Chrissy Teigen gave birth to her and husband John Legend’s first child on Thursday, April 14. A few days later, the proud mama is giving her Instagram followers a first look at her baby girl, Luna Simone Stephens.

“Hi my lulu,” Teigen, 30, captioned the photo on Tuesday evening. She took the photo from her sunny back patio. Her French bulldog Pippa was sitting on the cushion next to them.

Here’s more about the birth of Teigen and Legend’s new baby.


Luna Was Born Weighing a Healthy 6 lbs., 11 oz.

Teigen announced the birth of her and Legend’s daughter on Instagram on April 17. Luna Simone Stephens was born on April 14 and weight 6 lbs., 11 oz. Luna takes her father’s real last name, Stephens (Legend, 37, was born John Roger Stephens).

She also thanked all the well-wishers on her Twitter and joked that Legend was “healing perfectly.” He also announced the birth on his Twitter.

All celebrity parents are different. Some choose to keep the identity of their young children very private. Others can’t share enough photos of their kids. Teigen told People before the birth that she wouldn’t be “sneaky” when it came to taking and sharing photos of her little girl.

We’re not going to go out of our way to hide because obviously it’s such a big part of our lives to show everything: the inside of our homes, my parents living with us, our animals, everything. I’m not going to do sneaky back shots of her or anything.

Teigen also doesn’t want to go overboard with the baby shots. She wants to share with the fans while keeping some semblance of privacy for her and Legend’s family. Her other big worry is the comments that people will post on the photos.

You don’t want to force your kid on anyone either. It’s important for me and John to protect some bits of us, but it’s hard to say. I didn’t think I would be the person sharing bump photos, so who knows. I could be totally wrong here.

I’m not ready for people’s comments. That’s more of what it is. It’s not like I don’t want to show her or that I’m hiding.


Teigen and Legend Will Use In Vitro Fertilization Again If They Have Another Baby

Teigen and Legend struggled to get pregnant and ultimately went with in vitro fertilization to get pregnant with their first child. If they choose to expand their family, and Teigen does want to have more kids, then she will have to undergo more rounds of IVF. She told People in February:

The number of embryos we have left is not matching the number of people I want at my dinner table, so I’ll have to do it again. I wish I had frozen my eggs earlier. We have a few more on ice. Who knows what will work?


Teigen Caught Flack for ‘Choosing’ the Sex of Her Baby

Teigen and Legend chose to impregnate a female embryo. She revealed the choice in a People interview and soon after, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model faced a fury of angry tweeters. Some admonished her for picking a “specific gender” and others thought her money was better spent adopting children.
