Chrissy Teigen was on hand to support husband John Legend at the 2022 Emmys on Monday night. The 43-year-old EGOT winner is set to premiere his song “Pieces” from his latest album, “Legend,” during the ceremony’s In Memoriam tribute. While posing for pictures on the red carpet, the couple were as cute as ever as Legend cradled Teigen’s baby bump.
“Normally we would not do a new song in a situation like this. We listened with skepticism which quickly turned to wild enthusiasm. This is an incredulous powerful moving song,” Emmys executive producer Reginald “Reggie” Hudlin told Deadline last week. “You guys are all fans of John Legend, you know how he can grab straight in your heart and break you down . . . A John Legend performance is always something to be excited about and the song is unique and special and uniquely suited to the context we’ll be putting it in.”
Legend has plenty to celebrate lately. In addition to his Emmys performance and his new album, he and the 36-year-old Cravings founder are currently expecting another child. Teigen announced the exciting news in August, sharing a photo of her growing belly on Instagram. “[T]he last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again,” she wrote in the caption. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way.”
Teigen added: “Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still. I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing.” Their baby will join their 6-year-old daughter Luna and 4-year-old son Miles.
