UPDATE: Hey girl, hey! We finally have the details on the new addition: Welcome to the world, Miss Esti Maxine Stephens! This rainbow baby is already clearly adored, which was apparent in the debut photo Teigen shared of her being cradled by her older siblings.
According to her Instagram caption, Daddy John Legend “sheds nightly tears of joy seeing Luna and Miles so full of love.”
Teigen also apparently gave birth for the first time via C-section, which she shared with the realization she still has to wear diapers.
She says “the house is bustling and our family could not be happier,” which sounds about right for a family of five. Congratulations again to the whole family!
After weathering a stormy last few years, it’s official—Chrissy Teigen and John Legend finally have their rainbow!
Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky day for the celebrity couple, who welcomed their third baby, and singer-songwriter Dad announced the happy news during a private concert the same day.
“What a blessed day,” Legend told attendees, according to People. He also said that though he had spent a lot of time at the hospital and hadn’t gotten much sleep ahead of the event, he felt “energized” after the baby’s birth.
We haven’t heard much lately from Teigen on social media, although she was cracking jokes just a few short weeks ago about those last few grueling weeks of pregnancy (oh man, can we all relate!).
On Instagram, she shared pictures of her very pregnant belly in a bikini over the holidays with captions like, ” ‘omg I feel like she’s been pregnant foreverrrrrr’ how do you think I feel thank u,” and “storks illustrated? I don’t know.”
All jokes aside, the last three years have brought a rollercoaster of pain and joy for the model, who has been extremely candid about her journey to expand her family.
In August of last year, she shared both the exciting news of her new pregnancy and the bruises on her leg from undergoing the grueling process of IVF:
“1 billion shots later . . . we have another on the way.”
The announcement came almost exactly two years after the tragic loss of their son, Jack. Chrissy’s overwhelmingly raw and public display of grief endeared her to millions of women around the world who had also experienced miscarriage and pregnancy loss.
Teigen—who is mother to daughter Luna Simone, 6, and son Miles Theodore, 4—has always been very outspoken in sharing the raw and real aspects of her life, including her fertility struggles, her battle with postpartum depression, and her choice to give up drinking and one-year anniversary of being sober.
It appears she’s in no hurry to share her newest bundle of joy, however, and we hope she is relishing this time to privately bond with him or her.
In the meantime, we’ll be waiting patiently for more details, and sending all the love and well wishes (and sleep!) her way.
