Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting their rainbow baby after suffering a tragic pregnancy loss nearly two years ago.
cookbook author, 36, announcement on instagram on Wednesday with a series of photos that showed her baby bump in underwired underwear.
“The past few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but happiness has refilled our homes and hearts,” Teigen began in the long caption.
“1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as you can see!) We have another one on the way. Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘Okay, if today’s healthy I’ll announce it’ But then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear the heartbeat and decide I’m still too nervous.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model shared that she still feels hesitant about losing her and Legend’s third child, Jack, in October 2020, but explained how she’s moving through those feelings.
“I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with excitement over nerves, but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and wonderful,” she wrote. “Well, it’s been so hard to keep it up for so long!”
In the fall of 2020, when Teigen was pregnant with Jack, the “Lip Sync Battle” co-host shared that she had to be hospitalized and received a blood transfusion after experiencing excessive bleeding.
Then in a heartwarming post on Instagram, Teigen declared, “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and were not able to give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. That just wasn’t enough.
“Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be there forever,” she said. “To our Jack – I am so sorry that the first few moments of your life were so complicated, that we could not give you the home you needed to survive. We will love you forever.”
A year later, Teigen announced that she was undergoing in vitro fertilization to try to conceive again. She and Legend, 43, also share 6-year-old Luna and 4-year-old Miles.
“I want to tell you guys that I am deep balls into another IVF cycle so that I can save as many eggs as possible and hopefully make some strong, healthy embryos.” Teigen shared on Instagram in February 2022.
“I honestly don’t mind the shots… They make me feel like a doctor/chemist. But the swelling is ab-h.”
The TV producer also urged her followers not to ask her if she was pregnant, noting that she would tell everyone straight when she was.
In March 2022, Teigen continued to keep everyone updated on its progress, revealing An interview with “Entertainment Tonight” That she has finally completed IVF.
She shared at the time, “I feel much healthier and a lot better with it.”
