John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Are Expecting a Baby
John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant As many of you know, we've been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn't been easy, but we kept trying because we can't wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We're so excited that it's finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx
Teigen revealed the surprising news on Instagram Monday night (Oct. 12). “John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx,” she wrote.
The “All of Me” singer joined in the announcement with a very straightforward tweet. “We’re pregnant!” he wrote, linking to his wife’s IG photo.
While the couple can’t wait to welcome their first child, Teigen admitted to FABLife that she and Legend have been trying to get pregnant but have not been so successful. She also said that she has been going through fertility treatments in hopes to get pregnant and pleads with everyone to stop asking about it.
“I just wanted to talk about it for so long,” Teigen also told E! Online. “It didn’t feel right to tweet like, ‘Ugh, doing my IVF shots again.'”
She also added, “Usually I’m getting crap from people [on social media], but the amount of stories that were shared to both of us was really cool to see,” she said. “Like I said, John and I have been going through this for years and it’s something that has been a part of our lives and our friends have known. So it’s just nice to have a show and kind of acknowledge it to people because I felt like I was keeping a secret from them and it was weird. So it’s nice to have all my social media friends know and have them share their stories, too.”
We are more than happy for this couple, who will certainly bring an extraordinary person into the world.
