Chrissy Teigen has started another IVF cycle in the hopes of growing her family. The 36-year-old shared the news on Instagram this week. 

The news comes more than a year after Chrissy, who suffers from endometriosis, lost her son Jack after a difficult pregnancy. 

She was 20 weeks pregnant when she announced in September 2020 that she had lost her unborn child. Chrissy and her husband, John Legend, were both devastated by the loss. 

Chrissy says she started IVF again to "save as many eggos" as possible and "hopefully make some strong, healthy embryos".

She also begged people to stop asking if she is pregnant. 

"I honestly don’t mind the shots…they make me feel like a doctor/chemist…but the bloating is a b***h, so I humbly beg you to stop asking if I’m pregnant," the 'Cravings' author wrote. 

Chrissy says she understands that people mean well but it is not appropriate to ask women whether they are pregnant or not. 

"I know it’s said with excited, good intentions, it just kind of sucks to hear because I am the opposite of pregnant! But also like please stop asking people, anyone, if they’re pregnant. 

"I said this in the comments and got yelled at because the internet is wild but I’d rather be the one to tell you and not some poor woman who will look you in the eyes through tears and that’s how you finally learn," she concluded.

Chrissy and John have two children together, Luna (4) and Miles (2). During an interview with Vogue magazine in 2017, Chrissy revealed some of the things she enjoys about being a mom.

"Number one, taking photos. And number two, hearing all her [Luna's] new words," she said. The model added that waking up super early is the hardest part of being a mom.
