A Legend has been born. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen has welcomed their new baby girl into the world. The couple announced their new arrival on Instagram.
According to E! Online, the couple welcomed their new arrival on Thursday, April 14, 2016. This is the couples first child and her name is Luna Simone Stephens. Their bouncing baby girl weighed 6 pounds and 11 ounces.
Teigen has been candid about the couple’s struggles to conceive and revealed last year they had undergone IVF. She said in December they are expecting a baby girl. In the IVF process, Chrissy selected that the gender of their child be a girl.
“I’ve made this decision. Not only am I having a girl, but I picked the girl from her little embryo. I picked her and was like, ‘Let’s put in the girl.’
“I think I was most excited and allured by the fact that John would be the best father to a little girl. That excited me. It excited me to see…just the thought of seeing him with a little girl. I think he deserves a little girl. I think he deserves that bond.”
The pair celebrated their upcoming arrival with two baby showers. One of the baby showers was hosted by their pal and well known celebrity Kim Kardashian. This party had a white and pink theme.
One of the showers was held in New York in March and another one in Los Angeles. John and Chrissy were the guests of honor at both events. One of the parties even showed Legend’s face prominently on various desserts, including a big cake. The image use was one from when John Legend was a child.
John Legend joked on an interview in February about the cuteness of their child.
“Chrissy says it’s a lot of pressure though because everybody says she’s going to be so cute—what if she’s not that cute? Every baby is not that cute. Let’s just hope that she’s healthy and that’s all we are focused on.”
John and Chrissy are both celebrities and have a demanding schedule. Chrissy addressed how they would manage their busy schedule with their new child.
“I like a little chaos in life. Then baby came into our world, and we were like, ‘That’s cool but let’s do more!’ Not to mention, I actually have more energy now than before I was pregnant.
“I want to get her into traveling really young. As soon as someone even steps on the plane with a baby you’re like, ‘Ughhh! I feel bad for them!’ And that’s going to be us now.”
Teigen wants to have a big family and expects that she will be pregnant throughout her 30s. There are not enough embryos left for the amount of kids that Chrissy wants, so she expects to go through the IVF process again. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have been married since 2013, but the couple has been together for seven years and were engaged in 2011.
“We’ve been together so long, and sometimes we look at each other and we’re like, ‘I know everything about you and you know everything about me. But we have no idea what we’re going to be like as parents. I think it’ll be really fun. I’m excited.”
Congrats John Legend and Chrissy Tiegen! Welcome to the world Luna Simone Stephens!
