The little one’s full name is Esti Maxine Stephens, as Legend’s real name is actually John Stephens.
“It turns out, my great-grandmother was named Esther,” the entertainer told E! News in an interview published Wednesday. “It wasn’t intentionally after someone, but once Chrissy told me that idea, I was like, ‘Oh, my great-grandmother’s name was Esther.’”
“We wanted to already name her middle name Maxine after my grandmother, whose middle name was Maxine,” he added. “So, it’s a lot of my family in the name.”
Legend and Teigen shared the first photo of Esti in joint Instagram posts on Jan. 19, nearly a week after she was born.
“The house is bustling and our family could not be happier,” Teigen wrote, alongside a photo of her 6-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son looking at their new sibling.
“Daddy sheds nightly tears of joy seeing Luna and Miles so full of love, and I am learning you still need diapers with a c section!?” the cookbook author added, with her usual candor. “We are in bliss. Thank you for all the love and well wishes ― we feel it all!”
Legend and Teigen’s third child arrived a little over two years after the couple experienced pregnancy loss in September 2020, with an expected child they’d already named Jack.
