In a recent interview with People , Teigen opened up about her experience utilizing in vitro fertilization in order to get pregnant with spouse John Legend. In vitro is a fertility option that involves inseminating eggs outside of the body in order to ensure they’re actually fertilized before a doctor surgically places them into the uterus. The treatment can be very emotional for many patients, since even fertilized eggs aren’t guaranteed to result in a pregnancy once they’re implanted, but for Teigen the tale aimed happily.
To People , she described the joy of ending up with more than one fertilized egg to choose from, and told the publication she ultimately implanted the one with a female embryo because she supposes Legend would be “the best father to a little girl.” That’s where the Twitter outrage starts.
A now-deleted tweet from a fan reprimanded Teigen, advising her that choosing an embryo based on its gender was messing around with a “natural bles from god.”
But Teigen didn’t take the criticism on this sensitive subject lying down. In her typical fashion, she fired back 😛 TAGEND
