John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Share First Photo of Newborn Baby

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have celebrated the birth of their third child together by sharing a first photo of baby Esti Maxine Stephens.

In a candid photo shared on Instagram on Thursday (January 19), Teigen and Legend’s two other children, Luna, 6, and Miles, 4, can be seen cradling their newborn baby sister, who arrived last week.

“Last Friday we welcomed Esti Maxine Stephens to our family and our house is filled with love and joy,” Legend wrote in her caption. “I’m in awe of Chrissy’s strength and resilience, and I’m so excited to see Luna and Miles embrace their little sister. I’m so, so grateful, but that doesn’t seem like a big enough word.”

Teigen added in her own Instagram post: “She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens – the house is busy and our family couldn’t be happier. Daddy sheds nightly tears of joy seeing Luna and Miles so full of love and I’m learning you still need diapers with ac section!?

“We are in bliss. Thanks for all the love and well wishes – we feel it all! X.”

Teigen announced that she was pregnant last August, nearly two years after the couple suffered a pregnancy loss. “The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our homes and hearts again,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘ok, if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce,’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief hearing a heartbeat and decide I’m still too nervous,” she added. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves, but so far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and amazing. Okay, it’s been very hard to hold it in for so long!”

She continued, “We’re shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Teigen said in the post at the time of their loss. “We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.”

Legend then announced Esti’s arrival during an intimate live performance on January 13, the same day his wife gave birth.

“What a blessed day,” the “All Of Me” singer reportedly told the crowd.
