still.”
Teigen added, “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing. Ok, phew, it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!”
While opening up about her IVF journey, Teigen asked her followers to stop asking her if she was pregnant. “I honestly don’t mind the shots…” Teigen shared. “They make me feel like a doctor/chemist…but the bloating is a b—ch, so I humbly beg you to stop asking if I’m pregnant because while I know it’s said with excited, good intentions, it just kind of sucks to hear because I am the opposite of pregnant!”
Now, with Teigen’s announcement to the public, people are opening sharing that excitement in her comments section. “Congrats to you and your family !!! Sending you all the good thoughts and love,” Mandy Moore, who is also currently pregnant, wrote.
“Congrats! So happy for you guys,” Kim Zolciak Biermann added, while Kyle Richards wrote, “So happy for all of you!”
Over the last couple of years, Teigen has also embarked on a sober journey as well. It is another real part of life that Teigen continues to be open and honest about.
It’s unclear exactly how far along Teigen is in her pregnancy or if she and her family know the gender of their little one yet. But we couldn’t be more excited and happy for them!
