TV host and model Chrissy Teigen is pregnant.
They’re expecting a little girl who is a little girl by design, not chance.
Teigen and Legend chose the gender of their unborn child through a process called Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS). PGS is a perfectly legal – albeit controversial – option that is offered by some fertility clinics in the United States to patients already accessing IVF.
Teigen told People magazine this week, “I’ve made this decision… Not only am I having a girl but I picked the girl from her little embryo. I picked her and was like, ‘Let’s put in the girl.'”
“I think I was most excited and allured by the fact that John would be the best father to a little girl. That excited me,” Teigen said, when pressed on the question of why she wanted a girl.
Teigen took to Instagram in October to announce her pregnancy.
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. 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
