  • Chrissy Teigen has been hospitalised after weeks of bed rest.
  • The former model turned cookbook author said she'd been bleeding excessively for over a month.

  • The 34-year-old is currently expecting her third child with John Legend and reassured fans their baby boy is "healthy". 


Chrissy Teigen has been hospitalised following "scary" excessive bleeding during her third pregnancy.

The cookbook author, who also shares four-year-old Luna and two-year-old Miles with John Legend, took to her Instagram Stories to share that after weeks of bed rest due to excessive bleeding from her placenta for a just under a month now, she's found herself in hospital, reports CNN.

"We're talking about more than your period girls. It's definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot, and it's usually fine. Mine was a lot," Chrissy said of the bleeding.

The Chrissy's Court star said the bleeding worsened to "like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there," and therefore needed to go to the hospital.

Despite it all though, she reassured fans both she and her baby boy are doing well.

"So I feel really good, the baby's so healthy. Growing stronger than Luna or Miles. He moves a lot, so much earlier than they ever did. He's so strong, and I'm just so excited for him because he's so wonderful and just the strongest little dude. I can't wait for him."

Chrissy Teigen has spoken about her struggle to get pregnant over the years, eventually welcoming both Luna and Miles through IVF. Her third child with the Wild singer, however, was conceived naturally.

It's been a whirlwind year for the 34-year-old. On Monday she shared a photo on Instagram of herself staring blankly into the distance. "Came across this little gem from ringing in 2020," she wrote from her hospital bed. "It all makes sense now!"
