The news comes just weeks after Teigen opened up about her fertility issues on “FabLife,” revealing that she and Legend were having difficulties with conceiving.

"We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened," she shared. "It's been a process. We've seen fertility doctors.”

This is the first child for both Legend and Teigen, who married in September 2013 in Italy.
