Chrissy Teigen has announced some wonderful news.
She and her husband John Legend are expecting baby number three! This comes almost two years after the couple experienced pregnancy loss.
The 36-year-old model shared the happy news on social media with her followers.
Chrissy Teigen is pregnant again!
Chrissy, who has been public with her fertility issues, admitted she was filled with joy as well as nerves.
This mix of emotions is to be expected after she and John, 43, fell pregnant naturally to a son Jack who was born stillborn in September 2020 after issues with bleeding and placenta abruption.

The loss of Jack was hard for Chrissy and John to get over, but they shared this grief with the world. Now with this new announcement, Chrissy admits that she’s never not feeling anxiety about the pregnancy, but the couple is overjoyed and also excited about the new addition.
“The last few years have been a blur of emotions, to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again,” she said in the Instagram post.
“1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!), we have another on the way.”
“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.”
“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!”
The couple are already parents to Luna, six, and Miles, four, which they also conceived via IVF.
