Few people have gone without hearing the name Chrissy Teigen. The supermodel wife of John Legend, and Cravings author, recently took to Twitter about the bizarre way she found out she was pregnant. This pregnancy was a welcome surprise to the couple already having Luna Stephens (4) and Miles Stephens (2).
Chrissy underwent surgery to have her breast implants removed in June. After the announcement, a fan took to Twitter to determine whether the couple knew she was pregnant when she went in for the surgery. Teigen replied in a very candid thread, starting with, “Oh, it’s quite a story. Lol.” She explains how she took the routine pregnancy test before the surgery, which returned negative results. She’s been taking monthly pregnancy tests for years, hoping for a positive to no avail. Both Luna and Miles were conceived with the help of IVF treatments, so the couple expected the negative test.
A few weeks after the surgery, she took another pregnancy test, as she did every month. This time the test returned positive, much to her and John’s delight. John went on Good Morning America to chat about his album release. Chrissy took a test before the show, but it was the same as all the previous times. She follows with, “I woke up with him and was like man, should take my monthly test to be disappointed, I was not disappointed, but I was scared s**tless. Was pretty positive you shouldn’t get your boobs out while pregnant? Pretty sure.” Needless to say, things turned out well. She continued, “So we prayed to the boob surgery gods that everything would be okay. Went to every appointment terrified. Even without the surgery, I didn’t think I could get pregnant naturally anyway. So the odds just felt right. Chrissy explains how they weren’t expecting this at all.
“But what they say so often can be true. When you give up on trying, life has a way of surprising you. In summary, my boobs hurt,” she said, “Also, you guys have seen how rough these past few months were for me here. So now you know why I just extra appreciated all the love and support through it all, especially since you didn’t even know. You just thought I was in stressful internet hell.” Chrissy Teigen spectacularly announced the pregnancy. She was cradling her baby bump while being held by John in his newest music video. Chrissy has been very open and honest about the entire journey. She will probably keep updating her fans about all things baby. We can’t wait to meet the new member of the family.
