Chrissy Teigen hopes to soon add to her adorable family.

The 32-year-old model and television presenter is married to famous singer John Legend and they have one child, 19-month-old daughter Luna.

Teigen told InStyle magazine they were planning on undergoing another round of IVF soon, in the hopes of having another child.

She revealed the couple wished they had taken more eggs during her round of treatments in recent years. At the time, they had collected 20 embryos, and after narrowing them down to the ones which "are going to be good for your body" they were left with three.

"The first little girl didn't work, and then the second is Luna," she said.

They have one frozen embryo left and plan on implanting it soon.

She has previously spoken about the journey to parenthood and her struggles with IVF.

"Emotionally, it could be really hard," she told SELF magazine.


"When you have these high-highs and low-lows, and you're, like, cuckoo pants.

"You don't want to get your hopes up, but of course, you do."

But in her latest interview, Teigen said she was really happy now with her super cute family and her relationship with Legend, 38.

"I'm much luckier to have John's personality in my life than he is to have mine," she said.

"He is insanely patient and such a dork, and he loves seeing me happy, even if that means watching 'Real Housewives of Dallas' with me for two-and-a-half hours."

And he's cool with her tendency to give a lot of insight publically about their life together.

"Sometimes I don't even realise I'm oversharing," she said.
