Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Welcome A Baby To Their Family

On Friday, January 13th, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed a new addition to their family, a baby boy. The news was announced by the 12-time Grammy award-winning singer during a private concert, where he shared that he was "full of energy" despite a lack of sleep.

Adding to their family

In March, Legend spoke with PEOPLE about his family's anticipation for the new arrival.

He said, "We're all excited... my kids are old enough to really be aware of what's happening, so they're really anticipating having a new sibling in their lives. And I think they'll be good at being a big sister and big brother." Teigen announced her pregnancy on social media in August, and in September, she shared with PEOPLE that her two older children, Luna and Miles, were "very excited" about the new addition to their family.

The couple had used in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive, and knew they were pregnant only nine days after the procedure. "Since we did IVF, we knew probably nine days after we did the transfer that it had worked and we were pregnant," she said.

"I told them very, very early." "They knew that I was going in for the transfer, that we were going to go in and put this egg inside Mommy's belly. So they knew from the very, very beginning, and they knew there was a chance it might not work because that's happened before," explained Teigen

Overcoming Loss

The announcement of Teigen's pregnancy comes after the couple's heartbreaking loss of a child in 2018, due to a miscarriage caused by the separation of the placenta.

They shared their pain publicly to show others who have gone through similar tragedies that it is possible to persevere and find hope. Teigen said, "They've been excited for a long time... I feel like this is going to be the longest pregnancy to them because they've known since the day." As the couple welcomes their new son, they undoubtedly look forward to the joy and love he will bring to their family.
