Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have announced that they are officially expecting their first child after years of trying for a family together.

Teigen made the emotional announcement on Instagram with an adorable black and white picture of her sprawled across her husband along with a candid caption about their joy that they are finally about to become parents:

For the long-sighted among us, the text underneath the image reads:

John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant :) 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! Xx

Both Legend and Teigen, who have been together since 2007, have spoken out about their desire to start a family together in the past and Teigen recently told FABlife that:

"I would say, honestly, [that] John and I were having trouble. We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened, but my gosh, it’s been a process."

Naturally, after their struggles to conceive, Legend is also totally over the moon with the baby news. The singer shared his joy with the public when he posted to the news to Twitter along with his wife's Instagram link:

Huge congratulations to the happy couple!
