Chrissy Teigen has accidentally revealed she is having a baby boy.
The ‘Sports Illustrated’ model confirmed she and hubby John Legend are expecting a baby boy as she gave her fans an update on her pregnancy health.
Taking to her Instagram story, she said: “My placenta sucks. It’s always been kind of the bad part of my pregnancies, with Luna, with Miles, it just stopped him, it stopped taking care of him … I was getting huge, but he wasn’t getting big at all. The baby is really, really healthy. He’s big – oops. Hahahaha might as well tell you … I’m stupid. anyway. So it’s growing beautifully. I’m feeling really good but my placenta’s really, really weak, and it’s causing me to really bleed a lot. So basically, it’s just pretty high risk and it’s just – this poor thing has been through so much already. We just have to get my placenta healthy again, and that means not moving. So I’m complete and total – don’t get out, except to pee-pee – bed rest. It’s such a bummer because I had to cancel so much work, and I was so excited to talk to so many different people and do these events, because it would start to feel like normal life again. The timing is just s***, I apologise, but I have to make baby okay, so there you go. Thank you for all your well-wishes.”
John and Chrissy have been open about their fertility struggles in the past, and after welcoming both their current children via IVF, John was shocked when Chrissy managed to get pregnant “the old-fashioned way”.
He said: “We just didn’t think we could have a baby the old-fashioned way, honestly. I believed that there would be a quarantine baby boom, with all these couples spending more time together. And I would joke about it, but I figured it wouldn’t happen to us because we’ve had fertility struggles. And now it happened to us, too.”
Teigen aged 34 has been ordered to have lots of bed rest as she copes with a “difficult pregnancy”.
She has been told to rest up by her doctors and she joked it was because she is being “punished” for saying the first two pregnancies went great.
The former ‘LipSync Battle’ host is struggling to sleep during her latest pregnancy. She revealed via Twitter that she’s been experiencing sleepless nights since getting pregnant.
Teigen already has Luna, four, and Miles, two, with her husband John Legend.
