In a revelation that has warmed the hearts of their fans, Hollywood's beloved couple, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, shared the heartfelt backstory of their surprise fourth baby's name.

The news broke out on Instagram when Teigen, the 37-year-old model and television personality, shared a series of ten gripping photos that illustrated the journey of her latest pregnancy, rounded off with three family snaps.

In an intimate confession to her 42.2 million Instagram followers, Teigen said, "For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted four children." The post touched on a childhood anecdote and took a candid dive into how Teigen and Legend grappled with the tragic loss of their son due to complications.

Teigen wrote, "After losing Jack, I didn't think I'd be able to carry any more babies on my own." With striking honesty, she added, "To be honest, I've personally blocked out a lot of my mindset during that time, but one clear memory is being surrounded by people who wanted to make sure I wouldn't go through that pain and loss again."

In 2021, the couple reached out to a surrogacy agency, as Teigen informed her fans, adding, "With our first correspondence inquiring about perhaps having two tandem surrogates, to each bring us a healthy baby boy or girl. Twins, kinda?!" However, Teigen later made the decision that she wanted "to try to carry just one more time."

Undeterred by the possibility of failure, Teigen assured her followers, "If it doesn't work, we will be okay. We've already seen the worst." She vowed to remain strong no matter the outcome, reflecting, "I remember saying I just couldn't go on wondering my whole life if I should have tried again."

The celeb couple restarted the IVF process and Teigen was overjoyed to discover they was expecting their little girl, Esti. Around the same time, they found their perfect surrogate, Alexandra. Describing her, Teigen remarked, "I knew she was a perfect match for us the moment we spoke to her. All our wishes and dreams aligned."

Teigen admired Alexandra's courage as she gave birth just minutes before midnight on June 19. She expressed her gratitude for the "incredible gift" of surrogacy, revealing their tribute to her in the newborn's name: "We are so happy to tell the world he is here, with a name forever connected to you, Wren Alexander Stephens."
