Super model Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have officially announced that they are expecting their first child. Chrissy took to her Instagram account on Monday to share the great news with the world.
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. 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
Chrissy has been quite open about the struggles that she has faced in trying to get pregnant, so surely the couple is thrilled to be able to share this news. She recently got candid about their troubles.
“I will say, honestly, John and I are having trouble. We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened. But my gosh, it’s been a process! 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!'”
Luckily they can put those challenges behind them. E News reports that a source close to the couple confirmed that they are just thrilled about the next chapter in their life.
“Chrissy and John are so happy. It’s not been the easiest for Chrissy, but they knew when the right time came they would be pregnant. Chrissy is feeling great and enjoying every second being pregnant. She is taking good care of her body and making sure her and their baby are healthy and feeling good. John has been a huge support for Chrissy during this time. He could not be more excited until their baby comes into this world.”
