Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s miraculous journey of surrogacy, filled with love and joy.
They happily announced the arrival of their fourth child, a son named Wren Alexander Stephens, who was born via surrogacy on June 19th.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Teigen expressed her joy and gratitude for their growing family.
She reminisced about her childhood dreams of having four children, always nurturing her glow worms and cabbage patch dolls while playing pretend in her kitchen. The couple already has an older daughter, Luna, and son, Miles.
The journey to expand their family was not without its challenges. Teigen shared the heartbreaking loss of their son, Jack, at 20 weeks of pregnancy in 2020.
Afterward, she doubted her ability to carry any more babies. However, surrounded by a supportive network, Teigen and Legend decided to explore surrogacy as an option.
In 2021, they connected with an amazing surrogate named Alexandra.
They had initially considered having two surrogates simultaneously, hoping for twins, but later Teigen had a change of heart and decided to try carrying a child herself one more time.
This led to the birth of their daughter, Esti Maxine Stephens, earlier this year.
Throughout the process, Alexandra remained an integral part of their journey, supporting them every step of the way.
The first embryo transfer was unsuccessful, but Alexandra’s determination led to a successful second transfer, resulting in the pregnancy of their little boy, Wren.
On the memorable night of June 19th, just minutes before midnight, Teigen witnessed the extraordinary strength, joy, and love as their surrogate brought Wren into the world.
She expressed her deep gratitude to Alexandra for this incredible gift and connected Wren’s name to her forever.
Teigen shared adorable photos of baby Wren, emphasizing the fullness of their hearts and home.
She also acknowledged the presence of their beloved son, Jack, whose angel kisses bless their new baby.
Teigen and Legend’s journey to expand their family has been filled with ups and downs, but their resilience, love, and the help of an amazing surrogate have brought them the happiness of having four beautiful children.
