Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are having a baby!

The 29-year-old model announced the happy news on Instagram Monday night, posting a sweet photo with the caption:

“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”


Last month, Teigen revealed she was having difficulty conceiving, news that went viral for lack of a better word.

“I will say, honestly, John and I are having trouble,” she said while promoting Tyra Banks‘ upcoming show “FABLife” on which she’s a panelist, revealing they’d seen fertility doctors.

“We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened,” she added. “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!'”

It’s a safe bet this won’t be the last child for the couple, as Chrissy told Sports Illustrated in 2014 that she’d love an “Angelina-Brad-type brood.”
