Chrissy Teigen, Who Is Not Pregnant, Is Having a Boy

Jenn is perhaps best known as the author of the popular parenting blog Breed ‘Em and Weep (2005-2012). She’s written for many magazines, newspapers and websites, including Brain, Child Magazine, Literary Mama, and The Boston Globe. Jenn’...

It's a boy, someday, for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend (but not right now)

Update: January 31, 11:40 a.m. EST: 

Some jerks on Twitter gave Chrissy Teigen a hard time about her intensely personal decision to pursue IVF for her next child. But don't worry, Chrissy can handle them: 

See below for our original story: 



Being a celebrity is the coolest, probably. Being Chrissy Teigen? A billion times cooler than that. Not only do you get to decide whether you want to borrow a neck load of Harry Winston or Neil Lane diamonds for your red carpet outing, you get to pick the sex of your baby in one easy step. Just make a wish and tell Fairy Godmother Giuliana Rancic at the SAG Awards. Presto. It’s a boy!

OK, so maybe it’s a little more complicated than that. You have to science and stuff to seal the deal. But Chrissy Teigen makes it all sound like a piece of cake.

No, Teigen’s not pregnant yet. Don’t you go spreading any rumors. She and husband John Legend are perfectly happy with crazy-cute baby Luna. Teigen is just planning ahead, so cool your jets. Teigen and Legend were interviewed by a glittery Giuliana Rancic from E! while at yesterday’s SAG Awards, where Teigen was more than happy to tell Rancic (and thus, the world), “Oh my God, a little boy is next for sure!”

Teigen, who’s spoken openly about her infertility struggles, told People she had the option of choosing a female embryo when she and Legend decided to undergo in vitro fertilization. And they did (hello, Luna schmoopie!). Now, screening for the sex of the baby can add a few thousand dollars on top of the expense of your boring, run-of-the-mill genetically miraculous basic IVF, which averages $12,000. Sooooooo… you know. Not really an option for most of us, but have at it, Teigen-Legends.

We’re wondering what else the magic IVF genetic screeners can do. We’re pretty sure you can pay extra to guarantee an adorable piano prodigy or R&B crooner embryo. And since Teigen’s not shy about telling everyone she wants “another baby sooner rather than later,” we’re thinking we won’t have to wait too long to find out just what the next Teigen-Legend creation will be like. (Instagram is already preparing a 2-by-2-inch nursery square for the new arrival.)
