Baby joy for John Legend and Chrissy Teigen!
The singer made an already special night even more magical, taking the chance to share at a private concert on Friday night (Saturday AEST) that he and his wife had welcomed their fourth child just that morning.
According to audience members, who took to social media to share the couple’s baby news, Legend, 44, excitedly told the crowd that the couple had welcomed “the little baby this morning.”

Though he admittedly didn’t get “a lot of sleep”, he reportedly said he “[felt] energised” nonetheless after spending “a lot of time” at the hospital.
“What a blessed day,” he said to the crowd, with many taking to social media to share the news.
“[Legend] just told us he had a baby this morning,” one concertgoer wrote on Twitter.
“A true professional – yes, his wife had their baby that morning and he still fulfilled this engagement,” wrote another on Instagram.

The Legend-Teigen clan are now a family of five, with the couple already being parents to six-year-old daughter Luna Simone Stephens, and four-year-old son Miles Theodore Stephens.
Legend and Teigen also suffered a traumatic pregnancy loss in October 2020, losing their son, Jack, after Teigen had what she called a “life-saving” pregnancy termination.
Both Legend and Teigen have been vocal about their ordeal in the time since, with Teigen breaking the news on social media and in a personal essay at the time in an effort to highlight to other families that they’re not alone.

Later, Legend reflected on their devastating loss and said it strengthened their family.
“We were tested. It was a tragedy. But I think it strengthened our resolve and our resilience because we were there for each other. We came out even more sure of who we were as a couple and as a family,” he told The Guardian.
“Also, we found out how many other families have gone through this. It was a powerful and brave thing that Chrissy did to share that because it made so many people feel like they were seen and that they weren’t alone.”
