Chrissy Teigen Relieved After Revealing Her Fertility Struggles
But, when it came to her struggles getting pregnant, she and her hubby John Legend kept that to themselves...until now. During a chat on her new show FABLife, the 29-year-old Victoria's Secret supermodel came clean about what she had been going through, and now she's dishing on why she's breathing a sigh of relief.
"I just wanted to talk about it for so long," Chrissy told E! News. "It didn't feel right to tweet like, 'Ugh, doing my IVF shots again.'" After she talked about it on the show though, Chrissy got a ton of support, adding, "Usually I'm getting crap from people [on social media], but the amount of stories that were shared to both of us was really cool to see."
"Like I said, John and I have been going through this for years and it's something that has been a part of our lives and our friends have known," she continued. "So, it's just nice to have a show and kind of acknowledge it to people because I felt like I was keeping a secret from them and it was weird. So it's nice to have all my social media friends know and have them share their stories, too."
The couple was glad –and surprised- that they were able to keep their secret to themselves for so long, before deciding to share it. "I think we just have really good people around us that never said anything or else you would have known," she added. "Nobody said a thing. I swear, I have a team of maybe 60 people, John has hundreds and everyone knew. The failures, the successes, everything but it's never gotten out. We've been open about it just never public."
We can't imagine it was easy for Chrissy to share her story, but we're glad she was able to touch so many people by doing so. During the same segment, cohost Tyra Banks also shared her own struggles with fertility issues as well.
Crossing our fingers that everything works out for both of them.
