John Legend talks 'difficult' fertility struggles with Chrissy Teigen
John Legend says his fertility struggles with wife Chrissy Teigen were a "difficult" experience.

The 38-year-old singer discussed using in vitro fertilization in an interview with Cosmopolitan following news he and Teigen plan to have a second child.

"Having a baby is a big challenge for a couple, and going through that together strengthens your bond because if you make it through [having a child], you know you can make it through anything," Legend told the magazine.

"I think it's especially difficult when you can't conceive naturally," he added. "You want to feel like everything's working properly and want everything to be perfect, but sometimes it's not."

"I wouldn't say we can't conceive naturally, but I would say that it's enough of a challenge where it felt like we needed help," the star said. "We're lucky that we're living in an age where we can conceive in other ways. [IVF] brought us Luna and hopefully it will bring us a few more awesome kids, too."

Legend and Teigen used in vitro fertilization to conceive daughter Luna, who was born in April 2016. Teigen confirmed in an interview with Cosmopolitan this month that she and Legend plan to have another baby.

"We're going to try to have a child," the 31-year-old model said. "We're going to have to do something super hard, which is the IVF process, all over again."

Teigen had told Entertainment Tonight in January that "a little boy" is next for her and Legend. She later explained on Twitter, "I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left" from the IVF process.


Liam Neeson stars as Deep Throat in new trailer for 'Mark Felt'
Liam Neeson looks to expose the truth regarding the Watergate scandal in 1974 in the new trailer for upcoming political thriller, Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House.

Neeson stars as the titular character in the clip, released Wednesday, who is a top official at the FBI and receives the nickname Deep Throat from those he leaks information to at The Washington Post.

"Here's what we know. The men who broke into the Watergate are not the end of this but the beginning," the actor says of the scandal that involved five men breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters and which ended with President Richard Nixon's resignation.

"The White House has no authority over the FBI... No one can stop the driving force of an FBI investigation. Not even the FBI," Neeson also says as he grapples with White House officials and with those within his own organization.

Mark Felt, from director Peter Landesman, also stars Diane Lane, Michael C. Hall, Josh Lucas, Tom Sizemore, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ike Barinholtz, Noah Wyle, Kate Walsh, Bruce Greenwood, Maika Monroe and Brian d'Arcy James and arrives in theaters on Sept. 29.

The 43-year-old British actress, who plays Cersei Lannister on the HBO series, goes on a date with Richard III in a video for Kasabian's single "Ill Ray (The King)."

"Our video for Ill Ray (The King) is out TODAY!" Kasabian tweeted Wednesday. "Big thanks to @IAMLenaHeadey and @michaelsocha."

"The Lannisters send their regards. Check out @IAmLenaHeadey in the new @KasabianHQ music video," the Game of Thrones official Twitter account added.
