Congrats are in order!
Singer John Legend and his wife, model Chrissy Teigen, recently welcomed their first child, a daughter named Luna Simone Stephens. Baby Luna was born on Thursday April 14th. The couple shared the announcement via social media on Sunday, introducing their daughter to the public for the very first time.
John Legend tweeted, “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephen, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!”

While Teigen posted the baby’s weight on Instagram.
When the couple first announced that they were pregnant, Legend told USA Today that he and Teigen wanted to share the baby news before any press did – hence the baby birthday tweet. “We like to control our media,” he said, “because we feel it gives us the opportunity to really say it how we want to say it in the tone we want to say it.”
Teigen, who seems to be in high spirits, humorously tweeted:
