John Legend and Chrissy Teigen announce they are expecting a baby. She’s been open about her fertility struggles.
So it was great delight that Chrissy Teigen took to social media late Monday to reveal she and John Legend are expecting their first child.
The happy news comes just weeks after the 29-year-old model spoke of her heartbreak as was having problems conceiving.
The Sports Illustrated cover girl posted a sweet black and white shot of herself and her musician beau on Instagram to announce they are expecting their first child.
The star wrote: ‘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’
The 39-year-old Oscar winner was getting in some ‘belly touching’ already, putting his hand on his wife’s little bump as she lay on a couch.
Chrissy’s happiness was very evident with the star boasting a massive smile on her face.
Her husband of two years shared the same snap with his social media followers and captioned it simply, ‘We’re Pregnant!’.
The news comes just a month after the model revealed in an episode of her new show, FABLife, that the couple had been trying for years to have a child so had turned to fertility doctors for help.
She told co-host Tyra Banks on September 17: ‘I will say honestly John and I were having trouble. We would have had kids five, six years ago if it happened.
‘But my gosh it’s been a process.
‘We’ve seen fertility doctors and once you open up about those things to other people you learn that a lot of other people in your life are seeing these people and they have this shame about it.’
The beauty said it was painful when people questioned her about when she and John are going to start a family.
‘It’s kind of crazy because I can’t imagine being that nosy to be like, ”So, when are the kids coming?” because who knows what somebody’s going through,’ she said.
‘So anytime somebody asks if I’m going to have kids I’m just like, ”One day you’re going to ask that to the wrong girl who is really struggling and it’s going to be really hurtful to them and I hate that. Stop asking me.”’
Her frank discussion led to Tyra breaking down in tears and revealing she has desperately wanted a child but has been unable to have a family.
While not obvious at the time, following Monday’s announcement it was clear that Chrissy’s use of past tense when discussing her struggles to conceive, most likely meant she already knew she was pregnant.
