Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are having a baby, they announced Friday evening in a couple of Instagram posts.

"John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant," the 29-year-old model 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!"

Legend, 36, kept it simple as he posted the same black-and-white photo of them sitting on a couch, smiling their faces off: "We're pregnant!"

"John and I were having trouble. We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened," Teigen said in September, chatting with Tyra Banks on "Fablife" and revealing that they'd been to fertility doctors. "But, my gosh, it's been a process."

Maybe it was the chicken wings and chicken butt that did the trick?

The couple, who met in 2006 while filming his music video for "Stereo," got engaged in 2011 and were married in Italy in September 2013.
