Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend are expecting another child nearly two years after the couple suffered a miscarriage.
Teigen made the announcement Wednesday on Instagram, where she posted two photos of her baby bump. She wrote that joy “has returned to fill our home and our hearts” after a miscarriage in 2020, which she documented in intimate detail afterward.
“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 her post, she wrote about her fertility journey and how she was too nervous to reveal her pregnancy.
“Every appointment I told myself, ‘Okay, if it’s healthy today I’ll announce it,’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief at the sound of a heartbeat and decide I’m still too nervous,” she wrote. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of a date with more excitement than nerves, 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 with excessive bleeding prior to the miscarriage.
The same year, Teigen wrote an essay explaining that doctors had diagnosed her with partial placental abruption. At the time, he urged people to share their stories and “please be kind to those who open their hearts.”
Teigen’s candor about stillbirth was praised at the time for demystifying a common and harrowing experience.
Legend and Teigen married in 2013.
