Chrissy Teigen confirms she will try for second child with John Legend via IVF
UPI News Service, 10/04/2017
Chrissy Teigen will indeed try for a second child using in vitro fertilization.
The 31-year-old model and "Lip sync Battle" co-host said in the November issue of InStyle that she will soon undergo the procedure in hopes of having another baby with husband John Legend.
Teigen, who conceived her first child, daughter Luna, via IVF, told the magazine she and Legend were left with three embryos after initially extracting about 20 during her round of fertility treatments a few years back.
"The first little girl didn't work, and then the second one is Luna," she said. The third embryo will be transferred to her womb in "the coming months."
Teigen and Legend welcomed Luna in April 2016 after dealing with fertility struggles. Legend opened up about the experience in an interview with Cosmopolitan published in August.
"Having a baby is a big challenge for a couple," the singer told the magazine. "I think it's especially difficult when you can't conceive naturally."
"I wouldn't say we can't conceive naturally, but I would say that it's enough of a challenge where it felt like we needed help," he said. "[IVF] brought us Luna and hopefully it will bring us a few more awesome kids, too."
Teigen told Entertainment Tonight in January that she and Legend will have "a little boy" next.
She later explained on Twitter, "I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left" from the IVF process.
