There she is!
Chrissy Teigen revealed the precious face of her and John Legend’s newborn daughter, Esti Maxine, on Tuesday — nearly two weeks after she gave birth.
“look at u [sic] out here lookin [sic] like a baby,” the model, 37, captioned an Instagram photo that featured an up-close look of a sleeping Esti.
Teigen’s close friends and family gushed over the newborn in the comments section of her post.
“My little Esti 😢❤️,” proud dad, Legend, commented.
“Oh em gee what a beaut!!!!!!,” Kaley Cuoco, who is also expecting her first child, wrote.
“Soooo beautiful just like her mama 💕💗💕💗,” Kris Jenner also gushed.
“Welcome earthside little one 🏻,” fellow mom Olivia Munn followed up.
Just two weeks ago, Legend, 44, announced the birth of his rainbow baby with Teigen while playing a private concert, sharing that he and Teigen welcomed “the little baby this morning.”
According to People, the “All of Me” singer went on to say that he was feeling “energized” despite not getting “a lot of sleep.”
Since Esti’s birth, Teigen has been candid about the ups and downs of postpartum life, including her C-section recovery and lactation stains.
“omw to bandage together both my wound and 3.8 second clips of Beyonce performing in Dubai until I get a full hbo special,” she captioned a picture of herself on Instagram showing off her breast milk stains on her black dress.
Esti’s birth comes more than two years after the cookbook author suffered a pregnancy loss due to a partial placenta abruption.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,” she wrote on Instagram in Sept. 2020, sharing a black-and-white image of herself crying in a hospital bed.
She then revealed that she and Legend decided to name the “little guy,” Jack.
“So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever,” she added. “To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you.”
Teigen and Legend tied the knot in 2013 and are also parents to daughter Luna, 6, and son Miles, 4.
