Surrogacy Journey Inspires Strength: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Welcome Baby Boy Amidst Fertility Challenges

Nick Loris


After the arrival of her fourth child with singer John Legend, model Chrissy Teigen expressed, "Our hearts and our home are full." The couple's son, Wren Alexander Stephens, was brought into the world through a surrogate. The couple extended their gratitude via Instagram to her for the "incredible gift" she provided.. The couple's choice to embrace surrogacy shines a light on Teigen's personal struggles with conception. The  hilarious mom of four and dance-move aficionado dad, have candidly shared their fertility hurdles, becoming relatable role models for many hopeful parents.

In an article featured in Glamour Magazine, the account of Teigen's announcement about Wren's arrival takes center stage. Through a 10-slide Instagram carousel, Teigen detailed the reasoning behind her and Legend's choice to opt for a surrogate after her pregnancy loss in 2020.

Teigen candidly shared, "Following the loss of Jack, I had reservations about my ability to carry more pregnancies myself." Reflecting on that time, she admitted to blocking out much of her mental state, except for the memory of being surrounded by supportive individuals determined to shield her from further pain and sorrow.

Teigen and John embarked on their journey with surrogacy in 2021, as she revealed. Their initial consideration involved the intriguing concept of utilizing two "tandem surrogates" to carry babies simultaneously—an idea that Teigen humorously pondered with the phrase "Twins, kinda?!"

Teigen continues to account on her surrogacy journey, recounting a pivotal moment when, following a therapy session, she approached John with a moment of clarity: "I remember coming down after a therapy session and telling John—I want to give it one more try to carry a baby myself," she revealed. She was clear: "If it doesn't succeed, we'll handle it."

Chrissy was magically able to conceive Esti Legend, their newest daughter, only to find out the couple's surrogate, Alexandra, experienced the loss of her initial embryo. However, after a second attempt that proved successful, the couple's fifth child—a baby boy, stuck. 

Glamour reports, in a heartfelt passage, Teigen painted a picture of their celebratory moments. "We marked the occasion with a meal of hot pot, watching Vanderpump Rules, our bellies burgeoning as our families merged over the past year," she penned. Alexandra, their surrogate, acknowledged as both a friend and "the most beautiful woman," left an indelible impression. This was further solidified as Teigen and John chose to name their new baby after her. Thus, Wren Alexander Stephens came into being.

Teigen concluded her narrative with a touching tribute, addressing their late son Jack: "And to Jack, we both know their angel kisses are from you.".

As news of the baby's arrival spread, a chorus of well-wishes and congratulations echoed from fans and fellow celebrities. This collective celebration reinforces the idea that surrogacy, a global phenomenon, is a joyful and inclusive route to parenthood. By sharing their story, Teigen and Legend champion unity among intended parents worldwide, eliminating isolation and encouraging open conversations about unique paths to parenthood.
