Chrissy Teigen shares the first picture of Esti, her and John Legend’s new daughter.
“She is here! Esti Maxine Stephens – the house is busy and our family couldn’t be happier,” Teigen, 37, wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday. “Daddy sheds tears of joy every night when he sees Luna and Miles so lovingly and I’m just learning you still need air conditioned diapers!? We are happy. Thank you for all the love and well wishes – we feel it all!”
In the photo, Esti’s siblings, 6-year-old sister Luna and 4-year-old brother Miles, are holding her and looking down at her affectionately.
Legend, 44, revealed during a Jan. 13 concert that he and Teigen welcomed their latest bundle of joy earlier that day, a rep for the singer confirmed to ABC News.
Teigen announced in an Instagram post in August that she and Legend were expecting another baby after undergoing in vitro fertilization.
“The last few years have been a mix of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our homes and hearts again,” Teigen wrote at the time, alongside a photo of herself showing off her baby bump. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately as you can see!) we have another one on the way.”
“It was very hard to keep that down for so long!” She added.

In 2020, the cookbook author “Cravings” shared that she had suffered a miscarriage and that they intended to name the baby Jack.
A few days before sharing the news, she told her followers that she had been hospitalized for “excessive bleeding.”
In announcing her pregnancy last year, Teigen expressed her concern at sharing her pregnancy news and the nervousness she would feel after each appointment.
“At every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘Okay, if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce it,’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief when I hear a heartbeat and decide I’m still too nervous,” he said you. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nervousness, but so far everything is perfect and beautiful and amazing.”
Teigen also spoke about battling postpartum depression after the birth of daughter Luna.
The model has said she hopes that by sharing her pregnancy journey, she will inspire others to “be open and honest like they would like to be.”
Teigen and Legend met on the set of the EGOT-winning video for “Stereo” in 2006 and married in 2013, the same year Legend released his hit song “All of Me,” written and dedicated to Teigen.
