Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are now a family of four. The couple, (who are already parents to daughter Luna, 2), welcomed a baby boy on May 16 and Teigen took to Twitter to share his arrival with her fans. Legend later retweeted the message on his own account. Considering Teigen is known for her active Twitter account it seems fitting that she broke the news on the social media platform.
Teigen was due in June, however, her baby boy made an early arrival–and one the model definitely welcomed. In fact, just last week she took to Twitter to express her frustration over the later stages of her pregnancy. “Happy pregnant Chrissy is gone. meet OVER IT Chrissy,” she tweeted. “Wanna hold my boy let’s do thisssssss.”
Teigen announced her second pregnancy via Instagram in November, posting a sweet video of her daughter, Luna, pointing at the model’s belly and exclaiming “baby.”
The supermodel and social media maven turned to IVF for both of her pregnancies and she has been very vocal regarding both her struggle with infertility and postpartum depression. She first opened up about her difficulty to conceive during an episode of FABlife in 2015. “I would say, honestly, [that] John and I were having trouble. We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened, but my gosh, it’s been a process,” she said.
After years of trying and undergoing IVF treatments the couple welcomed their daughter, Luna–but it wasn’t smooth sailing for the new mom. Teigen bravely shared her personal struggle with postpartum depression in a personal essay that accompanied her Glamour cover story. “Postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do,” she said. “I’m speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody, and I don’t want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone.”
