John Legend and Chrissy Teigen know the PR game well enough not to give EVERTHING away in one social media post. The two are finally celebrating the birth of their baby girl Esti with photos that show off her sweet face.
“Our new love,” John captioned a pic posted on social media Wednesday (Jan 25). In the photo, he smiles for the camera as his baby girl lays in his arms. After only a week-ish, she already has John’s smile.
Chrissy posted a beautiful close-up photo of the baby asleep in her arms, captioning the photo, “look at u out here lookin like a baby” John posted in comments, “My little Esti.”
“She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens”
News first broke about the baby’s arrival when John shared the news at a private concert the day Esti was born, Friday Jan 13. He stated that the couple welcomed “the little baby this morning,” adding, “what a blessed day.” But he didn’t release any other details.
Almost a week later, John and Chrissy released details about the birth, along with a photo of their kids, Luna (6) and Miles (4) holding the baby, whose face was obscured.
“She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens” Chrissy wrote in the Instagram comment alongside the photo. “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 the same photo on his own Instagram writing, “”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…,”
Chrissy underwent IVF treatments in order to get pregnant. The birth of their baby comes after the couple experienced a pregnancy loss in October 2020.
