On June 28, 2023, “The Voice” coach John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, made a surprise announcement: They have welcomed a fourth child via surrogate. The couple chose to keep the news private until the birth of their baby — a boy they named Wren.

In a candid Instagram post, Teigen shared that she’d always dreamt of having four children. After suffering a pregnancy loss, she and Legend decided to look into having a surrogate carry their next baby.

“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,” Teigen explained.

“In 2021, we reached out to a surrogacy agency with our first correspondence inquiring about perhaps having to tandem surrogates, to each bring us a healthy baby boy or a girl. Twins, kinda?” she added.

As fate would have it, Teigen ended up getting pregnant and her daughter Esti was born in January 2023. What people didn’t know was that Teigen and Legend’s beloved surrogate also got pregnant.

“Our hearts, and our home, are officially full. And to our Jack, we know both their angel kisses are from you,” Teigen wrote.
