Trigger warning – this article discusses baby loss.
Chrissy Teigen has said she was 'too nervous' to announce her pregnancy, following the loss of her baby son Jack in 2020.
Chrissy, 36, announced she's expecting on Wednesday evening, 3 August, taking to social media with a beautiful photo of her growing bump.
She wrote: "The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again.
"1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way. Every appointment I’ve said to myself, 'ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce' but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still.
"I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing.
"Ok phew it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!"
Following the announcement, friends and followers have been flooding the comments with messages of congratulations.
One person wrote: "YAYAYYAYAYYAYAYYYYYYYYY!! congrats!!"
While another said: "Soooo happy for you and John!!!"
And a third added: "BIG CONGRATS!!! Happy for you and your family."
Back in 2020, Chrissy and John were given the devastating news that they had lost their baby.
Chrissy had previously told fans she had been taken to hospital after experiencing excessive bleeding during her pregnancy, telling them she was scared, but remained hopeful.
However, she later confirmed she had lost the baby in a statement, 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."
Revealing the name of their late son, she went on: "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."
She added: "To our Jack – I'm so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn't give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you."
The pair are also parents to Luna, six, and Myles, four.
