Cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is showing off her baby bump while spending quality time with family.
The “Cravings” author surprised fans in the most pleasant way possible, when she announced earlier this month that she was expecting her third child with singer John Legend.
Teigen recently took to her Instagram to proudly display her baby bump while wearing an orange bikini. Another picture saw the pregnant model in a cutout green maxi dress and green floral print scarf as she stared lovingly at her daughter. She also looked well rested as she posed for other adorable pictures with her daughter, Luna, and her son, Miles.

She Displayed Her Growing Bump In An Orange Bikini
Teigen recently posted photo and video dumps from a recent holiday trip on her Instagram. Her baby bump is most evident in the pictures, which she displayed in an orange bikini before changing into a ribbed, cutout, maxi green dress.
She also posted a picture where she looked lovingly at her daughter by a tree that had a picturesque backdrop behind them and also held onto Miles in her lap as he slept on a boat trip.
Miles also looked adorable as they enjoyed dinner at a restaurant while Luna beamed during a scenic boat trip. The pictures, posted alongside a heart emoji, have amassed almost 800,000 likes and attracted several positive messages in the comments section.
A fan wrote, “Beautiful mama,” while another said, “I can’t believe we’re growing yet another lil cutie.”

“The last few years have been a blur of emotions, to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again. One billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!), we have another on the way. Every appointment, I’ve said to myself, ‘OK, if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce,’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still,” she shared in a lengthy caption.
“I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves, but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful, and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing. OK, phew, it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!”
Chrissy Teigen Had Fears About Getting Pregnant Again After Her Loss
Last year, the model and her husband, Legend, announced that they lost their third child, Jack, 20 weeks into her pregnancy. Not long afterward, Teigen disclosed that she could not carry a child again.
“Coming to terms with not being able to carry again is still really difficult for me because I feel so healthy. I’m like, why? But then I think about it as my uterus is just not cooperating with me – and it’s not a failure,” she shared per People.
Despite her loss, she expressed gratitude for her other children, whom she conceived via IVF.
“I’m so lucky for that,” she says. “I just think of it in terms of how blessed I am already, and also, there are so many ways to have a child nowadays, whether it’s surrogacy or adoption.”
Chrissy Teigen Wants To Help Other Women
While Teigen revealed that she couldn’t imagine a “life without more children,” she and her husband Legend hope to navigate their reality while helping others in similar situations.
“For me, what’s really important is being able to make sure that everybody has access to those ways and making sure that people can make their dreams come true. It would just be a beautiful thing,” she shared.
“It’s incredibly expensive to freeze your eggs and harvest them. IVF isn’t an option for many people and needs to be. It shouldn’t be such an expensive endeavor for a woman trying to conceive a child.”
The pair also honored their late son by having a special tree planted in their new home.
“It’s important in Thai tradition that we always embrace the ones we’ve lost, and they’re never, ever gone. This tree is planted inside the home, the whole reason why I wanted it was so Jack’s ashes could be in that soil, and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves in this tree,” concluded Teigen.
