Singer John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen revealed Wednesday that they welcomed a son via surrogate, just five months after Teigen gave birth to their daughter Esti.
Wren Alexander Stephens was welcomed into the world on Monday, June 19.
“Just minutes before midnight on June 19th, I got to witness the most beautiful woman, my friend, our surrogate, give birth amidst a bit of chaos, but with strength and pure joy and love,” Teigen said in the surprise announcement on Instagram Wednesday.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted four children,” she began her statement announcing Wren’s arrival.
“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 note 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,” she continued before detailing suffering her pregnancy loss in 2020.
“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.”
“Our hearts, and our home, are officially full. And to our Jack, we know both their angel kisses are from you,” she ended.
Baby Wren’s arrival comes just five months after the family welcomed baby Esti. The couple is also parents to Luna, 7, and Miles, 5,
