Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have another baby on the way! The good news comes after a months-long IVF journey and almost two years after the couple lost their son Jack in a devastating second-trimester miscarriage.

The model shared a photo of her growing baby bump to Instagram on August 3. Sporting a black crop top and high-waisted lace underwear, the always stylish Teigen captioned the post, “The last few years have been a blur of emotions, to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again. 1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way.”

In the second part of her post, Teigen reflected on her anxiety around sharing the news after her last pregnancy loss. “Every appointment, I’ve said to myself, ‘ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still,” Teigen shared. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing. Ok phew it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!”

The Cravings cookbook author has been open about her grief journey following her pregnancy loss. Just two months after sharing the news of her miscarriage, she shared a frank post about struggling with her still-present baby bump in December 2020. “Even though I’m no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been. I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again,” Teigen said.

After taking a year and a half to process the loss and enjoy time as the mother of her two oldest—daughter Luna Simone, 6, and son Miles Theodore, 4—the beloved Twitter icon announced that she was trying again in February 2022. “Hiiii. I posted about it in my stories, but I wanted to let you guys know I’m balls deep in another IVF cycle to save as many eggos as I possibly can and hopefully make some strong, healthy embryos," she shared to Instagram. Teigen added, “But also like please stop asking people, anyone, if they’re pregnant. I said this in the comments and got yelled at because the internet is wild but I’d rather be the one to tell you and not some poor woman who will look you in the eyes through tears and that’s how you finally learn.”

If you or anyone you know is experiencing a pregnancy loss, you’re likely going through a flood of emotions, but remember you’re not alone. For some ways to work through the grief and move forward, check out these tips.

Our best to Teigen and Legend along this exciting journey!
