Chrissy Teigen & John Legend announce they’re expecting again in his ‘Wild’ video

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend arrive at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Wallis Annenbe...

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting their third child! I am honestly quite surprised. And curious, so I looked up the timeline. May 10-15 was the whole-ass saga between Chrissy and Alison Roman, much of which was played out on Twitter. Then mid-June, she had her breast implants removed after announcing it publicly weeks beforehand, and then she celebrated the successful surgery with a boob cake. So… was she pregnant that whole time? I ask because she’s already far enough along to debut a second-trimester bump in John Legend’s music video for “Wild.” Here’s the video:

First of all, I friggin’ love Gary Clark Jr. and if you’re going to do a song with “feat. Gary Clark Jr,” you better given him something bluesy to sing and you better put him in the damn video. I would have much preferred a video of Gary Clark Jr playing his guitar and looking into the camera instead of this mess, I’m just saying. The song is actually good (or good-ish), but the video is horrendous, it’s just a budget version of a Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition behind-the-scenes video, basically. Chrissy preening and pouting in swimwear. The “story” of the video is that they have hot ass-touching sex and then she throws a tantrum at dinner and then she pretends like nothing happened an hour later because she’s magically knocked up. Surprise!

Anyway, the video distracted me from the timeline. Did she know she was pregnant when she had her boob surgery? And the bigger question is: did she get pregnant immediately when that controversy with Alison Roman blew up? As in, do you think she got pregnant so people would stop bringing up her problematic old tweets? Classic baby deflection!

PS… I would let Gary Clark Jr. put a baby in me. I just wanted to make that clear.

    the video is not very good, but I love the song. And think they are very much in love and it’s very sweet.

  2. Bryn says:

    Didnt they have alot of fertility issues? I highly doubt she got pregnant so people would stop bringing up the old tweets.

    • LNG says:

      Yes she was very open that her last two pregnancies were IVF.

    • Original Jenns says:

      Exactly, definitely not something you can do spur of the moment.

      I know she was sharing pictures and info in June about her breast surgery, but is it possible it happened earlier and she was just sharing the info in June and let everyone assume it was real-time? I wasn’t really paying attention to it, so I don’t know how she was sharing/speaking about it. I just know so many celebrities hold onto photos and news, and then share, but don’t mention it all happened months ago! Maybe she wanted the privacy, but also wanted to share it with the world?

  3. Flamingo says:

    I’m really surprised that she was allowed to have elective surgery/ anesthesia while pregnant. She must have had to sign a ton of waivers of liability.

    • Grace says:

      I just read somewhere that she had a false-negative test for the surgery. I can’t imagine anyone doing the surgery knowing she was pregnant.

  4. Bibi says:

    I don’t think she had boob surgery while being pregnant, at least not knowingly. That would be too wild.

    • Flamingo says:

      Most hospitals make all women under the age of 45-50 take a pregnancy test prior to surgery. I believe surgery centers, where plastic surgery generally happens, do too. I remember having to take a ton of pre surgery pregnancy pee tests. I’m sure if they are rushing you into emergency surgery, they skip it, but I doubt implant removal was life or death emergent care.

    • Nicole r says:

      She could not have – a pregnancy test is standard before surgery. I know because that’s HOW I found out I was pregnant once! And I never did get that surgery…
      She probably had the surgery way beforehand and unveiled the results once healed.

      • Flamingo says:

        I had 9 surgeries in one year and every time they made me do a pregnancy test. I was like when do y’all think I have time to get pregnant between all of these surgeries? I also had casts and braces all over various appendages, so not especially sexy.

    • bros says:

      it’s a video-she could have been wearing a small prosthetic for making the point. whatever is showing in the video isnt necessarily THE BUMP.

  5. Lyli says:

    No good surgeon would operate a pregnant woman for an elective surgery.

    • Betsy says:

      I didn’t follow the whole implants saga; was there a reason they needed to be removed? I can see a surgeon removing them if there were a compelling reason.

      • Swack says:

        I see no problem if the woman wants them removed and that they are removed – problems or no problems.

      • Dalloway says:

        Chrissy had said on her IG that she was supposed to have them removed just before the pandemic reached lockdown because it had been over 10 years, and then had it rescheduled. So her doctor may have done the surgery so she wouldn’t get breast implant illness, which can be serious.

        or she may have gotten pregnant later.

  6. Escondista says:

    Did they say second tri? For most women, each successive pregnancy shows earlier and earlier.

    • Riemc526 says:

      That was my thought as well. Each time you get pregnant, you show earlier because your stomach muscles have already been stretched before.

  7. Lee says:

    She rubs me the wrong way, always has. But a baby announcement is always a nice thing, so congrats to them.
    On a side note, I do think she underwent her breast surgery while pregnant, the timeline is clear.

  8. B says:

    Congrats to them. Their kids are ADORABLE.

  9. Léna says:

    So it makes her only 2 months pregnant? And she is already showing! Wow

    • babsjohnson says:

      I’m pregnant with my second child and I started showing after a month and a half, it’s crazy. Now I look like I’m due next week but no, it’s for november ! I hope the belly growing will stall or I’m going to literally pop.

      • Léna says:

        Oh wow good luck! And congratulations!!

        It’s crazy how different it can be for women. My manager only started showing 5 months pregnant! While one of our colleague was showing after 3 months. But honestly I didn’t think it was possible 2 months pregnant haha

      • Watson says:

        That’s what happened to me as well. With each successive child i showed earlier. My body knew what was up. Congrats on your pregnancy!!

      • JanetDR says:

        I remember digging out my maternity underwear and forgoing jeans even before I did my home test! It was crazy how quickly it happened. I was at least 4-5 months before I bought any maternity clothes the first time through.

    • Cdnkitty says:

      I was going to say, by the time I was on my 3rd pregnancy everything just popped that much sooner and it was way harder to hide.

      And ultimately, whatever – she can do whatever she wants with her body and uterus and if she had surgery whilst pregnant, it’s her decision.

    • Mellie says:

      By the time I was pregnant with my third I think I was showing when we were discussing having a third…it’s crazy how your body works. BTW, she’s 21 and I still am calling it my ‘baby weight’ 🙂

  10. Case says:

    “I friggin’ love Gary Clark Jr.” SAME. Despite being nominated for Grammys he’s still relatively unknown and it kills me.

    I’m happy for them — they seem like a great couple and their children are adorable. Happy news during a pandemic is always nice.

  11. Cupcake says:

    She does IVF to get pregnant so she would have known before the surgery. Maybe she did the IVF like week after the optional surgery? I don’t think she could by second tri yet.

  12. The Other Sarah says:

    I think she had her reduction surgery much earlier than we all think. I suspected as much a couple of weeks ago when she showed off the scars – those were not 1-month old scars. They were completely healed. Breast reduction scars typically stay red and angry for several months (google lollipop breast scars).

    • AMM says:

      Agreed. I did some Instagram stalking, and she was only posting throwback photos in May, and the one video she is briefly in that month shows a smaller chest. I think she had the surgery + lift, waited to see how they looked after healing and then announced she was going to do it. I would say end of April/beginning of May for the breast reduction. Announced in mid June after she decided they looked good and wasn’t gonna redo them.

    • Nikki* says:

      I think you’re right; makes sense!

    • MissM says:

      I suspect she used her celebrity status to get around the ban on elective procedures and chose not to post about it until after elective surgery was allowed again so she didn’t face backlash. They never would have done the surgery if she was pregnant and she was trotting around in a bathing suit only a week after she supposedly had the surgery. I think she fudged the dates.

    • TrixC says:

      I don’t think having implants removed is the same procedure as a breast reduction. But I also think she had it done earlier, there’s no way a reputable doctor would operate on a pregnant woman.

  13. Laalaa says:

    To be fair, this is a great video for a quarantine era.
    I am glad they are expecting again, their kids are the reason why I like IG.

  14. Alexis says:

    They referred to this as a “surprise” so I’m thinking she unexpectedly got pregnant naturally after the two IVF babies. Maybe she wasn’t tested before surgery because she’d previously been told she couldn’t conceive naturally. I’m SURE the full story will come out at some point, knowing Chrissy.

  15. Yup, Me says:

    I really like John Legend but I don’t like his music. This song was no exception to that. Congratulations to them on the new baby. I think she’s shared enough about her post partum challenges that I’m surprised she would go through that again, but they seem to adore each other so I hope this time is easier on her.

  16. RedWeatherTiger says:

    They have the cutest babies, and I’m thrilled for them.

  17. SheaButterBaby says:

    Whew that was a terrible video 😅 Not a huge fan of either but congrats to them on the pregnancy.

  18. Lunasf17 says:

    I am so curious about the breast reduction timeline as well! It sounds like they have frozen embryos that they implanted for the past two pregnancies so I assume they did the same thing (unless it was a welcome surprise).

    • Claudia says:

      She said on Twitter that it wasn’t a planned pregnancy but a happy surprise – no IVF this time!

  19. VS says:

    Sometimes I think Chrissy seems to be a bit vain for someone like John. they seem happy; all the best with her 3rd pregnancy…..I wish her a healthy and easy one.

  20. Hildog says:

    I forgot she had her implants removed. I’m due Dec 17 and she looks like she is due around the same time. To be fair, they can remove implants in a doctors office with only a little numbing cream. My mom had it done before.

  21. Jaded says:

    Don’t give a rat’s clackers for Chrissy but Gary Clark Jr. is the BOSS.

  22. Blueskies says:

    Everything has been covered here so let me just say those horses in the video are GORGEOUS. I really stopped watching videos in the late 90s.

    (And congratulations to Chrissy and John).

  23. Florence says:

    Definitely one of those couples where one has all the talent and the partner screeches about on social media trying to be relevant.

    Congrats tho.

    • VS says:

      I agree……it is very odd they work but looks like they do. John is so amazing and seems to be more reserved; Chrissy is the one exposing their entire life on the internet and milking on her husband’s talent! Did she retire from her modeling career?

  24. Veronica says:

    Maybe they didn’t include him in the video for COVID safety reasons? He is a slightly older singer than them. Great performer, though. I have one of his albums.
