Chrissy Teigen Baby Born! Model And John Legend Welcome Daughter Luna Simone Stephens
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are parents! The model and singer welcomed a baby girl named Luna Simone Stephens, they announced on Sunday. The baby, who was born on Thursday, is couple’s first child.
Alongside a photo on Instagram of the baby’s weight of 6 pounds and 11 ounces, Teigen wrote, “She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy.” And Legend tweeted, “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!”
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Teigen revealed in February that she and Legend would be having a girl and that she personally chose the gender by picking a female embryo. The model told People, “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.'”
Teigen noted that she made the decision to choose her child’s gender because she believed “John would be the best father to a little girl.” She added, “That excited me… Just the thought of seeing him with a little girl… I think he deserves that bond.”
The couple announced they were expecting in October on Instagram. “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,” the model wrote at the time. Teigen and Legend became engaged in 2011 after four years together. They married in 2013.
Gossip Cop would like to congratulate Teigen and Legend on the birth of their daughter Luna Simone. We look forward to mostly likely seeing a slew of adorable photos of their new daughter on social media and possibility of a future song or two about Legend’s new life as a first-time dad.
