Surprise Baby News! Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Welcomed Baby No. 4 Via Surrogate

Congratulations to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend on baby number four! The Cravings author secretly welcomed a little boy via surrogate this month, which she announced in a surprise post today.

“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 wrote on Instagram today. “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.”

How sweet is that? Teigen also shared more details about her journey with IVF and surrogacy — and her lifelong longing for four children.

“For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted four children,” she wrote. “As a little girl, 2 glow worms and 2 cabbage patch dolls were perpetually in my arms, helping me stir in my pretend 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, who shares daughters Luna, 7, and Esti, 5 months, and son Miles, 5, with husband John Legend, lost a baby boy named Jack in Oct. 2020, which inspired her to go through fertility.

“After losing Jack, I didn’t think I’d be able to carry any more babies on my own,” she wrote, adding that she “personally blocked out” a lot of memories 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.”
