After the exciting news came out about the couple’s third child, we’ve all been left wondering how Chrissy Teigen managed to make sure nothing could give their big surprise away…
As we all know, once a fan spots something, It’s game over for any surprise.
How did she manage to keep her baby bump a secret for so long?
The pair got together over a decade ago and have gone from strength to strength ever since.
Chrissy and John first met on the set of his 2007 music video for “Stereo,” where she starred as the singer’s love interest.
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.
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.”
…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.
“We get to the Maldives and he had planned this beautiful Christmas. He knows how much I love Christmas…And this waiter comes out with a silver dome for dessert…So he opens up the dome and a ton of arugula falls out and then I kind of fish in it…And I see the little box and then you know, your heart stops and you get so excited,” Chrissy explained.
“There was no big grand speech or anything. I think it was just very lovely and sweet.”
But they (legally) got married in an NYC courthouse, a day before traveling to Italy.
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.)
And their little family is simply the cutest.
Chrissy gave birth to their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens, on April 14, 2016, and son, Miles Theodore Stephens, on May 16, 2018.
And by that, we mean she posts the ins and outs of being a mom.
And she perfectly outlines the tiring but wonderful experience of raising 2 young children.
Because they’re expecting their third baby!
Via music video, of course.
And it shows the couple frolicking around on a white linen bed on the beach. Classy.
“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.”
We get an unexpected, yet very exciting shot of the pair.
Yep, the Legends are officially going to be a family of 5, and we couldn’t be more excited.
And they all walk towards the ocean together as a family.
She managed to fool us all and still post to her Instagram… In a bikini no less.
But after looking back on her photos, there’s a pretty obvious way she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret.
Before the coronavirus lockdown, the Legends made their way to Mexico to wait it out.
What could have been one of the biggest giveaways turned into a regular bikini pic, as her bump was hidden the whole time.
Days later, Miles was on hand to cover any unexpected belly bumps.
And while everything seemed normal in the Legend household, no one knew about the fifth member getting in on the action.
Earlier this month, Chrissy posed for storytime with her two children.
But on August 4, Chrissy had to try a little harder and resorted to wearing a beautiful flowing dress to hide the big surprise.
But after John’s music video Wild came out, everything was thrown up in the air.
Chrissy later confirmed the pregnancy news after fans started to question everything.
She wrote: “Look at this third baby s***.”
John even came out and said the couple has learned lots about each other over throughout lockdown, despite being together for 7 years.
He said: “We have also learned a lot about parenting. It’s a more intense parenting experience than we’ve ever had. It’s made us stronger and brought us together.”
“It’s definitely a challenge to co-parent during these times.”
And it’ll be an even greater challenge now a third little Legend is on the way. Check out the video for Wild below…
Congratulations, Chrissy and John!
