A Dream of Four Children of Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
Chrissy expressed her lifelong desire to have four children in her Instagram caption.

However, she acknowledged the incredible support she received from loved ones who wanted to ensure she didn’t go through that pain and loss again. Their care and concern provided her with the strength to consider alternative paths to expand their family.
In 2021, Chrissy and John made the decision to explore surrogacy as a way to fulfill their dream of having more children. They reached out to a surrogacy agency, initially considering the possibility of having two tandem surrogates to bring two healthy babies into their lives. It was a unique concept, akin to having twins but with separate surrogates. However, Chrissy had a moment of revelation after a therapy session and shared with John her desire to try carrying a baby one more time.
The Journey Continues
Despite the challenges they had faced, Chrissy’s unwavering determination led them to restart the IVF process. This was the same process that had blessed them with their beautiful children, Luna and Miles. New embryos were created, and the transfer was successful. Chrissy and John were overjoyed to discover that they were expecting another child, their little girl, Esti. This incredible journey brought them hope and happiness.

On June 19, their surrogate, Alexandra, brought their baby boy, Wren Alexander Stephens, into the world. Chrissy expressed deep gratitude to their surrogate for making their dreams come true. She also took a moment to acknowledge and honor their son Jack, sending a message of love to him. In her heartfelt Instagram post, she wrote, “Our hearts, and our home are officially full. And to our Jack, we know both their angel kisses are from you.”
