Chrissy Teigen: I’m getting big, fast
Chrissy Teigen is shocked by just how “big” she has become while pregnant with her second child.
The 31-year-old model - who revealed earlier this month she and husband John Legend are to be parents again - thinks she’s gained far more weight than she did when expecting her daughter Luna, 19 months, and wants her fans to be honest as to whether or not it’s “normal” to have a larger bump the second time around.

The ‘Lip Sync Battle’ star announced the family’s happy news in a sweet video posted on Instagram last week.
The clip showed Chrissy pointing at her stomach and asking her daughter: “Luna, what’s in here?” to which the little girl replies, “Baby!”
Chrissy had previously revealed she would love to be “pregnant for the rest of her life”.
She gushed: “I feel good, I feel good, we’re still trying ... I’m going for I mean hopefully in the next few years because for me I really want to just knock ’em out. That’s my dream, I want to just be pregnant kind of for the rest of my life. Not for the rest of my life, but the rest of my fertile life. So we’ll see ...”
