Chrissy Teigen accidentally revealed the sex of her baby on Instagram Stories on September 17. Teigen, who already shares two children with husband John Legend — a daughter, Luna Simone, 4, and son Miles Theodore, 2 — laughed off the slip once she realized her mistake.
The Cravings cookbook author and chef referred to her unborn child as a “he,” saying, “It’s so weird because the baby’s really really healthy. He’s big. He’s probably, oops! That was stupid.”
“Hahahahaha might as well tell you,” she captioned the post. Teigen, 34, and Legend, 41, will soon welcome a second son to their family.
Teigen opened up about her prior pregnancy complications on Instagram. “My placenta sucks,” she said.
“It’s always been kind of the bad part of my pregnancies with Luna,” Teigen continued. “With Miles, it just stopped feeding him. It stopped taking care of him. I was stealing all his food because I was getting huge but he wasn’t getting big at all, so he had to come out early and Luna had to come out early. I was induced both times.”
Teigen Was Placed on Forced Bed Rest for 2 Weeks During Her Third Pregnancy
Earlier this month, the Chrissy’s Court star revealed that she had been placed on bed rest during her third pregnancy. While taking it easy, Teigen didn’t realize she had to spend all her time in bed, as reported by ET.
“I didn’t really know that bed rest was in bed,” Teigen said on Instagram. “I honestly thought bed rest was you have to really, really relax, stay home. I thought it could be couch rest. But now I’m in trouble. Now, I need bed rest.”
“It’s a bit of a difficult pregnancy,” she continued. “I feel good though. I will say I’m probably being punished for talking so much about how great the first two went. I was like, ‘Oh yeah, pregnancy’s awesome!’ But now I get it. I get anyone that thinks it’s not so awesome, but very happy to be carrying this baby.”
Teigen Said Her Baby Is ‘Growing Beautifully’
While Teigen described her placenta as being “super weak,” she assured her 31.2 million followers that her baby boy is “growing beautifully.”
“Everything’s good,” she said. “I’m feeling really good, but my placenta’s really, really weak and it’s causing me to really bleed a lot. So basically, it’s just pretty high risk.
This poor thing has been through so much already,” she continued. “We just have to get my placenta healthy again, and that means not moving so I’m on complete and total ‘don’t get out except to pee-pee’ bed rest.”
Teigen and Legend first announced her pregnancy in the singer’s “Wild” music video, which was released on August 13, 2020.
