On this week’s episode of Audacy’s Check, singer John Legend revealed that he and wife Chrissy Teigen were “excited” to welcome a new baby.
“We’ve got a few more months before Chrissy is expecting to deliver. We’re really anticipating it,” Legend shared.
Following the couple’s recent pregnancy loss, Legend said it was “difficult,” but the family is “feeling so optimistic this time.”
“We’ve spent quite a bit of time with our kids now, Luna is 6 and Miles is 4, so we’ve grown as parents, and we’re ready to bring another baby into the world,” he said. “I could see us going for four.”
Legend explained that he and his wife “envision growing old together, having three or four kids and having them come over for Sunday dinner, having grandkids when the time is right.”
When asked how the children feel about the new addition to the family, Teigen said the kids are “very excited.”
“Since we did IVF [in-vitro fertilization], we knew probably nine days after we did the transfer that it had worked and we were pregnant,” she said. “I told them very, very early.”
“They knew that I was going in for the transfer, that we were going to go in and put this egg inside Mommy’s belly. So they knew from the very, very beginning, and they knew there was a chance it might not work because that’s happened before,” she explained.
“They’ve been excited for a long time,” added Teigen. “I feel like this is going to be the longest pregnancy to them because they’ve known since the day. But they’ve been really very excited.”
