Almost two years after losing a pregnancy baby, Chrissy Teigen has announced that she is expecting a child with her husband, John Legend. The 36-year-old American model uploaded a photo to Instagram showing herself pregnant and writing that she was feeling “hopeful and amazing.” Our house and hearts are once more overflowing with joy, she continued. The couple named their child Jack, but she miscarried him in September 2020 due to complications and bleeding. The loss, according to Teigen, was “the biggest heartache I could imagine.”

Chrissy Teigen has been through a lot in her life, so it’s no surprise she would want to share this news with the world. The model announced on Twitter that she was expecting a girl on Monday morning, which makes sense considering she already has two boys: Luna Simone Stephens (born in March 2016) and Miles Johnathan Smalls (born in February 2018). Since announcing their pregnancy news back in June 2018, there have been rumors that they were expecting again soon after having just had their last baby together!
Miles Theodore Stephens
Teigen and Legend just celebrated their newest addition to the family, Miles Theodore Stephens. The couple reportedly lost their first child, Luna Simone Stephens, at six weeks of age. They were expecting another baby together in February 2019, but that didn’t happen either.
“We are both very excited about welcoming our new addition,” Teigen said on Instagram Tuesday evening. “Miles Theodore Stephens is the name we picked out together.”
Tragic News About Losing Their Baby
Miles is six-months-old now but was not even born when Teigen and Legend shared the tragic news about losing their baby. According to People magazine, Chrissy was 16 weeks pregnant with her second child when she went into labor on April 3rd, 2018. She gave birth to a healthy baby boy at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles that same day but sadly he passed away just hours later due to complications from his prematurity (he was 23 weeks along). In honor of Miles’ memory and dedication to motherhood overall (she’s already got three kids), Teigen announced via Instagram that she’d be taking time off from modeling for personal reasons related to her pregnancy loss.
Teigen and her Infertility in the Past
Chrissy Teigen has been very open about her struggle with infertility in the past. She told Elle magazine in 2017 that she and John Legend had been trying to get pregnant for 10 years and that they didn’t know if it was going to happen. “I thought I could never have kids,” Teigen said at the time, adding: “But then we found out I was pregnant!”
Chrissy Teigen deserves congratulations! The model and author shared the news of her fourth pregnancy with husband John Legend on Instagram. The past few years have, to put it mildly, been a flurry of emotions, but joy has returned to our house and hearts, Teigen, 36, wrote beside a selfie mirror photo of herself sporting a developing baby belly while donning a black top and a pair of sheer, high-waisted Gucci underwear. We have another coming after “1 billion shots” (mostly in the leg recently, as we can see!
In an interview with TODAY last year, she also said that getting pregnant was one of her greatest hopes for maternity leave from modeling and that she’d ideally like to have four children (she has two dogs).
The happy news was shared almost two years after Teigen revealed that she and Legend tragically lost their third child, Jack, in September 2020 due to pregnancy-related problems. Teigen started a crucial discussion on miscarriage by bravely sharing their loss experience. Since then, she has persisted in being open about the IVF procedures she underwent to conceive once more. Her candor has helped to dispel stigmas around fertility issues and support others as they embark on their pregnancy journeys.
She’s Stronger Than Ever
It’s been a tough road for the couple to get to this point, but she’s stronger than ever!
Chrissy Teigen has been open about her struggles with infertility and has overcome many obstacles to becoming pregnant. She even wrote an entire memoir about it called Cravings: Recipes for Good Life (with Recipes).
