Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have welcomed a son via surrogate, just five months after Teigen gave birth to their daughter Esti.
The surprise announcement came in a moving post on Teigen’s verified Instagram page on Wednesday, in which she wrote, “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 shared photos of their newborn son in her post and recounted the story of his birth, also referencing her family’s joy over the birth of Esti while continuing to heal from experiencing pregnancy loss in 2020.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted four children,” Teigen’s post began.
She continued to share that “after losing Jack, I didn’t think I’d be able to carry any more babies on my own,” going on to say that “during that time, … one clear memory is being surrounded by people who wanted to make sure I wouldn’t go through that pain and loss again.”
