Chrissy Teigen has confirmed that she is expecting a baby boy with husband John Legend. She had previously said that the last embryo she had through IVF was a boy, but has now officially revealed the sex in an Instagram caption, which read 'mama and her baby boy'.
Teigen revealed the news via a sweet video featuring her daughter Luna in November.
The model (and best person on Twitter) posted a video of her first child to Instagram, in which she can be heard asking ‘Luna, what’s in here?’ in reference to her baby bump. The 19-month-old (and big sister in waiting) then answers ‘Baby!’
The caption displays Chrissy’s trademark dry wit, with a tongue-in-cheek aside that ‘It’s John’s!’
‘Very excited to not have to hide this any more,’ she later wrote in a Snapchat post, while wearing a tight-fitting strapless dress that showed off her bump.
The couple are yet to reveal a due date for the new addition to their young family but Chrissy and John do already know the gender of their second baby. The model and author has been open about their past struggles to conceive, and has spoken at length about using IVF to start a family. In an interview with InStyle last month, Chrissy revealed that their next embryo would be a boy, meaning that Luna will soon be the proud big sister to a baby brother.
‘The first little girl didn’t work, and then the second is Luna,’ she told the magazine, before confirming that she would undergo IVF with the third (male) embryo ‘in the coming months.’
Chrissy had previously revealed the sex of her future child on Twitter. ‘Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah,’ she wrote.
Discussing her and John’s previous struggle to start a family on Tyra Banks’ defunct chat show FABLife back in 2015, Chrissy revealed: ‘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.’
‘Any time 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.’
