The “Bring the Funny” judge and her musician husband initially revealed in August 2020 that they were pregnant with their third child. Besides Jack, they are parents to a daughter, Luna, 4, and son, Miles, 2.
Little Luna was born in 2016 while her brother was welcomed two years later in 2018. Teigen, who is from Utah, debuted her baby bump in Legend’s “Wild” music video.
