Model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen confirmed — in low-key fashion — that she and husband John Legend are expecting a son. Last night, Sunday, Jan. 28, the couple attended the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City in high style, with Teigen dazzling in a sparkling belted silver gown accentuating her very pregnant belly. Later that night, Teigen posted a red carpet shot of herself on Instagram, captioned simply, “Mama and her baby boy.”
Teigen and Legend already parents to 21-month-old daughter Luna Simone — and Teigen and Legend were obviously in a hurry to get back to her after all that Grammys revelry. Teigen tweeted a post-Grammy selfie captioned, “mom and dad home by 10:30!”

Ryan Seacrest nabbed Legend and Teigen on the red carpet at the event, asking Legend — a 10-time Grammy winner with 28 nominations — if he was going to knock back a few stiff drinks before presenting an award at the ceremony. Legend confessed to a single whiskey shot, quipping that he was “drinking for two.”
Teigen told Seacrest that the Grammys felt different this year since she’s pregnant: “Much less [drinking]. I’m like, ‘I’m not funny this year.'”
The couple has struggled to conceive in the past, and Teigen confirmed only recently to People that they opted for IVF again, as they had with baby Luna. “We did the harvesting — as they call it — again, where they make the embryos.” She had previously hinted that a little boy would be next after Luna, though a recent Instagram post of Teigen’s captioned “girls weekend” had the internet speculating that maybe a second girl was on the way.
Now that the gender mystery is over, the only mystery left is the due date — that and why haters keep thinking they can go toe-to-toe with Teigen, the clapback queen of social media.
Earlier this month, Teigen posted a throwback pic on Instagram of Legend and herself at the 2008 Grammys. She poked fun at her own appearance: “10 years ago. This tan!!! Lmao.” When some random troll commented that she looked better before “the boobies and the fillers,” Teigen’s retort was swift and harsh: “Boobies and fillers? Fuck off with your backhanded shit.” Spoiler for future moms: Nothing fills those “boobies” quite like two pregnancies, folks.
And this concludes our latest chapter of Chrissy Teigen and why we heart her so hard. She’s committed to keeping it real and putting up with precisely zero bullshit.
