The model is expecting her second child through IVF with husband John Legend, but as of yet the gender is still unknown. 

Chrissy Teigen isn’t usually one for staying tight-lipped. As the undisputed Queen of Twitter she’s taken down many a Trump, clapped back at trolls and leaked her own private texts to her husband John Legend.

Which is why it comes with great surprise that the model isn’t about to (knowingly) reveal more details about her second child…just yet.

“We knew when we put it [the embryo] in but John was like, ‘Make sure you don’t say it. Let’s have one thing for us’ and of course I’m probably going to end up saying it but I’m just going to do this favour to him for as long as I can,” Teigen shared with E! News’ Sibley Scoles on the set of Lip Sync Battle.

The couple, who struggled to conceive for nine years before having IVF treatment has spoken honestly in the past about the heartbreak she’s felt. 

However - it’s extremely likely that their second child is a boy, as Teigen has previously revealed that a boy “is the embryo we have left”.

When pressed about potential baby names, Teigen admitted that it’s “tough” trying to pick one.

“Names are tough. What I learned was never share your ideas,” she explained.

“If you have a name idea, somebody is going to be like ‘No, I knew a person by that name in high school and they were gross.’ That always happens.”

But the couple have agreed on one thing: Chrissy gets to pick the name this time around.

“John picked Luna so I decided I get to pick this one. I don’t know what to do. Take it to Twitter.”

Take it to Twitter, Teigen. We’re ready!
