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.”
