Get together! Teigen — who has been married to Legend since 2013 — has been documenting her recent pregnancy on social media with plenty of updates.

Chrissy announced she was expecting on Instagram in August, posting photos of her blooming baby bump.

The happy news came nearly two years after she and John lost their son Jack at 20 weeks pregnant. He later revealed that his late son’s death was the result of a life-saving abortion and not a miscarriage as first claimed.

She explained that she made the ‘difficult decision’ to terminate the pregnancy after realizing that neither she nor Jacko would survive.

‘Let’s call it what it is: it’s an abortion. Abortion to save my life for a child who had no chance. “I never really put it together until a few months ago, to be honest,” admitted Chrissy. THR.
