Legendary singer and songwriter, John Legend, and his wife have announced that they are having their first child together. His supermodel wife, Chrissy Teigen, took to Instagram to announce their pregnancy. “John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant 🙂 As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now.” She captioned the photo.
However, the road to getting a baby has not been easy for the trendsetting couple. “It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family,” the model intimated. Chrissy, who featured on his hit song All of Me, said that she is thankful to fans for their support. Meanwhile, Legend shared the exciting news by posting the same photo, simply captioned, “We’re pregnant!” Having been together for six years and married for two years, the duo felt that an addition to their family was long overdue. “I swear to you, I thought I would’ve had one by now,” Teigen said talking to HuffPost Live on May 8, while chatting about babies. “So, hopefully we’ll just have this Angelina-Brad-type brood. I would love that. I definitely want a lot of kids, though, and he does as well.” She added. Teigen also said that she would definitely adopt, and she added that she hopes to have four children with Legend. The Sports Illustrated star is pretty much an open book, especially when it comes to social media. She recently took to her new talk show with supermodel Tyra Banks, FABLife, to discuss the troubles she had when she was trying to become pregnant. The daytime show which airs on ABC saw the two disclosing for the first time, their experience with fertility issues and pregnancy. Teigen expressed her hatred for the question, “Are you going to have kids?” Tyra also bashed those who commented on her social media pages concerning the matter. “I just feel like we’re so hard on each other and judgmental of each other. And a woman who is divorced three times is more normal than a woman who has not been married,” she said. “I’m so tired of seeing on my social media, ‘Why don’t you have kids?’ You don’t know!” she added emotively. Other celebrity couples who have had babies in recent years include Jay Z and Beyoncé, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as well as Ciara and Future.John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant 🙂 As many of you know, we've been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn't been easy, but we kept trying because we can't wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We're so excited that it's finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx A photo posted by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on
