Chrissy Teigen pregnant two years after the loss of son, John Legend.
22 months after losing their son Jack barely halfway through her pregnancy, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting their third child.
The two already have a 6-year-old daughter named Luna and a 4-year-old boy named Miles.
The Chrissy's Court actress revealed in February that she was undergoing in vitro fertilization, a procedure she has done with both Miles and Luna's pregnancies.
Teigen announced the good newson social media, writing, "The previous few years have been a swirl of emotions, to say the least, but joy has filled our house and hearts again."
"After a billion injections (mostly in the leg lately, as you can see! ), we are expecting another.
Every time I have my appointment, I tell myself, "Ok, if it's healthy today, I'll announce," but then I hear a heartbeat and decide I'm still too afraid.
I doubt I'll ever leave a meeting feeling more thrilled than anxious, but thus far, everything is lovely and flawless, and I'm filled with optimism and amazement.
Oh my goodness, it's been so difficult to hold this in for so long!" Teigen and Legend wed in September 2013, and Legend shared the message.

After losing their third child, Jack, over two years ago, Teigen announced on Wednesday night through Instagram that she and her husband were expecting a child.
The 36-year-old woman shared images of her growing baby bulge along with a note in which she discussed her earlier difficulties and current happiness.
The past few years have, to put it mildly, been a swirl of emotions, but joy has returned to our house and hearts, she said. We have another coming after "1 billion shots" (mostly in the leg, as you can see!).
Teigen didn't say how far along she is, but she did acknowledge she has been reluctant to announce the exciting news because she has a sneaking suspicion something may go wrong.
Every time I go in for my appointment, I tell myself, "OK, if it's healthy today I'll announce," but then I hear a heartbeat and realize I'm still too anxious," she said.
"I doubt I'll ever leave a meeting feeling more excited than anxious, but thus far, everything is lovely and great, and I'm filled with optimism and amazing feelings. Oh, good. Keeping this a secret for so long has been really difficult!
While filming Legend's "Stereo" music video in 2006, Teigen and Legend became friends.
In 2011, they announced their engagement, and they married roughly two years later. Thereafter, the couple welcomed a boy in 2018 and a daughter in 2016.
In the music video for "Wild" by Legend, the couple revealed they were expecting their third child in August 2020.
However, Teigen confirmed in a heartbreaking Instagram post that she had miscarried roughly two months later. She shared her story in an essay for Medium.
Because I made the delight so public, she said, "I feel horrible that our pain was so public."
"I was eager to inform the world of our news. … Our children are told that Jack exists in the wind, trees, and butterflies they see, and that he will always be adored.
Thank you so much to everyone who has thought of us or taken the time to give us their love and tales. We are really fortunate."
Additionally, he clarified why he and Teigen had been so forthright about their encounter.
"Many women and families suffer with infertility, and in my opinion, no one should feel guilty of occasionally requiring assistance.
And I believe Chrissy has done a terrific job of demistifying some of these issues that so many people experience in silence, "added he.
"Whether it's IVF, other fertility issues, losing a pregnancy, or something else entirely, I think both of us have felt that it's good for us to share this with other people because other people are going through it too.
We don't think they should suffer in silence without knowing there are other people out there who are feeling the same thing," they said.
