The 36-year-old cookbook author, model, and TV personality took to Instagram to post the photos, wearing a cropped black T-shirt and black sheer underwear while announcing the pregnancy. “The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again. 1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way. Every appointment I’ve said to myself, “ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce” but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still. I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing. Ok phew it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!" she wrote.

Teigen's IVF journey

In February, Teigen revealed that she is undergoing IVF treatment to get pregnant again but requested people to stop asking her if she’s pregnant. She said, “I honestly don’t mind the shots…they make me feel like a doctor/chemist…but the bloating is a bi—, so I humbly beg you to stop asking if I’m pregnant because while I know it’s said with excited, good intentions, it just kind of sucks to hear because I am the opposite of pregnant!”

As reported earlier, in September 2020, Teigen, who shares two children, Luna, 5, and Miles, 3, with Legend, suffered a tragic loss of her pregnancy, just a month after announcing the news that they were expecting a child.

Legend previously opened up about their heartache after losing Jack in an interview with The Guardian. He had said, "It was a tragedy. But I think it strengthened our resolve and our resilience because we were there for each other. We came out even more sure of who we were as a couple and as a family."
