Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend are expecting another child nearly two years after the couple suffered a pregnancy loss.
Teigen made the announcement Wednesday on Instagram, where she posted two photos of her baby bump. She wrote that joy “filled our home and our hearts again” after a miscarriage in 2020, which she documented in detail in her aftermath.
“We have another one on the way,” wrote the 36-year-old model and cookbook author, who shares two children – Luna and Miles – with Legend. In the post, she wrote about her fertility journey and being too nervous to disclose her pregnancy.
“Every date I was like, ‘OK, if it’s healthy today, I’m going to announce it’, but then I breathe a sigh of relief when I hear a heartbeat and I decide I’m still too nervous,” she wrote. “I don’t think I’ll ever come out of a date more excited than nervous, but so far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and amazing.”
In 2020, the couple made a heartbreaking announcement after losing their son, Jack, at 20 weeks pregnant. Teigen was hospitalized for excessive bleeding before the miscarriage.
That same year, Teigen wrote an essay explaining that doctors had diagnosed him with partial placental abruption. At the time, she urged people to share their stories and “please be kind to those who are pouring out”.
Teigen’s openness about stillbirth was hailed at the time for demystifying a common and heartbreaking experience.
Legend and Teigen married in 2013.
