() — Model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen announced Wednesday that she and her husband, musician John Legend, are expecting a baby.
“We have another one on the way,” she wrote in a post on her Instagram account showing off her baby bump, later adding, “So far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and wonderful.”
Teigen and Legend have been married for almost 9 years and have two children, Luna and Miles.
“The past few years have been a turmoil of emotions to say the least, but joy has once again filled our home and our hearts,” Teigen, 36, wrote, apparently referring to her 2020 miscarriage.
After the miscarriage, Teigen opened up about her experience, sharing the immense shock and pain that she and her husband endured. Her decision to share the news was seen as a blow against a long-standing culture of silence around pregnancy loss, despite the fact that between 10% and 25% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, according to the American Pregnancy Association.
The couple previously said their first two children were conceived via in vitro fertilization and in her announcement Wednesday, Teigen said the new baby is on the way “1 billion shots later.”
Teigen had been hesitant to announce the pregnancy, she said.
“Every date I told myself, ‘Okay, if he’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.
“Okay, ugh,” he wrote, “it’s been really hard to keep this up for so long!”
