*Entertainer John Legend and his wife, model Chrissy Teigen want to share some GREAT news with you.

Via Instagram, on Monday, the couple announced that they are expecting their first child.

“John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant,” Chrissy wrote.

“As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. 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.”

“We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx,” she added.

The news comes weeks after Teigen, 29, got candid about the couple’s struggle to conceive, writes PEOPLE.

“John and I were having trouble,” she said during an emotional interview on her new daytime talk show, FABlife.

“We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened. But, my gosh, it’s been a process.”

“I wanted to talk about it for so long,” she recently said. “It didn’t feel right to ever tweet, ‘Ugh, doing my IVF shots again.’ It just sounded silly. It definitely was not planned in that episode at all.”
