John Legend and Chrissy Teigen welcomed their rainbow baby on January 13
The iconic singer was beaming while holding his daughter Esti, born earlier this month, in a picture posted to Instagram yesterday. Tucked into the crook of Legend’s arm, the newborn seems to be the spitting image of her famous father. “Our love,” wrote the famous hitmaker. His wife responded with ” eee, I love her.” Teigen also shared a closeup of Esti yesterday, and it’s an intimate look at the newborn snuggled up in a blanket with her mama. It’s pretty clear this sweet arrival has captured the entire family’s hearts from the start.
It’s clear that new big sister and brother Luna and Miles couldn’t be prouder! They got in on the action in a family photo taken by Teigen.
“She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens – the house is bustling and our family could not be happier,” she wrote in the caption. “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!”
John Legend shared the same photo on his Instagram account, saying, “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…”
The couple suffered the loss of their third child, Jack, in 2020. They lost when Chrissy was 20 weeks pregnant, due to a partial placenta abruption. But after surviving such a shattering loss, they decided to try again. She started IVF treatments last year, and on August 3 took to Instagram to reveal she was pregnant.
“The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again,” she wrote. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way.”
Legend has mentioned “going for four.” Congratulations on a healthy, growing family.
