Nine months of pregnancy doesn’t go very fast, especially not for the pregnant person.
That’s what Chrissy Teigen is reminding her followers and fans with a cheeky post this week.
Teigen, 37, is near the end of her fourth pregnancy with husband John Legend, 43, but has seemingly been weathering criticism that no baby has yet appeared. She made light of this on Instagram with a photo of herself, including her pregnant belly, sitting in a swimming pool near the ocean with her eyes closed, captioned “‘omg I feel like she’s been pregnant foreverrrrrr’ how do you think I feel thank u.”
In the comments section, journalist Yashar Ali noted, “This happens every time with your pregnancies. It’s like people lose (the) concept of time.” The model/cookbook author/TV host replied to him, saying, “I announced in August! I’m not a possum.”
Teigen followed up with two more posts showing off her pregnancy at the beach, including one captioned “storks illustrated? I don’t know,” referring to her history modeling for Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions.
Teigen and Legend have two children, Luna, 6, and Miles, 4. Teigen announced her current pregnancy in August, sharing on Instagram “the last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again.”
Teigen and Legend in 2020 explained that they lost their third child, Jack, at 20 weeks of pregnancy. At the time, the loss was reported as a miscarriage. In September, she clarified that she would call the medical event an “abortion.”
At a summit in California, Teigen explained that “Two years ago, when I was pregnant with Jack, John and my third child, I had to make a lot of difficult and heartbreaking decisions. It became very clear around halfway through that he would not survive, and that I wouldn’t either without any medical intervention,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion,” she added. “An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, ever put that together until, actually, a few months ago.”
