Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have welcomed baby No. 4 via surrogate. Teigen and Legend welcomed their third child, a daughter named Esti, in January. The couple also share daughter Luna, 7, and son Miles, 5.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Teigen revealed that she and Legend recently welcomed their fourth child together via surrogate on June 19, a baby boy named Wren Alexander Stephens. Teigen shared photos of Wren nuzzling against her chest and a photo with her surrogate, Alexandra, explaining that she has wanted to be a mom of four ever since she was a child: “For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted four children. As a little girl, 2 glow worms and 2 cabbage patch dolls were perpetually in my arms, helping me stir in my kitchen, watching ‘Alf’ with me. We’d sleep together nightly, each getting the same amount of kisses as to not make the others jealous. My mom always searched for the Pound Puppy with 4 pups in her pouch, having no qualms about opening and peeking inside before purchasing.”
Teigen also noted the loss she and Legend suffered in 2020 when they were expecting another son: “After losing Jack, I didn’t think I’d be able to carry any more babies on my own. To be honest, I’ve personally blocked out a lot of my mindset during that time, but one clear memory is being surrounded by people who wanted to make sure I wouldn’t go through that pain and loss again.”
Finally, Teigen went on to thank the couple’s surrogate, Alexandra: “We want to say thank you for this incredible gift you have given us, Alexandra. And we are so happy to tell the world he is here, with a name forever connected to you, Wren Alexander Stephens. Our hearts, and our home, are officially full. And to our Jack, we know both their angel kisses are from you.”
