This baby has some pretty good genes! While everyone else is refreshing Instagram for the first pic of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s newborn daughter, Luna, producer Mike Jackson has already gotten a glimpse!
Jackson told Entertainment Tonight all about meeting baby Luna at a panel discussion on Sunday, April 17, for the WGN America TV series Underground, which he executive produces with Legend.
“I’ve held baby Luna in my arms,” Jackson told ET at the Beverly Hills event. “She is absolutely beautiful.”
Jackson said the first-time parents are so excited to finally welcome their bundle of joy, especially after struggling to conceive for several years. "They’re elated,” he said. "It’s a long time coming. They went through a lot to have this child. They’re excited. We’re all really blessed to have her a part of all our lives.” Teigen revealed in February that the couple used in vitro fertilization and even selected the baby’s sex.
And, of course, the world wants to know, which of her beautiful parents does she look most like? “I think she looks like both of them,” Jackson said diplomatically. "She’s gorgeous.”
The supermodel, 30, and the “Glory” crooner, 37, announced the birth of their first child on Sunday, April 17: “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier,” Legend (whose real last name is Stephens) wrote in a tweet.
The Cravings cookbook author also posted about the couple’s happy news. “She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you!” Teigen captioned a photo on Instagram the same day that shows their daughter’s weight as 6 pounds, 11 ounces. “And sleepy. Very sleepy.”
In typical Teigen fashion, she also joked on Twitter, “to everyone asking, john is healing perfectly.”
