A very pregnant Chrissy Teigen proudly showed off her growing baby bump by slipping into a bikini and frolicking on the beach with her son Miles by her side.
And never one to shy away from a comedic moment, the model and television personality made light of her burgeoning belly by referencing her professional modeling debut in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue back in 2010.
‘storks illustrated? I don’t know,’ she joked in the caption of the picture that showed her keeping a close eye on the four-year-old as they both stood a couple of feet into the ocean water.

It didn’t take long before her husband, John Legend, got a look at the image and decided to share his opinion on the matter.
‘”Storks Illustrated” is some of your best work,’ the musician wrote in the caption, in a vote of confidence for the pregnant version of his wife.
In the new photo, Teigen can be seen looking down at Miles dressed in a black bikini with a matching top that she had hanging off her shoulders.
She decided to wear her tresses long and flowing in the back, but pulled it off her face in the front with some sort of hair tie.

Just a few feet to his mother’s right, Miles looks to be jumping up and down in the water with a big beaming smile on his face.
Later in the day the proud mama dropped in a video to her Instagram page of herself striking a few poses into the mirror in that same black bikini.
‘@mondayswimwear coming through with a comfortable and cute boulder holder,’ she wrote in the caption.
Husband John Legend also took to his Instagram page and shared several photos taken on the beach as they kicked off their holiday vacation.
‘Our holiday has begun,’ he gleefully announced in the caption of the post, which included one photo of the couple with their six-year-old daughter Luna.
There’s also two images of her playing with her younger brother in the sand and in the ocean.

Teigen was 24 when she made her initial splash in the pages of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in February 2010.
It turns out Teigen got a vote of confidence from friend and fellow model Brooklyn Decker when she recommended her to SI editors, which led to her big break, according to the publication.
The shoot with the Utah native impressed enough people at Sports Illustrated that she ended up being named Rookie Of The Year.
Teigen would go on to reach what many models feel is among the ultimate honors in the business by appearing on a SI cover in 2014 alongside Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge.

Fast forward a few years, and the former Lip Sync Battle host posed again for Sports Illustrated, only this time she was just six months after giving birth to her daughter Luna.
Initially hesitant to say ‘yes’ to the gig so soon after giving birth, Teigen not only went ahead with the photoshoot, but she also ended up agreeing to do it in a bikini, as opposed to a one-piece.
‘It’s been a while since I’ve done anything swimsuit,’ she said at the time, which was in 2017. ‘I haven’t shot since baby. But of course you know that [SI Swimsuit editor] MJ [Day] and everybody at Sports Illustrated in general is going to embrace your body no matter what’s happening and embrace the changes.’
Teigen revealed they were expecting her fourth child together in an Instagram post in August. The couple tragically lost their son, Jack, in 2020 following complications during her pregnancy.
