After a stillbirth two years ago, Chrissy Teigen is expecting again

Chrissy Teigen has announced that she is expecting her second child, nearly two years after experiencing a stillbirth and sharing heartbreaking images of her grief. John Legend and Teigen shared some reflections on their journey in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

The last few years have been filled with emotions, to say the least, but joy has returned to our home and our hearts," the model and cookbook mogul wrote on Instagram. Every appointment I've said 'ok if it's healthy today, I'll announce.' but then I hear a heartbeat and realize I'm just too nervous. So far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I'm feeling hopeful and amazing. Oh phew, it's been hard keeping this in."

Teigen posted on Instagram in February that she had begun IVF treatment and asked fans not to ask if she was pregnant. Teigen told Entertainment Tonight in March that she had completed an IVF cycle. Legend and Teigen already have two children, Luna, 6, and Miles, 4. Teigen wrote a Medium post detailing her experience at 20 weeks of pregnancy with partial placenta abruption, a severe pregnancy complication.

The doctor told her what she knew was coming after a couple of nights at the hospital - it was time to say goodbye. We had been trying bags and bags of blood transfusions, and every one of them went straight through me like we hadn't done anything. Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go.

Despite knowing that he would not survive, she delivered the son they planned to name Jack. "Mom sobbed through Thai prayer as we each held him and said our private goodbyes," she wrote. I kissed his hands and feet over and over again. I don't remember when I stopped. It could have been ten minutes or an hour."

Celebrities, including Courtney Stodden and Farrah Abraham, have accused Teigen of bullying since May 2021. Her Instagram post in July announced a one-year sobriety milestone.

She wrote on Instagram, "I miss feeling loopy and carefree sometimes, but to be honest, it didn't give me that fun feeling anymore anyway." Despite that she wrote, "I sometimes get frustrated looking back on days I should remember better than I do due to alcohol."

"Although I don't know if I'll never drink again, I do know I never want to be that way again. For now, no is best. I'll let the bad dreams come up and sort them out in therapy, without booze."
