Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are officially the coolest new parents in Hollywood! The 30-year-old model gave birth to a baby girl named Luna Simone Stephens on Thursday.
“She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy,” Teigen captioned a photo of the baby’s weight on Sunday.
Legend also shared his excitement tweeting, “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!”
The couple chose to announce the pregnancy with a sweet message on Instagram that touched on their fertility struggles, telling fans, “It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family.”
John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant 🙂 As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx
Two months later, the couple again chose Instagram to break the news they were expecting a girl, and when a fan asked if there were any names they were considering, Teigen responded the way you would expect her to:
Teigen’s desire to be a mother was no secret and she revealed she hoped for a “Angelina-Brad-type brood” when she stopped by HuffPost Live in 2014. Likewise, Teigen told DuJour magazine this past May, “We want a lot of kids. I would love to have three or four of my own, and then adopt a few. So basically I’ll be pregnant the rest of my life.”
