What is John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's third child's name? Couple posts first photo of newborn daughter
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: John Legend and Chrissy Teigen announced their baby girl's birth revealing the first adorable photo of the newborn and her name. The model and singer welcomed their third child on Friday, January 13, and posted a beautiful picture of the baby cuddled by her two elder siblings to their Instagram, revealing the name of their second daughter. Just hours after the birth, John, 44, sang at a private concert to celebrate the occasion by telling the crowd that he and his wife welcomed "the little baby this morning." The couple's pregnancy was officially announced earlier this month when Teigen shared two images of her growing baby bump on Instagram.
In the emotional post, the 37-year-old model wrote: 'She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens - the house is bustling and our family could not be happier. "Daddy sheds nightly tears of joy seeing Luna and Miles so full of love, and I am learning you still need diapers with a c-section!? We are in bliss. Thank you for all the love and well wishes – we feel it all! X." John shared a similar picture on his Instagram handle and captioned it, "On Friday, we welcomed Esti Maxine Stephens to our family, and our house is overflowing with love and joy. I’m in awe of Chrissy’s strength and resilience and I’m so thrilled to see how Luna and Miles embrace their baby sister. I’m so, so grateful, but that doesn’t seem like a big enough word…"
Following Esti's birth, the family has received a deluge of congratulations and well-wishes. "Welcome to the world babygurl!!’ one person commented underneath the photo, while another wrote: "Congratulations to you and your beautiful family." Presenter Katie Couric wrote, "So so happy for you & your family, @chrissyteigen 💗💗 Welcome to the world, Esti!", while Sports Illustrated editor MJ Day added: "So happy for you all. Congratulations, my heart is exploding for you!!!! 💗Esti💗."
As per People, the 44-year-old EGOT winner said, "What a blessed day," adding that despite not getting "a lot of sleep," he felt "energized." The announcement came five months after Teigen, 37, made her pregnancy public following in vitro fertilization. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way,” the model told her Instagram followers in August 2022. “So far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing.” Teigen and Legend are also the parents of daughter Luna, 6, and son Miles, 4.
Chrissy made her pregnancy announcement on Instagram back in August while sharing images of her growing baby bump. After losing their baby Jack at 20 weeks of pregnancy, she and John received the joyful news almost two years later. She eventually admitted that her late son's death was not a miscarriage as she had initially claimed but rather the consequence of a life-saving abortion. She said that after realizing that neither she nor Jack would likely survive, she had to deal with the 'tough decision' to end the pregnancy.
"Let's just call it what it was: It was an abortion. An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, ever put that together until, actually, a few months ago," confessed Chrissy, according to THR. Following the loss of Jack and subsequent struggle to conceive via IVF, Chrissy described the past few years as a "blur of emotions" in her pregnancy announcement. Now, her house has been once more filled with "joy."
