Chrissy Teigen Jokes That Husband John Legend Is ‘Healing Perfectly’ After Birth of Their Daughter

LOL! Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter on Sunday, April 17, to notify fans that her husband, John Legend, is “healing perfectly” after the birth of their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens.

“To everyone asking, John is healing perfectly,” the new mom, 30 joked.

“Thank you for all the well wishes!!!” she continued in a follow-up tweet. “We are so happy and excited! I dunno what to tweet now. Does my twitter change? This is so awkward.”

Earlier in the day, the happy couple, who selected their baby girl’s sex through in vitro fertilization, announced that they welcomed their first child on Thursday, April 14. Luna weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces.

“She's here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you!” Teigen captioned a photo on Instagram. “And sleepy. Very sleepy.”

Legend, 37, also celebrated, writing, “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!”

The fun-loving couple announced that they were expecting in October, just one month after the Cravings cookbook author revealed that she was struggling with infertility.

“As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family,” she wrote at the time. “We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching!”
