Chrissy Teigen is currently pregnant with her second child, after welcoming her daughter Luna Simone Stephens with husband John Legend in 2016.
The couple have been open about their fertility struggles in the past, with Chrissy telling InStyle US that the couple had extracted three viable embryos when they went through fertility treatments several years ago. "The first little girl didn't work, and then the second is Luna,” she told InStyle of the three healthy and usable embryos she had extracted.
In a new interview with People, Chrissy revealed she and John went through the process again before her current pregnancy.
“For me, I just want to gather as many [embryos] as possible. I don’t want to do this again for the rest of my life,” the model explained of the stressful process. “So it’d be nice to get a great batch of beautiful, perfect embryos and keep trying so we did it again.”
“You do the whole process again to try to get as many embryos and eggs as possible," she said. "Everyone is freezing everything and then you make the embryos out of what you freeze and try to make viable, perfect embryos.”
Chrissy first revealed the couple's struggles in a segment on her talk show FABLife in 2015.
"We would have had kids five, six years ago if it happened, but it's been a process," she said. "Any time someone asks me if I'm going to have kids I'm just like 'one day you're going to ask that to the wrong girl, who is really struggling, and it's going to be really hurtful.' I hate it. Stop asking me!"
