This weekend, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram to reveal that her and husband John Legend are looking into having more kids. Given the couple's past experience with pregnancy loss—the two lost their third child, Jack, a little over a year ago—the news is certainly heartwarming.
Chrissy—who was extremely candid about her past experience and was even praised by John for opening up about pregnancy loss—let the world know that she has begun IVF treatments once more in an Instagram story that has now expired. She followed the post with a photo confirming the update as well.
"I posted about this in my stories, but I wanted to let you guys know I'm balls deep in another IVF cycle to save as many eggos as I possibly can and hopefully make some strong, healthy embryos," she wrote in the caption accompanying a photo of herself exercising.

She went on, "I honestly don't mind the shots. They make me feel like a doctor/chemist. But the bloating is a bitch, 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."

Chrissy, 36, and John, 43, are already parents to Luna, 5, and Miles, 3. The couple was able to get pregnant with both kids with the help of IVF. Last year, Chrissy announced that she was able to get pregnant with her second son naturally. Unfortunately, in September of 2020, the celebrity couple lost the child and, since then, the two have been outspoken about the pregnancy-related issues that women all over the world face and don't talk about much.
At the time of the loss, Chrissy took to social media to discuss the topic. "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 an Instagram post. "We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough. We never decide on our babies' names until the last possible moment after they're born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever."
In her latest post, where she opened up about starting IVF treatments again, Chrissy took the opportunity to educate the public about similar issues once more. "Please stop asking people, anyone, if they're pregnant," she wrote. "I said this in the comments and got yelled at because the internet is wild but I’d rather be the one to tell you and not some poor woman who will look you in the eyes through tears and that’s how you finally learn."
We are proud of Chrissy for being so candid about fertility issues and wish her and John the best of luck at trying to expand their already adorable family.
