Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting their fourth child together! Chrissy announced the news on her Instagram page, writing that she’s been hesitant to share the update publicly but that she finally feels ready. The happy update comes nearly two years after Chrissy and John lost their third child, a son named Jack, at 20 weeks gestation.

Chrissy began 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.”
She continues by adding that she’s undergone at least one medical intervention during the pregnancy. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way. 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.”
Chrissy adds, “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!”
In September 2020, Chrissy and John suffered the devastating loss of their son Jack at only 20 weeks gestation. Much to the surprise of some, both were open about the experience. John later told The Guardian that it felt important to share their story, saying, “It was raw, sharing our experience. I was worried but our instinct was to do it because people knew we were pregnant and Chrissy felt like she needed to tell the story completely about what happened.”
He continued, “Also, we found out how many other families have gone through this. It was a powerful and brave thing that Chrissy did to share that because it made so many people feel like they were seen and that they weren’t alone.”
