Although Chrissy Teigen has been battling postpartum depression since welcoming daughter Luna last April, that hasn’t stopped her & her hubby John Legend from dreaming of expanding their fam! In fact, they’re more determined than ever to have another baby — but this next time they want a son!
Chrissy Teigen, 31, shockingly revealed on Mar. 6 that, although she appears happier than ever on social media, she’s actually been struggling with postpartum depression after giving birth to her and John Legend‘s, 38, daughter Luna, 11 months, last year. But despite the “difficult” year, John revealed to People mag that he and Chrissy still want even more kids — PPD hasn’t changed that one bit!
“It’s exciting to see how we as a couple grow together and learn how to react to the challenges and the joys,” John told the publication of when he and Chrissy became parents. And in case you’re wondering, already little Luna is a daddy’s girl — just take a look at his adorable Instagram account! “My wife’s a little bit jealous,” he admitted. “We’ve got to have a boy too, so she can feel that same feeling.” How cute is that?
This isn’t the first time the sweet pair have discussed their hopes for a bigger family. During a red carpet interview with E! News on the SAG Awards’ red carpet, Chrissy candidly told Giuliana Rancic, “Oh my God, a little boy is next for sure!” when asked about her future baby plans. So it looks like Luna will definitely be getting a baby brother at some point!
If you’re wondering how John and Chrissy can decide the sex of their baby, they’d use in vitro fertilization like they did with Luna. In fact, the couple picked Luna’s sex as well, purposefully selecting to use a girl embryo during the IVF procedure. And while there’s always the fear that Chrissy could develop postpartum depression (or PPD) again, there’s no question John will be by her side to help her through no matter what.
“He’s exactly as compassionate, patient, loving, and understanding as he seems,” the model told Glamour magazine when she first revealed her illness. “John has been incredible over the last nine months, bringing me my medicine and watching horrible reality TV with me. He is not the goofiest guy, but he has gone out of his way to indulge my sense of humor… He knows that’s what I need.”
Chrissy even added, “John and I still hope to give Luna a few siblings. Postpartum hasn’t changed that.” We can’t wait for our fav celeb couple to welcome another little one into their family, but for now? John just “wants to be a good husband and dad.” Could he GET anymore perfect?
