If you’re going to troll Chrissy Teigen, you better be prepared to get shut down.

On Saturday, the 31-year-old model revealed to Entertainment Tonight that her future second child with husband John Legend would be a boy. To clarify any confusion over how she already knew the sex of her unborn infant, Teigen took to Twitter to explain that she and Legend had previously created a male embryo.

“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. So. Yeah,” she wrote, before adding, “And no, I am not pregnant.”

Unfortunately, one Twitter user was quick to criticize Teigen for using IVF to have a baby, which is also how the model conceived her first child, nine-month-old Luna.

“Did you give it a minute to try naturally or are you avoiding ‘the act?’” wrote Florida teacher Linda Wampler. “At least no political rants!”

In response, Teigen quickly clapped back saying, “Hi Linda, thanks for asking, you complete witch. I tried for about 9 years. Anything else, let me know!”

Teigen has always been vocal about her fertility struggles, so Wampler’s comment must have felt like a slap in the face.

The model first revealed she and her husband were having trouble conceiving in 2015. “We would have had kids five, six years ago if it'd happened. But my gosh, it's been a process,” she said on an episode of “FABLife.”

One month later, Teigen revealed she was expecting her first child.

Before Luna was born in April last year, the mom opened up to SELF magazine about her struggle to get pregnant. “The big question was why this wasn’t working for us when I was young and he was healthy,” she said. “I thought, people get pregnant by accident all the time! How does this happen?”

The couple then decided to try IVF, but it wasn’t an easy journey. “Emotionally, it could be really hard,” she said. “When you have these high-highs and low-lows, and you’re, like, cuckoo pants. You don't want to get your hopes up, but of course, you do.”

Now that baby Luna is here, Teigen and Legend are loving their new roles as mom and dad and are constantly sharing photos of their little one on Instagram.

Last year, the 31-year-old mom gushed to ET: “We're so happy. It's been really exciting and fun, and every day is so different, and seeing all her little changes is so cute.”

Parenthood certainly suits Teigen and Legend, and we can't wait to meet their baby boy in the future!
