Finally! After lots of fertility struggles, model Chrissy Tiegen and her husband singer-songwriter John Legend are finally expecting their first child.
The outspoken TV co-host announced the news on her Instagram account today.
“John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant 🙂 As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family,” she captioned a black and white photo of she and john on a couch. “We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx”
During a taping of Tyra Banks‘ new panel talk show, FABLife, in September, Tiegen revealed that she and Legend had been struggling to have children.
“I will say, honestly, John and I are having trouble,” Teigen confessed, while cluing everyone in that they had been to fertility doctors. “We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened,” she added. “But my gosh, it’s been a process!”
She also expressed frustration at being asked constantly when she would have a baby when she was trying but not being successful.
“So, anytime somebody asks me if I’m going to have kids, I’m like, ‘One day, you’re going to ask that to the wrong girl who’s really struggling, and it’s going to be really hurtful to them. And I hate that. So, I hate it. Stop asking me!'” She said.
She thanked all those who supported her after that big reveal.
“Regarding the IVF business, I have never gotten so many kind, encouraging words in my life,” Teigen tweeted. “You guys are awesome and appreciated.”
