Baby on board! Chrissy Teigen revealed in an Instagram post on Monday, Oct. 12, that she and her husband, John Legend, are expecting their first child together.

“John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant,” she captioned the photo of her smiling joyously while Legend, 36, rests his left hand on her belly. “As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching!”

The 29-year-old model recently spoke out about how she and the musician have wanted children. “I would say, honestly, [that] John and I were having trouble. We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened, but my gosh, it’s been a process,” she said on an episode of FABLife that aired Sept. 21.

“I want a huge family,” she told Us Weekly in the past. “We want a lot of kids. When it happens, it happens. For us it’s hard because he’s on the road so much and I’m working. People think it happens so easily … but the stars really have to align to have a baby and it is a little miracle, so when it happens … we will be so happy.”

The Grammy winner certainly is. He tweeted an excited “We’re pregnant!” along with a link to his own Instagram post of the same photo his wife shared. 

Teigen and Legend married in September 2013 in an intimate ceremony in Lake Como, Italy.
