Chrissy Teigen getting serious about baby number two

Model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen hopes to spend the holidays trying for baby number two with husband John Legend.

The 31-year-old has struggled with fertility issues in the past, but she reveals in the November (17) issue of InStyle magazine that she and her man are ready to try for another child in the "coming months".

Teigen plans to be implanted with a frozen embryo soon in an attempt to have a second child using in vitro fertilization.

The last time she did this, the couple ended up with daughter Luna, and Chrissy is hoping the third time is a charm too.

"The first little girl didn’t work, and then the second is Luna," Teigen explains.

A third and final embryo from a batch of 20 eggs will be implanted in the coming weeks months as the couple tries to conceive a brother or sister for one-year-old Luna, and Teigen tells the magazine she is hoping that she won't struggle with postpartum depression again if she's lucky enough to become a mom for the second time.

"I have really good days and really bad days, and I don’t tend to talk about the really bad days,” she says. “But I would hate for people to think those days didn’t exist."

Meanwhile, Legend also recently opened up about his efforts to become a dad again, revealing he and his model wife are closer than ever as they try for a second child.

"Having a baby is a big challenge for a couple, and going through that together strengthens your bond, because if you make it through (having a child), you know you can make it through anything," John told America's Cosmopolitan magazine. "I think it’s especially difficult when you can’t conceive naturally. You want to feel like everything’s working properly and want everything to be perfect, but sometimes it’s not."

Chrissy has sobered up ahead of her new battle to expand her family, recently revealing she is curbing her alcohol consumption out of fear she was drinking too much - and John has nothing but support for his wife of four years.

"We’re always honest with each other, so we discuss everything that’s on our minds," he added. "When she was thinking about how she wanted to drink less, we talked about it. I just want to support her. I want her to be happy and to live the fullest, most awesome life she can, and I want us to do it together."
