Both Legend and Teigen, who tied the knot in 2013, have been candid over the years about how the journey to parenthood wasn’t easy.
The supermodel-turned-TV host previously revealed in 2015 that she and Legend had been trying for years to become pregnant. Then two years later, she opened up in a moving essay about her heartbreaking battle with postpartum depression after their daughter’s birth.
As for welcoming another bundle of joy, while pregnant with their son Miles in 2018, Tiegen told PEOPLE that the couple hoped to expand their family in the future with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF).
“For me, I just want to gather as many [embryos] as possible. I don’t want to do this again for the rest of my life,” she said at the time. “So it’d be nice to get a great batch of beautiful, perfect embryos and keep trying so we did it again.”
In January 2018, Teigen confirmed that the couple conceived their second child through IVF, more than two years after having previously chosen to implant a female embryo, which resulted in the pregnancy with their daughter.
Legend — who is PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive — has also spoken about how becoming parents strengthened the pair’s bond.
“[Parenthood] deepens your love for your partner because you see them in a different light going through, in our case, the trouble of actually having a kid,” he previously told PEOPLE. “Then Chrissy’s going through postpartum depression. You just see different sides of that person, and if you go through it and you learn from it and you come out the other end better for it, then it deepens and strengthens your relationship.”
