New to Bounty?
Chrissy Teigen is mid-way through her third pregnancy. The 34-year-old mum-of-two is expecting another son with husband 41-year-old, John Legend.
In true Chrissy style, the Lip Sync Battle personality is sharing the pregnancy, warts and all with her adoring fans.
And there’s a lot to share. From her bed rest to accidentally sharing the gender and more, Chrissy is proving to be a very entertaining mum-to be.
And baby will make five!
The pair share two children, four-year-old Luna, and two-year-old Miles who were conceived via IVF. This time around they’ve fallen pregnant naturally, something they were never sure could happen for them.
John confirmed their third baby was unplanned during an interview on the Today show, he said: “It was a surprise. A little quarantine surprise, I guess you could say. But we’re very excited, and we’re grateful for all the well wishes we’ve gotten from people all around the world. Thank you so much.”
As per usual, Chrissy has been very candid about all the highs and lows of her pregnancy experience, most recently revealing a particularly bothersome pregnancy symptom.
Taking to Twitter, Chrissy posted: “I’m having a lot of pain on the bridge of my nose. Super tender. I know when you’re [pregnant], they say your nose ‘spreads’ and I believe it because I’ve seen it on myself! But has it ever caused pain for anyone?”
And the Cravings author was not alone.
“[My nose] was extra puffy,” wrote one follower. “My 3rd baby was almost ten pounds and I’m pretty sure my nose carried half the weight. I felt extra sniffly,” she added.
Another Twitter added: “Omg I swear I’ve noticed this! Like I can see my nose getting bigger and every once in a while will feel a mild pain like I got hit in the nose! I thought I was nuts! Pregnancy is so grand!”
While the nose spreading is a visible symptom, Chrissy has also admitted to suffering migraines throughout her pregnancy. And the model is looking to a common beauty treatment for relief.
Chrissy took to Twitter to share the news that she was cleared to receive Botox during her pregnancy. Not for fine lines and wrinkles, but for her headaches!
“I get really really bad pregnancy headaches,” she tweeted. “Was thrilled to be cleared to do neck muscle Botox along with a crazy combo of beta blocker shots and radio wave frequency something something doctor terms. Anyhow man it’s just so bad but I see the light finally.”
After one of her followers asked for more information, the open star explained that “Jaw Botox for my grinding was a MUST for my regular headaches.”
“You can also do behind the brow for migraines,” she wrote. “Life changing.”
She went on to recommend that her followers seek medical advice, tweeting: “Yeah if you have the means to go to a neurologist instead of cosmetic it’s a lot better and safer because they talk to your OB,”

Chrissy Teigen is hospitalised due to “constant” bleeding
Chrissy Teigen has posted a series of updates to Instagram Stories, revealing she has been hospitalised as she is “constantly” bleeding.
“I was always, always bleeding. The blood has been going on for a little less than a month. More than a period, definitely not spotting,” explains Chrissy to her followers.
“Every time I’d go to the bathroom, it would be blood. Even just laying there, it would be blood. Today the big difference was it was like if you’d turn a faucet on to low and leave it,” she says.
“I was at the point today where I was never stopping bleeding, and that’s obviously really bad.”
Chrissy also asked her fans and any medical professionals who are following her to stop trying to guess what’s wrong or to diagnose the problem.
“You have to trust that I have very good doctors who know the entire story, there’s so much more than you guys could ever imagine. Trust me when I say they know.”
In the “simplest terms” Chrissy explains where her pregnancy is currently at.
“My placenta is really weak. I feel really good, the baby is so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles (Teigen’s two children). He moves a lot, much earlier than they ever did. He’s so strong, and I can’t wait for him,” she explains.
“But – he’s the strongest, coolest dude in the s**tiest house. His house is falling apart. He didn’t have the strongest chance at the very beginning. So all we’re doing now is trying to make sure he’s got a lot of fluid around him, and I’m resting as much as possible.”
Chrissy is at the half-way mark of her pregnancy and says she is trying to hope for the best.
“It’s hard because I’m in that weird in-between time of it being really dangerous to try anything. Basically if I can make it through the next few weeks, we can get through the danger zone. But we have to get through this first. It is scary. We’re on it, we’re trying everything we can.”
Chrissy’s third pregnancy is a family affair!
Sharing a gorgeous image of herself in the bath while Luna stood and soaped up her mamma’s hair, Chrissy penned: “Every day she makes me a warm (not hot, chill!) bath and refuses to let me wash my own hair. Girls, man. @johnlegend how did we get so lucky with lulu?”
Bed rest can’t keep her down
Chrissy’s doctors ordered her on strict bed rest early in the pregnancy due to her “difficult pregnancy.”
And for a go-getter like Chrissy, staying still is proving a challenge.
“I didn’t really know that bed rest was, like, in bed,” she admitted online.
“I honestly thought bed rest was you have to really really really relax, stay home; I thought it could be couch rest.”
Despite her new bed-house, Chrissy still has exciting things in the works for her business, Cravings, and bed rest is not going to stop her.
The star shared an image showing her hard at work at the exciting new projects, with her assistant by her side.
“We have something verrrrrrrry cool coming and I CANNOT WAIT!!!”
Bed rest means bed rest!
The star is on bedrest due to issues with her placenta.
“Been in bed for all but 5 mins of the last 24 hours,” she wrote on Twitter.
“Lord it’s kind of crappier than it sounds. On punishment for saying the first two pregnancies were easy peasy.”
Speaking with fans, Chrissy assured her followers not to worry about the baby.
“Its growing beautifully, everything’s good. I’m feeling really good, but my placenta’s really, really weak and it’s causing me to really bleed a lot.” she shared.
“Basically it’s just pretty high-risk and, you know, it’s just this poor thing has been through so much already.”
A natural pregnancy this time around
Both of Chrissy’s previous pregnancies have been through in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the model has previously said that she didn’t think she could get pregnant naturally.
This time around she did!
“I didn’t think I could get pregnant naturally anyway. So the odds just felt…bad,” the star shared with her fans.
“Part of me misses the safety of my perfect embryos, created in their little dish. They felt untouchable and safe. Now I feel a bit…eggshelly,”
When pregnancy cravings go bad
Hilarious mum-to-be Chrissy Teigen has shared an unusual pregnancy symptom.
The star joked that her tongue was literally “falling off’ after eating too many sour lollies at night.
Alongside a video showing her damaged tongue, the Sports Illustrated model shared: “I suck on them, and after them, I have my blow pops and then it is falling off my tongue!”
The foodie went on to talk about all the ways this was impacting her life.
“I’m trying to eat my noodles, but it’s so painful but it’s hard to eat anything hot spicy especially – even just hot temperature,” she said.
She added: “I don’t know how to eat it, I think I have to put saran wrap them around my tongue or something like a tongue condom or some sort.”
A video clip announcement
Just like Katy Perry before her, Chrissy used a video clip to share her pregnancy news.
The Cravings author chose the music video for husband John Legend and Gary Clark Jr.’s new single, Wild, to share the happy news that baby #3 was on the way.
At the end of the video which show John and Chrissy frolicking, fighting and more, the pair are joined by their kids, Luna and Miles at the 3:21 mark, before standing at the shore when EGOT winner, John hugged Chrissy from behind while she cradles her budding belly as the camera zoomed in.
Dah-dah …. baby on the way!
