The 23-year-old model and girlfriend of Robin Thicke took to Instagram Stories Wednesday to open up about her second child on the way with the “Blurred Lines” singer, 41. “I hear about miscarriages and it scared me. [Were] you scared or [are] you still scared?” one fan asked using the app’s new questions feature. “I had one before Mia,” Geary shared. “But I’m not scared, worrying or stressing out too much isn’t good for the baby. Life happens and we can’t control everything.” Want all the latest pregnancy and birth announcements, plus celebrity mom blogs? Click here to get those and more in the PEOPLE Babies newsletter.

Getting married is the easy part, seeing how you are together after having babies is the hard part,” the soon-to-be mother of two wrote on her Instagram Story Wednesday. “We’re in 2018. Not the 1950’s. Women don’t NEED to get married before having babies. Y’all need to chill,” added Geary, who is currently 12 weeks along.
