A very preggers Chrissy Teigen obviously can't wait to welcome her baby into the world later this year, but for now she's focused on another one of her "babies" coming to life!

On Wednesday night, the 30-year-old model debuted her first-ever cookbook on Instagram and couldn't help but gush over her excitement about finally seeing all her hard work pay off.

"I am finally holding this thing in my hands and I can't believe it is officially real!" she wrote on Instagram beside a photo of the book. "I actually feel like it's a movie prop or something. I'm so excited for you guys to see - I really really hope you love everything in it and find recipes to make for those you love for years to come."

!!!!! I am finally holding this thing in my hands and I can't believe it is officially real! I actually feel like it's a movie prop or something. I'm so excited for you guys to see - I really really hope you love everything in it and find recipes to make for those you love for years to come...pot pie soup with crust crackers, Italian sausage meatloaf, cholula honey butter fried chicken, buttery scallops with the perfect sear, spicy black bean veggie chili, my herb and garlic goat cheese stuffed chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto ohhhhhhh there is so much I am excited about, this baby has so much love in it!

She added, "There is so much I am excited about, this baby has so much love in it!"

However, Teigen's use of the word "baby"—considering how pregnant she currently is—caused a quite a bit of commotion on Twitter, making people think she gave birth early.

The Sports Illustrated model quickly hopped on her account to assure people she's still pregnant and promise she wasn't trying to trick anyone into thinking anything.

Teigen and John Legend announced their pregnancy in October and are expecting their little one—a baby girl!—sometime this spring.

As the model's baby bump continues to grow (along with other parts of her body), she's sought some fashion advice from her good pal, Kim Kardashian.

"She told me to go stretchy," she told InStyle Australia last week. "I always wanted to be the person who showed off the bump because it looks beautiful and I think you should embrace it."

She added, "Kim does that well and I love seeing that belly of hers and I know Kanye [West] does too. We're lucky to be with men who find pregnancy sexy. Thank God!"
