Congratulations are in order for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend!

Just almost a month after revealing that she’s been struggling to conceive, the model announced on Monday (Oct. 12, 2015) that she’s currently expecting her first child with her husband.

Teigen, 28, broke the happy news on Instagram, writing:

John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant :) 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

According to her, she’s been trying with Legend, 36, for quite some time. In a September episode of her new talk show The FAB Life, Teigen admitted that she started seeing fertility doctors because she was having a hard time getting pregnant.

“I will say, honestly, John and I are having trouble,” Teigen confessed. “We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened … But my gosh, it’s been a process!”

Previously, Teigen spoke about her plans to expand her family, telling DuJour in May that she’s ready to “have some babies” after her husband has finished next album.

“We want a lot of kids,” she said at the time, adding that she’d also like to adopt. “I feel like sometimes when people give birth, they give birth to a tiny part of their brain. Whatever they thought they would be goes out the window and they kind of lose their minds … I am 1,000 percent not going to have an Instagram account for my baby. It will not have a hashtag. If I have a hashtag for my baby, just kill me.”
