The “Ordinary People” singer described the loss of her last pregnancy as a sobering experience.
“When you lose a pregnancy, it’s always cautious optimism when you get pregnant again,” they said Legend. “You never know what can happen and you’ve experienced the tragedy of losing someone … so your optimism is a little bit dampened by that.”
The couple announced the loss of their third child, Jack, at just 20 weeks old, on Instagram in September 2020. In the post, Teigen told followers that she had to be hospitalized after a month of excessive bleeding. Two years later, Teigen specified that she had to undergo a life-saving abortion while carrying Jack after realizing he would not survive.
Teigen announced in August that she was expecting another child on Instagram, debuting her new baby bump.
“1 billion shots later (in the leg lately as you can see!) we have another one coming,” Teigen wrote in her caption. “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 still too nervous.”
Despite Teigen’s nerves, hope is on the horizon. According to Legend, “Everything has been great so far.”
Legend released his eighth studio album Legend on Sept. 9 through Republic Recordssharing that “vulnerability of pain, praise and healing” informed much of the record.
