There she is!
Chrissy Teigen unveiled the precious face of her and John Legend’s newborn daughter, Esti Maxine, on Tuesday, nearly two weeks after she gave birth.
“look at you [sic] look out here [sic] like a baby,” the 37-year-old model captioned an Instagram photo that showed a sleeping Esti up close.
Teigen’s close friends and family gushed about the newborn in the comments section of her post.
“My little Esti 😢❤️,” the proud dad, Legend, commented.
“Oh em jeez what a beauty!!!!!!” wrote Kaley Cuoco, who is also expecting her first child.
“Soooo beautiful, just like her mama 💕💗💕💗,” Kris Jenner also gushed.
“Welcome earthy little 🏻,” continued fellow mom Olivia Munn.
Just two weeks ago, the 44-year-old Legend 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 felt “energized” despite not getting “a lot of sleep.”
Since giving birth to Esti, Teigen has been candid about the ups and downs of postpartum life, including her C-section recovery and lactation marks.
“omw to bandage both my wound and 3.8 second clips of Beyonce’s performance in Dubai until I get a full HBO special,” she captioned a photo of herself on Instagram showing 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 partial placental 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 full of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,” she wrote on Instagram in September 2020, sharing a black and white photo of herself crying in a hospital bed.
She then revealed that she and Legend decided to name the “little guy” Jack.
“So he’ll always be Jack to us. Jack has worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will forever be,” she added. “To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were so complicated that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you.”
Teigen and Legend married in 2013 and are also parents to daughter Luna, 6, and son Miles, 4.
