She’s been away from social media since revealing that she and her husband John Legend lost their baby Jack in late September.
But Chrissy Teigen hinted she might be ready for a full return to the medium she has dominated for years after writing an Instagram comment on Saturday.
The 34-year-old model wrote that she was grateful to have something to laugh about in a comment on Betches Media’s account.

The account specializes in reposting comic posts from around the web, particularly from Twitter.
One tweet from Kara Morehart managed to get a laugh out of the Lip Sync Battle star.
‘Just booked an eyebrow waxing appointment and I’m excited I’ll be wearing a mask so I don’t have to hear “mustache too?” she joked in the original tweet, while the new post added, ‘It’s the little things…’
‘Finally, a giggle. Thank you,’ Chrissy commented on the post.

Time to be alone: Dozens of commenters wished Chrissy well after her comment appeared. She has been silent since sharing her stillbirth on September 30
Chrissy’s comment set off dozens of commentators who rushed to share their well wishes.
‘We love you so much, Chrissy,’ one follower wrote, according to Us Weekly, and others said they would keep her family in their prayers.
Chrissy shared the sad news that she had suffered a stillbirth in a heartbreaking post from September 30 featuring moving black-and-white photos of her grieving in a hospital room.
‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,’ she wrote.

The Bring The Funny judge shared that she and John had begun calling the baby boy Jack, even though they had previously waited until just after she gave birth to name their other children Luna, four, and Miles, two.
‘To our Jack — I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you,’ she continued.
‘We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.’
Forever Jack: ‘We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack,’ explained Teigen
Disbelief: Shortly after uploading her sad news to Instagram, Chrissy took to her Twitter page to further express her shock
In the days leading up to the stillbirth, Chrissy shared that she was on ‘serious bed rest’ due to ongoing bleeding.
Despite the pregnancy complications, she kept up an optimistic demeanor on social media and repeatedly said Jack was ‘strong’ and doing well despite the bleeding.
After sharing her heartbreaking news, Chrissy expressed her shock at the turn of events on Twitter.
‘Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real,’ she wrote.
John also took to Twitter to share Chrissy’s post, while writing, ‘We love you, Jack,’ alongside five black hearts.

WHAT IS A STILLBIRTH?
A stillbirth occurs when a baby is born dead after 24 weeks of pregnancy.
If a baby dies before 24 weeks of pregnancy, it is known as a miscarriage.
Not all stillbirths can be prevented, however, not smoking or drinking, as well as not sleeping on your back and attending all antenatal appointments can reduce the risk.
What are the signs?
Signs may include the baby not moving as much as normal.
Pregnant women should contact their doctor immediately if they notice a difference to their baby’s movement.
What are the causes?
Stillbirths do not always have an obvious cause but may occur due to complications with the placenta or a birth defect.
They are also more likely to occur if women suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes or an infection that affects the baby, such as flu.
Stillbirths are more likely to occur if women are having twins or multiple pregnancies, are overweight, smoke, are over 35 or have a pre-existing condition, such as epilepsy.
What happens after a stillbirth?
If a baby has died, women may wait for their labour to start naturally or they may be induced if their health is at risk.
Bereavement support groups are available to parents who have suffered stillbirths.
Some find it helpful to name their baby or take pictures with them.
