R&B crooner John Legend and his model and TV host wife Chrissy Teigen are not strangers to sharing affection for one another at events and definitely on social media. The couple are expecting their first child together after a few bouts of infertility and other struggles to conceive and maintain a pregnancy, Teigen once shared.
The internet was abuzz again recently over a tender moment shared on Instagram of the “Ordinary People” singer and multi-award winning artist kissing Teigen’s growing bump.
Chrissy Teigen looked radiant on the February cover of InStyle Australiaand in the inside cover shots. The TV host and model is expecting her first child, a daughter, with her husband John Legend.
The photos give out an aura of outdoor, romantic yet natural. It’s awesome that the magazine found such unique pieces that flatter with such style and sophistication. It is also great that they went with national designers from Australia. So many shoots feature the usual suspects from Paris, France and Milan, Italy.
The FABLife co-host revealed in the cover story that her good friend Kim Karadashian gave her maternity wear advice.
“She told me to go stretchy,” Tegein shared with the magazine. We agree! Great advice. Stretchy is quite forgiving yet accentuates the curves.
How simply elegant is this white Bally‘s shirt dress?! Owww. It is accessorized with XIV bangles and very exotic Christian Louboutin straw booties. They give me that “Outback” vibe. They fit in perfectly with the rustic shoot. SwoonTegien also confessed that she and Legend haven’t settled on a baby name yet. “We change the name every day, basically,” the LipSync Battle host said while adding that they haven’t done much work on the nursery either.
We are also loving this gorgeous flowy black and white cotton and silk maxi dress by Australian designer Maticevski. I love the four bold white Dinosaur Designs white resin bangles which is perfect accompaniment to the up swept bun and bare feet. Perfect!
And she gets to be flirty in this black cotton dress that looks like intertwined chains made by Romance Was Born, another Australian designer. And are those asps we see on that Giuseppe Zanotti sandals? Could be. They are hawt!
The web is abuzz about first-time, mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen‘s very cute look today while attending The Hollywood Reporter‘s Beauty Dinner in Los Angeles, California at The London Hotel on Wednesday, November 11 this week. The intimate event celebrated the launch of the double cover feature with one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Reese Witherspoon and her make up artist, Molly R. Stern and another frequent featured mom Taraji P. Henson and her make up artist Ashunta Sheriff.
Some style networks are saying Teigen is channeling Kim Kardashian who is known for wearing sheer clothes this pregnancy.
We love the green lace Femme d’Armes shirt over a forest green bra tucked into a pair of very smart black Farfetch by Stella McCartney pants and paired with some cute black pumps while toting a black Kotur box clutch.
We’ve curated an almost similar look which will retail for about $2,500 below:
Here is a version in a lower price point (about $100 total) for any preginistas out there that may want to replicate the fab look:

A little while ago, I got the heads up from the folks on the new lifestyle talk show FABLife about an episode where the daily show’s DIY enthusiast and Lifestyle specialist Leah Ashley did an awesome upcycle job turning a pair of baby cribs into children’s desks.
Ashley co-hosts the show along with show creatorTyra Banks and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen, design stylist Lauren Makk and Fashion expert Joe Zee.
On the show, Ashley helped a mom to quadruplets go through the kids’ grandmom’s garage and pull out their old cribs and eventually convert them into two awesome kids’ desk workstations! Amazing. You can see the clip here!
Perfect for our occasional Eco-Friday segments on the blog.
On the episode with the cribs transformation, I noticed that Ashley was also preggers and naturally, being obsessed with pregnant women, I started to do some online research and landed on her Living with Leah Facebook page and soon learned that the YouTube Star turned regular DIY featured guest for several TV shows is expecting her first child, a son, Finn with her husband of about a year.
Chrissy Teigen got in her feelings recently when she shared her first bump photo on Instagram and got roasted in the comments. “Somebody is early to the party” she captioned her Instagram photo. Teigen and her husband singer/songwriter John Legend are expecting their first child after years of struggling to conceive.

Most of her followers responded to how “big” her tiny bump was. Some news outlets ran with stories suggesting she was pregnant with twins or triplets because she had “popped” so early in her pregnancy given that 13-week pregnancies usually don’t show many signs of a bump. The critical feedback led the model to tweet that she would no longer be talking about her pregnancy.
No more preg tweeting for me, lesson learned!! Back to food and reality TV and hay things — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 18, 2015
She also confirmed that she is only carrying one child.
I did IVF. One at a time. It isn’t twins. I can see the damn thing. Get out of my uterus!
But even she recognized that she is getting a bit back from her sharp tongue in the past when she used to constantly engage in Twitter beef with her fans. It’s Karma, she tweeted later, seemingly insinuating she was over the hurt feelings and admitting that she used to poke fun of round body parts of her friends plenty before getting pregnant.
It’s my own karma! I love bumps so I loved saying how round/big/beautiful they are on others. Don’t worry, friends. — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 18, 2015
Yeah, we don’t think she will resist giving up some bump love along the next few months. Ignore the haters, girl. Embrace the positive feedback which usually outnumbers the critics but always get outshined by the naysayers.
