Chrissy Teigen was positively radiant as she stepped out for the first time since announcing that she’s expecting a baby with husband John Legend . Walking the carpet at the La Mer Celebration of an Icon event in Hollywood on Tuesday (Oct. 13), the 29-year-old looked happier than ever.
The model showed off her tiny bump in a fitted white ankle-length dress, teamed with silver barely there heels and a clutch bag. She wore her long hair slicked back off her face and excitedly patted her stomach as she posed on the red carpet.
Chrissy’s outing came just 24 hours after she and John announced the happy news that they are expecting with a sweet Instagram shot. The model, who has been open about their fertility struggles, posted a black-and-white snapshot of herself and her musician husband with his hand resting on her stomach.
“John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant,” she wrote. “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! Xx.”
John, 36, shared the same photo with his social media followers with the simple caption: “We’re pregnant!”
The news comes just weeks after Chrissy spoke candidly about the couple’s struggle to conceive.
“John and I were having trouble,” she revealed during an emotional interview on her new daytime talk show FABlife. “We would have had five, six, years ago if it happened. But, my gosh, it’s been a process.
John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant :) As many of you know, we've been trying to have a baby for a while now.

Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx
“We’ve seen fertility doctors and once you open up about those things to other people you learn that a lot of other people in your life are seeing those people and they have this shame about it.”
John and Chrissy met on the set of his music video Stereo in 2007, and they tied the knot in September 2013 in Lake Como, Italy.
