After a couple months of fan speculation and the couple keeping it under wraps, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend recently announced that they are expecting baby number 2!
The superstar couple will be welcoming their second child sometime in 2018.
While the gender of the child isn’t known, it has been speculated that it may be a boy based on some comments Teigen has previously made regarding her and Legend’s struggle with infertility.
While on the search for names for the new baby, Teigen has realized that gendered names are much more common and easy to come by than names that could be used for both a boy and a girl. It seems that a unisex name is something that the couple would prefer to go with this time around. Names like Taylor, Ryan, and Blair are common examples of names that are given to both boys and girls.
The model and cookbook author complained that her baby wouldn’t have a name because of how hard it has been to pick a name that is also unisex. She posted a list of unisex baby names she found on the internet and it seems that the charismatic and outspoken beauty was having none of these suggestions.

Teigen is surprised about certain differences during this pregnancy versus the last. One of which is that she’s already showing much more than she did while pregnant with Luna at similar stages. She recently questioned: “How big so fast?” next to a snapshot of her burgeoning baby bump.
This is very typical of women with who have experienced multiple pregnancies. They often start showing sooner during each subsequent pregnancy.
As far as how this pregnancy stacks up against her first one in terms of how she’s been feeling, Teigen has been very forthcoming. She has said on many occasions that she loves being pregnant and she’s standing by that claim. Though she’s been complaining about how bad her headaches have been this time around.
Pregnancy and motherhood are blessings that come with their share of confusion and sacrifices, like headaches and name uncertainty.
