Nearly two years after her pregnancy loss, Chrissy Teigen is looking to expand her family through IVF. The Cravings cookbook author, 36, revealed in a social media post on Saturday that she has begun IVF treatments.
The news came after Chrissy shared a photo of needles to her Instagram Stories. “Here we go again,” she captioned the photo.
In a post on her feed, Chrissy Teigen re-confirmed that she is undergoing IVF once again.
“hiiii. I posted about it 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.
“I honestly don’t mind the shots…they make me feel like a doctor/chemist…but the bloating is a bitch,” Teigen continued. “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!”
“But also like please stop asking people, anyone, if they’re pregnant,” she added, before promising her followers that should she get pregnant, she will “be the one to tell you.”
Chrissy Teigen, who has been married to John Legend since 2013, lost their third child, son Jack, at just 20 weeks gestation in 2020.
While Chrissy Teigen and John Legend conceived their other two children — daughter Luna Simone, 5, and son Miles Theodore, 3 — with the help of IVF treatments, their third child, son Jack, was conceived naturally.
At the time of Jack’s death, Teigen shared her grief in an Instagram post, writing, “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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.”
She added, “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.”
