Well, that was quick! Chrissy Teigen recently revealed that she and hubby John Legend would soon be trying for baby No. 2 via in vitro fertilization. And now, “Chrissy is pregnant,” a source tells Life & Style, explaining that Chrissy’s mom, Vilailuck Teigen, let the news slip on the set of Chrissy’s show Lip Sync Battle.
“Chrissy’s mom was overheard saying, ‘My daughter is so emotional these days because she’s pregnant.’” Chrissy and John have been having marital issues lately, so she’s praying this baby “will keep her and John together,” says an insider. “It should give them a huge reason to make the marriage work."
As previously reported, constant fighting along with Chrissy’s battle with postpartum depression after welcoming daughter Luna in April 2016 have taken a toll on her marriage to John. (According to another source, things are so bad that the pair completed at least six months of marriage counseling.)
But some friends fear a baby is the last thing Chrissy and John need right now. This baby “will just be a Band-Aid. They’ll need to do a lot more work on their marriage if it’s going to last," says the insider, adding that "Chrissy loves John and wants to make her marriage work."
Regardless of how another baby might affect her marriage to John, Chrissy is undoubtedly thrilled about expanding her family. During a July 2017 cover story with Marie Claire, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit stunner said that she would even be willing to go through postpartum depression again. "I loved being pregnant," she told the magazine. "Maybe I should be scared [of having PPD again], but I don't know. It couldn't be any worse than it was — could it?"
