The couple conceived the child through IVF (in vitro fertilization), a process that Teigen mentioned in previous posts.
The 36-year-old model, whose mother comes from Thailand, also wrote about how she is currently feeling about the pregnancy.
“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,” she explained. “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.”
Teigen’s announcement comes almost two years after she and Legend lost a child in 2020. Teigen suffered excessive bleeding before the miscarriage, resulting in the loss of their son, Jack, around 20 weeks after he was conceived. 
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she wrote in October 2020. “To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you.”
Teigen wrote about the experience in an essay on Medium, revealing that doctors diagnosed her with a partial placental abruption. She encouraged other people to share their stories and “please be kind to those pouring their hearts out.”
