While dealing with infertility, Chrissy Teigen waited along time to have her child, weathered through many prying eyes and brushed aside the hurt of getting constant queries from strangers, the media and general public all wanting to know when she would start a family.
Soon, she will be a mom of three, with the upcoming birth of her first child conceived without the aid of in vitro fertilization and science.
The model turned TV host and cook book author announced her pregnancy over the weekend.
In a video posted onTwitter the Lipsync Battle host and Chrissy’s Court ‘judge’ cradled her baby bump in a video posted to social media and said, “Look at this third baby s–t.”

Both of Teigen’s previous pregnancies have been through in vitro fertilization (IVF), she said. She didn’t think she could get pregnant naturally.
This time, though, she was wrong. And she was scared, she said.
“Was pretty positive you shouldn’t get your boobs out while pregnant? Pretty sure,” she said.
“So we prayed to the boob surgery gods that everything would be okay. Went to every appointment terrified. Even without the surgery, I didn’t think I could get pregnant naturally anyway. So the odds just felt…bad.”
So far, things have been going pretty well for the soon-to-be mom of three. But she’s still worried.
“Part of me misses the safety of my perfect embryos, created in their little dish. They felt untouchable and safe. Now I feel a bit…eggshelly,” she said.
Still, she said she hopes her experience getting pregnant naturally will give others, who may have struggled with it in the past, some hope.
Teigen and Legend are already the parents of Luna and Miles, 4 and 2, respectively. Teigen has, in the past, been very open with her struggles getting pregnant, even opening up about her postnatal depression she experienced after giving birth to Luna.
