Following the backlash surrounding her pregnancy announcement, Chrissy Teigen has explained how she found out she was pregnant and it's "quite the story"...
Baby news is always exciting.Whether it's someone you know in real life ... or otherwise.
But celebrity baby news?Well, that might just be the best of the bunch.
And when it's a couple everybody loves?Well, that's even better.
Like... John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, for example.
Following the backlash...Chrissy has opened up about how she found out she was pregnant, and it's quite a ride...
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Hollywood's sweethearts.
Their romance began in 2007.Chrissy and John first met on the set of his 2007 music video for “Stereo," where she starred as the singer's love interest.
But, the pair didn't make it official until months after a music video fling.With John heading out on tour shortly after wrapping up his music video, the timing just wasn't meant to be. “The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, ‘There’s so much more out there.’ I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him," Chrissy explained to Cosmopolitan in 2014.
While John was on the road, the couple talked and texted religiously...But it wasn't long before Chrissy joined her beau on tour, although the pair had a mini-break up during this time... that lasted a day. “I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick," she explained. “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now.’ That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working."
Fast forward 4 years of dating and John was down on one knee......but it didn't run quite a smoothly as he'd have hoped. John proposed to Chrissy during a Maldives vacation in December 2011, but the pair had a fight on the way to the airport, and to top it off, TSA almost ruined the surprise before they could even board on their flight.
But luckily, everything turned out fine in the end.
The pair got hitched on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como.
They have since cemented themselves as a firm Hollywood power couple.The two are a pivotal part of the celebrity scene and their fans lap it up (especially where Chrissy's relatable social media posts are concerned... let's be honest, she's comedy gold.)
The couple share 2 children together...
Chrissy regularly posts about family life on Instagram...
She's known well for her honest perspective into parenting...
And it looked like things are going to get even more tiring...Because they're expecting their third baby!
Yep, they made their exciting announcement last week...Via music video, of course.
The video was for John's new track, "Wild."And it shows the couple frolicking around on a white linen bed on the beach.
Some of the lyrics include:"I wanna drive you wild, wild, wild. I wanna love you for miles and miles. We can go slow, we don't need to rush. I'll take the wheel, make you feel every touch. I wanna drive you wild, wild, wild."
But, as the song draws to a close...We get an unexpected, yet very exciting shot of the pair.
A pregnancy bump!Yep, the Legends are officially going to be a family of 5, and we couldn't be more excited.
At the end of the video, their 2 other children join in the fun...And they all walk towards the ocean together as a family. But some fans noticed something very problematic about the pregnancy announcement...

Following all the backlash...Chrissy decided to open up about how she found out she was pregnant.
She took to Twitter to pen a late-night thread.And it's a roller coaster, to say the least.

If you cast your mind back to May...
Before the surgery, Chrissy took a routine pregnancy test.
But, it came back as negative.
Chrissy has been very open about her struggles to get pregnant and experience with IVF, so this came as no surprise to the star.
I did the routine pregnancy test you do before surgery. It said negative. It was not negative.— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1597465982.0
She went on to reveal that she takes pregnancy tests monthly.
And that she always prays to see a positive result.

However, this time, she wasn't.
Her test came back positive! But, the star admitted that she was terrified because she had had the surgery to remove her breast implants.
...I was not disappointed. But I was scared shitless. Was pretty positive you shouldn't get your boobs out while pregnant? Pretty sure.— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1597466203.0
"We went to every appointment terrified."
Chrissy even admitted that she didn't think she could get pregnant naturally.

"Life has a way of surprising you."
"In summary, my boobs hurt."
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.— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1597466430.0
