Pregnant Chrissy Teigen had us all fooled while posting her Instagram photos in the early days of expecting a baby.

Happy news she's pregnant with her third child with her husband John Legend sent waves of excitement through the showbiz circuit on Thursday.

Everyone has been super surprised but here's the ingenious ways the model, 34, has kept her pregnancy a secret.

Back in July, it was all about photo angles.

The Legend family made a beeline for Mexico where they soaked up the sun as the lockdown begun to ease amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Seemingly Chrissy hid her pregnancy throughout the holiday by the way she was posing - for instance her bump wasn't visible when she was leaning to look out of the window of the outdoor shower.

Days later, Chrissy got Miles to help out when they posed for a family portrait.

Son Miles, four, led across his mother's stomach as they sat on the sofa with John and Luna, two.

As time continued to move on, the supermodel and her family kept up with the tricks on concealing her pregnancy.

In August, Chrissy posed with her two children on a bed during story time for a heartwarming photograph.

Recently, John said the couple have learnt lots about each other even though they've been married for seven years after tying the knot in 2013.

The super star singer also said the pair had learnt a lot about parenting in this time because it's a more "intense experience".

He told The Irish News : "We had long stretches where we didn't talk before, so I don't think we've learned a lot about each other in lockdown.

"But we have also learned a lot about parenting. It's a more intense parenting experience than we've ever had. It's made us stronger and brought us together.

"It's definitely a challenge to co-parent during these times."
