The couple shared a photo of their two eldest children, Luna, 6, and Miles, 4, showing admiration for their new baby sister.
“She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens – the house is bustling, and our family could not be happier,” Teigen captioned her affectionate IG post. “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.”
Teigen announced they were expecting another child in August 2022, just two years after suffering a miscarriage. The model wrote about the life-changing loss in an essay published in 2020 on Medium, detailing the traumatic event.
“My bleeding was getting heavier and heavier,” she recalled. “The fluid around Jack had become very low — he was barely able to float around. At some points, I swore it was so low I could lay on my back and feel his arms and legs from outside my belly.
“After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming — it was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either. We had tried bags and bags of blood transfusions, every single one going right through me like we hadn’t done anything at all. Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go in the morning.
“I cried a little at first, then went into full blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness.”
John Legend, 43, stated that they greeted their “little baby this morning” and revealed while he “didn’t get a lot of sleep,” it was a “blessed day.”
