Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have been very candid about the difficulty in conceiving children they were facing in the past. The 31-year-old model and the 38-year-old musician have daughter Luna Simone Stephens who was conceived through in-vitro-fertilisation and born in 2016.
Now, Chrissy shared the news that she and John expect their second child to be male, since that was the only embryo they have left for another IVF.
However, it seems like there is always someone too insensitive to appreciate the honesty of a celebrity.

In an interview, Chrissy said her next child would be a boy; she later clarified how come she was so certain on Twitter
That’s when a complete stranger – Linda Wampler, 62, from Florida – barged in with an extremely inappropriate question.
What prompted the exchange was Chrissy appearing on Entertainment Tonight where she said she and John would next have ‘a little boy for sure’, which some people understood as her engineering the gender.
“Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy”, Chrissy explained on Twitter. “And no, I am not pregnant”.
Soon afterward, Linda replied to Chrissy’s tweet: “Did you give it a minute to try naturally or are you avoiding ‘the act?’ At least no political rants!”

Chrissy responded, explaining that she had been trying unsuccessfully for nine years

“The big question was why this wasn’t working for us when I was young and he was healthy”, Chrissy told Self magazine last year. “I thought, People get pregnant by accident all the time! How does this happen?”

Chrissy has spoken openly about the difficulty of the in-vitro fertilization process: “Emotionally, it could be really hard. When you have these high-highs and low-lows, and you’re, like, cuckoo pants”.
When faced by tweets posted by Chrissy’s fans who tried to confront Linda about her tweets, the retiree justified her actions with an even more aggressive stance:
“Teigen says despicable things so this way, she gets to reap the results!”, she said, implying that the model somehow deserves such abuse.
However, it was soon discovered that most of her Twitter activity comprises of insults aimed at numerous celebrities including Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Jamie Fox and the cast of Saturday Night Live.
