John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen welcomed their third child on Friday January 13.

The couple hasn’t made a public announcement. But John confirmed the birth hours after his child’s arrival.

The singer and sometime The Voice coach told a crowd at a private concert that they welcomed “the little baby this morning.”

“What a blessed day,” he remarked.

The singer added that while he “didn’t get a lot of sleep” he “feels energized” after spending “a lot of time” at the hospital.

The birth of their baby comes after the couple experienced a pregnancy loss in October 2020.

Chrissy underwent IVF treatments

Chrissy underwent IVF treatments in order to get pregnant. The couple told their children Miles Theodore, 4½, and daughter, Luna Simone, 6½ early on about the pregnancy, Chrissy told People magazine.

“Since we did IVF, we knew probably nine days after we did the transfer that it had worked and we were pregnant,” she said. “I told them very, very early.”

“They knew that I was going in for the transfer, that we were going to go in and put this egg inside Mommy’s belly. So they knew from the very, very beginning, and they knew there was a chance it might not work because that’s happened before,” Teigen told People. She announced her pregnancy in August.

“They’ve been excited for a long time,” Chrissy added. “I feel like this is going to be the longest pregnancy to them because they’ve known since the day. But they’ve been really very excited.”

John is taking a break from The Voice, but plans to return

John is taking a break from coaching The Voice this spring in order to concentrate on his music, and his expanding family.

He told Entertainment Tonight last year, “We took a break last season because we had another show in our slot that the network tried — and I thought that was gonna happen this season, but it ended up that they wanted us back.” 

“My family’s growing, I have a new album out, I’m gonna do a little bit of touring, and so it’s probably better that I take a break,” John explained.

“I’ll be back on The Voice,” John told ET, “just not this coming season.”
