Chrissy Teigen has announced that she and her husband, John Legend, have had another boy.
The 37-year-old shared the happy news in a sweet Instagram post on Wednesday, in which she said she had “always wanted four children.”
Her post began, “Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted four kids. As a little girl, I always had two glow worms and two cabbage patch dolls in my hands. They helped me stir in my make-believe kitchen.”
The model and TV star then talked about the son that she and her husband had lost in September 2020. “After I lost Jack, I didn’t think I’d be able to carry any more babies on my own,” she wrote. “To be honest, I’ve blocked out a lot of what I was thinking during that time, but I do remember being surrounded by people who wanted to make sure I wouldn’t have to go through that pain and loss again.”
Teigen then said that after talking with a surrogacy service, they found a woman named Alexandra who was the “perfect match” and became pregnant with the stars’ child. “We were so happy to hear that Alexandra was going to have a boy. She went on, “Our little boy.”
She also said, “On June 19, a few minutes before midnight, I got to see my friend and our surrogate give birth in a bit of chaos, but with strength, pure joy, and love.”
“Both our hearts and our house are full. And to our Jack, we know that both of their angel kisses are from you,” Teigen said at the end of the post.
According to the Daily Mail, Teigen told her Instagram fans in February 2022 that she was going through IVF to try to get pregnant again. Later, in August of that year, she told John that she was pregnant. This was almost two years after she and John lost their son Jack when she was 20 weeks pregnant.
Since then, Teigen has also said that Jack’s sad death was caused by a life-saving abortion, not a miscarriage as she first said.
Then, in January 2023, a girl was born to the couple. They named her Esti Maxine.
“What a blessed day,” wrote 44-year-old Legend, adding that he “didn’t get a lot of sleep” but felt “energized” after being with his wife when she gave birth to their daughter.
The couple has a newborn son named Esti Maxine and a baby boy named Jack. They also have a seven-“year-old daughter named Luna and a five-year-old son named Miles”.
Good luck to the whole family!
