Chrissy Teigen Debuts Itty Bitty Baby Bump One Day After Announcing Pregnancy

10/14/2015 at 10:15 AM ET

Chrissy Teigen brought a special plus one to La Mer’s Celebration of an Icon party in Los Angeles on Tuesday night — her brand new baby bump!

The model, who announced on Monday that she and her husband, musician John Legend, are expecting their first child with a sweet Instagram post, was glowing as she showed off the early stages of her belly.

Teigen, 29, hit the skincare line’s green carpet in a sleek-fitting dress with a bustier-like neckline and thin spaghetti straps. Her hair was swept back and worn down, and she opted for a pair of  Tamara Mellon Lipstick Specchio sandals in silver.

The exciting announcement came after a lengthy struggle to conceive, which Teigen spoke candidly about.

“John and I were having trouble,” she said during her new daytime talk show, FABlife, adding that the couple had hoped to have children by now but it’s been such “a process.”

“As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now,” Teigen wrote on Instagram Monday. “It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family.”

There’s no bump! She’s glowing and as lucious as ever but no bump. This will be the longest bump watch/pregnancy ever! Jessica Simpson’s pregnancies will have nothing in her! Haha

cds on

Geez, why doesn’t she just wait until after her 1st trimester.

Sally on

Oh my word! I must be pregnant too, that’s exactly how my belly looks in profile.

catfite on

I love Chrissy and I am happy for her and her husband but that is no bump. My food baby bump is bigger than that! LOL

Juli on

I’m really happy for Chrissy and John, but there’s no baby belly there, at least not yet.

Criskayl on

Wow! It looks like she ate a sandwich…. Stupid article.

Guest on

Stop trying to create a story where one doesn’t exist. Her stomach is flat.

Amanda on

LOL this is ridiculous. There is no “bump” here. Smh.

Anyway, congrats to John and Chrissy.

Kim on

Um don’t see a bump. She looks great! Happy for her!

Lynn on

Good when her HORRIBLE talk show is CANCELLED she’ll have time to be a mom and stop bullying people with that loud mouth!

Linda on

They are such a cute couple. So happy for them. Wish I had their life

heather on

That is exactly what she’s looked like for months. There’s no bump. People Magazine is ridiculous.

EBurdet on

I’m sorry…but there is absolutely NO baby bump on the gorgeous Chrissy here! In fact, her stomach is flatter than just about every non-pregnant woman I know. You should change the headline on this one, for Chrissy, and for the rest of the world!

LOVE HER! SHE IS SO GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

M on

I’m very happy for them and hope all goes well, but that’s not a baby bump. That’s a sandwich she had a few hours prior.

Amy on

Um… where’s the picture of her belly? It’s certainly not the picture posted?

Anonymous on

Wow that’s not even in tiny bump radar. I’m jealous. I’m not pregnant but I have my period and I look like I should be going into labor at any moment. LOL

Very happy for her. After suffering multiple miscarriages and chemical pregnancies I’m so happy for anyone that gets pregnant! Jealous too! Hee.

It probably is after her 1st trimester. It’s her first, she’s tiny to behin with and has great abs. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s 16+ weeks. I looked like that at 20.

Melisa on

I ate mongolian beef last night and my food baby bump was bigger than that!

K.B. on

Where’s the bump? Bless her heart, she’s so happy though!

just my thoughts on

This couple seems truly in love every time I see them, it makes me smile and feel so happy for them and this precious life they are so excited about having.
I hope she enjoys her pregnancy , and that their child is healthy and happy 😉

Jennifer on

Sadly, that baby already has a bigger brain than she does!

Erin on

She looks beautiful. Happy for them, such a blessing. On another note, Chrissy needs some additional training for her presence on the Fablife. She is unnatural and awkward, and whenever she’s doing segments with the other women, they are so much more comfortable than her. Her eye contact, smiling, laughing, etc. is off.

Vanessa on

Hang on…let me get my magnifying glass out and find this so called “bump”. Please. I’ve had a baby bump for as long as I remember and I’ve never had a baby. Hate the term and hate the fact they’re trying to “promote” said bump when there is nothing there.

All in all, congrats to them both.

TruthHurts on

Think she’s insufferable now? This is one of those media driven pregnancies that is going to last for what seems like 5 or 6 trimesters.

Kate on

LOL, you’re joking, right?

Patent on

By the looks of it I must be pregnant and extremely over due….Did they really just call that a bump? She looks like she always has slender!

pat on

Bump? Are you kidding me? Where?

Mara on

She looks gorgeous in that dress.

Melissa on

baby bump LOL um don’t see a bump, she’s glowing though for sure. Congratulations!
