That mama-to-be appetite, y’all! Chrissy Teigen revealed her latest bedtime pregnancy cravings to fans on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, August 25. Trust us, these snacks will totally give you some ’90s nostalgia.
“Tonight’s pregnancy nightstand mix brought to you by Blow Pop Minis,” the 34-year-old explained while showing off the treats. “I’m really crazy addicted to Blow Pops right now. Mainly Green Apple. Also, ham and cheddar Lunchables. I heat up each piece of the meat so I don’t get listeria — because you’re not supposed to have deli meat pregnant.”
The former Sports Illustrated cover girl and John Legend revealed their third pregnancy in a very special way on August 13. In the musician’s music video for his latest single, “Wild,” Chrissy could be seen cradling her tummy while her longtime love, 41, hugged her from behind. When the visual for the track debuted that day, fans immediately started speculating the pair was expecting.
The model confirmed the rumors a few hours later while showing off her tiny baby bump on her Instagram Stories. “Look at this third baby s—t,” Chrissy said in a video.
The mother of two also revealed the pregnancy was unplanned — and that she didn’t even know about it until after she underwent a breast implant removal surgery in June. Chrissy told fans on Twitter she had done a routine pregnancy test before her surgery and, unbeknownst to her at the time, received a false negative. A few weeks later, she took another pregnancy test, as she has been doing monthly since her 20s.
“So the morning of John’s album release, he wakes up at 3 a.m. to do Good Morning America. 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,” she continued.
“So we prayed to the boob surgery gods that everything would be OK,” she continued. “Went to every appointment terrified. Even without the surgery, I didn’t think I could get pregnant naturally anyway. So the odds just felt … bad.”
Chrissy and John share daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2, who were both conceived via in vitro fertilization (IVF). It makes sense the pregnancy would be shocking to the couple, yet so exciting. “But what they say so often can be true,” Chrissy added. “When you give up on trying, life has a way of surprising you.”
