Chrissy Teigen is pregnant again two years after a pregnancy loss.
Teigen and her husband John Legend are expecting a rainbow baby. The mom-to-be uploaded snaps of her growing baby bump to Instagram on Wednesday to share the good news.
“The last few years have been an emotional turmoil to say the least, but joy has returned to our homes and hearts. [One] Billions of shots later (in the leg lately as you can see!), we have another one on the way,” she wrote in the caption.
The model shared that at every appointment, she conditioned herself “if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce it.” However, she was still waiting to hear her baby’s heartbeat before announcing her pregnancy because she’s too nervous about it.
“I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nervousness, but so far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and great,” she continued. “Okay, phew, it was very hard to keep that down for so long!”
The comments section of Teigen’s post was flooded with congratulatory messages from other celebrities and fans who have been following her pregnancy journey and loss.
In August 2020, the Chrissy’s Court star got the biggest surprise of her life when she found out she was pregnant. In a series of tweets, she admitted she wasn’t expecting to conceive naturally, but while taking her routine pregnancy test ahead of breast surgery, she learned it was positive.
“A few weeks after the operation I did a test. And for many years I’ve been taking pregnancy tests almost every month and praying that one day I’ll see a positive one. Just wishful thinking. I’ve never had a positive one,” she said continued.
She added that the experience made her realize that life is a “way of surprising people when they give up trying.”
Almost two months after announcing her pregnancy, Teigen was hospitalized for complications. She later took to social media to express her sadness after the loss of her son Jack.
In a post on Instagram, she shared snaps of it with her husband while she was in the hospital. She gave birth to the baby, but he did not survive “despite bagless blood transfusions.”
“We are in shock and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she wrote in the caption.
She also included a message for her son, who they called “my belly Jack.”
“To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were fraught with so many complications that we couldn’t give you the home you need to survive. We will always love you.”
The Lip Sync Battle co-host and the All of Me singer are parents to daughter Luna, 5, and son Miles, 3. In February, Teigen said she was seeking in vitro fertilization to father another baby, Us Weekly reported.
