On Jan. 19, Teigen shared the name, sex, and first photo of their new addition, revealing that she gave birth to a baby girl named Esti Maxine Stephens. As for their sex life nowadays, Teigen revealed on the late-night talk show that things are considerably less exciting. “12 years ago today, I met the man LoveAndSeek alternatives of my dreams. And 5 years ago today, we got married. We have two babies and some pups and a life I am grateful to have. My everything, I love you and am so proud of the story we’ve created,” Teigen captioned the photo. “John would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row,” she wrote.
Supporting His Wife
She further explained that she was diagnosed with a partial placenta abruption. Why get married in the US when you can get married in Italy, right? John Legend and Chrissy Teigen agree, but they also have a sentimental reason for choosing the destination — they fell in love during a trip to Lake Como. “The very first time John and I went [to Lake Como], we were in our first year of dating and it was so magical,” Teigen reminisced for an interview with Chase Sapphire’s Talking Travel series (via People). “We say we fell in love there because it was such a beautiful place and the timing was perfect for us to take our relationship to the next level.” In August 2020, at the end of his “Wild” music video, the couple announced that they were expecting baby number three.
For context, Chrissy and John first met in 2006 — when he was 28 — on the set of the music video for his song “Stereo.”
His song All of Me was written about Chrissy and the video was shot just days before they married in Lake Como, Italy in September 2013. It was directed by Nabil Elderkin who first introduced the couple. Regardless, both Teigen and Legend, who had been trying to start a family for a while, were ecstatic to expand their family. The couple, whose social media game is already strong thanks to Teigen, kept fans posted on their (second) journey to parenthood via Twitter and Instagram, though Teigen stated the second go-around was harder.
After roughly five years of dating, Legend and Teigen got engaged and eventually married in September 2013. Legend revealed in the interview it took a lot of internal work in order to become the spouse he is today. Chrissy and John take their first holiday, to Lake Como on Italy – something which Chrissy later shared on Instagram. “A boat tour guide took us to a little spot on the lake and told us to make a wish,” she wrote in 2016. “I asked for this to be the man I marry and have children with. I think John asked for the most perfect bite of cacio e pepe. Both came true, and here we are.”
She later added, “I did cry when I heard it. I’m emotional, but like I don’t really don’t cry at things like that so yeah, it was beautiful. And live it’s pretty unreal.” The pair broke up briefly in 2007, but their time apart only lasted a few hours (John claims it was even less than that!). “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now,'” Chrissy recalled to Cosmopolitan in 2016. “It was the stress of him having to maybe cancel a show, and he had never been in a real relationship—or so he says now.” Even with their happy news, Chrissy has been open about the difficulty of her fertility struggles.
Dax remarked that some songs on his discography are “good cheating songs.” John Legend admitted that he does have some real-life experiences of cheating. Revealing that because he was two years younger than everyone else in his high school class, he had had trouble meeting girls and having relationships. After their first night together, the pair were separated as John headed out to tour. Not in a committed relationship, though keeping in touch via texting, Chrissy remembers seeing photos of him on red carpets with different women on his arm.
In December of 2011, the couple got engaged during a romantic Christmas trip to the Maldives, but Legend thought he might have to propose before they even got to airport security so she wouldn’t see the ring box. When asked by Dax if he ever feels pressured about his relationship, considering he and the Cravings author are one of the most celebrated couples, the 41-year-old put things simply. For the “All of Me” singer, there were instant sparks when he first met Chrissy. In fact, they had so much chemistry that they hooked up the first night.

It somehow implies that those women were just not special enough to drive the man towards change, that they somehow deserve the unfaithfulness, and just had to take it for no reason at all. What’s remarkable about John’s admission is that he doesn’t necessarily attribute Chrissy for why he changed his ways. A lot of men, as well as women, hold this fantasy that all it takes is for a woman to come into a man’s life for him to realize the errors. The couple is very much still together as they are currently expecting another child together. On August 3, Chrissy announced via Instagram that she was pregnant with a rainbow baby. Two years later, a month after dedicating his smash hit “All of Me” to his then-future bride, the couple celebrated their wedding in Lake Como, Italy, on September 14, 2013, after legally getting married in a New York City courthouse.
But we’ve also managed to figure out exactly when, throughout the year, babies are being born – and subsequently when they’re conceived. And you guys, the phrase, ‘Your parents started the new year off with a bang’, makes complete sense now. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

When people are in holiday mode, they’re joyous, going out more and having fun, which just generally puts them in a good mood. This also adds to the appeal of summer time in South Africa, when everyone’s dressed up, or down, and enjoying the beaches and soaking up the sun.
He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now,’” Chrissy recalled to Cosmopolitan in 2016. In October 2015, the couple announced they were expecting their first child and in April 2016, their daughter, who they called Luna, was born. Chrissy met singer-songwriter John Legend on the set of the video for his song Stereo in 2007 and in 2011 he proposed. On April 14, 2016, Teigen and Legend welcomed their first child, Luna Simone Stephens. Prior to that, Teigen was very open about her difficulties conceiving a child. “I will say, honestly, John and I were having trouble…We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened.
The couple has 2 other children, Miles Theodore, 4, and Luna Simone, 6. You may recall, though, Chrissy sadly lost newborn Jack in September 2020. We got married in Italy and I was looking up at the hotel and I kept seeing the Este of it, and then I was like, “I love the name Este,'” she shared.
