Chrissy Teigen revealed the precious face of her and John Legend’s newborn daughter Esti Maxine on Tuesday, nearly two weeks after giving birth.
“look at you [sic] here looking [sic] like a baby,” the model, 37, captioned an Instagram photo that featured a sleeping Esti up close.
Teigen’s close friends and family gushed about the newborn baby in the comments section of her post.
“My little Esti 😢❤️,” proud dad Legend commented.
“Oh em gee what a beauty!!!!!!” wrote Kaley Cuoco, who is also expecting her first child.
“So beautiful like her mom 💕💗💕💗,” Kris Jenner also gushed.
“Welcome Earthside little one 🏻,” fellow mom Olivia Munn continued.
Just two weeks ago, Legend, 44, announced the birth of his rainbow baby with Teigen during 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” even though he didn’t get “much” sleep.
Since Esti was born, Teigen has been candid about the ups and downs of postpartum life, including her c-section recovery and lactation spots.
“Omw for licking both my wound and 3.8 second clips of Beyonce performing in Dubai until I get a full hbo special,” she captioned a photo of her 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 miscarriage due to a partial abruption of the placenta.
“We are in shock and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we have never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and get our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,” she wrote on Instagram in September 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 for us. Jack has worked so hard to be part of our little family, and he always will be,” she added. “To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were so difficult, 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.
