1. It’s a boy for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend! Or, at least, it will be, when they decide to go ahead with their next round of IVF. Chrissy and John weathered criticism in the past for choosing to use their female embryo when trying for their daughter Luna, and now Chrissy finds herself shouting down haters again, clarifying that a male is actually their only option, as it’s the embryo they have left. As for us, we’re just already looking forward to these adorable brother-sister Snapchat moments!
