Sweet Beginnings

“We were on vacation where we got married in Italy and I was looking up at the hotel and I kept seeing the Este of it, and then I was like I love the name Este,” she shared.

“I was just playing around with it and then we came up with Esti. John, after we named her Esti, learned that it was actually his great-grandmother’s name. I guess maybe it was Esther and then they turned it to Esti,” she continued.

Teigen calls her daughter “such a light and a joy” and shared a few details about what it’s like to have a newborn in the house with her other young children.

“It’s weird because I thought they would either be very mad at her for just existing or they would want so much attention from me,” she said . “But they actually love her so much and they want so much attention from me. So, it’s both. It has a lot to do with her, obviously, but they still shower her with love, every bath in the sink, they crowd around.”

All The Love

Miles, her middle child, is “in this crazy kissing phase where he’s kind of practicing a little bit on everything,” she revealed. “Miles it’s like six in the morning, I feel the kisses and he thinks I’m asleep and it’s so cute. He’ll do my top lip and bottom lip and then with Esti he’s like, ‘Ahh!’ all in. He loves it, he’s so affectionate.”

Chrissy’s husband, award-winning singer/songwriter John Legend revealed in an interview with E! News that their young daughter’s middle name also has a family connection.

“We wanted to already name her middle name Maxine after my grandmother, whose middle name was Maxine. So, it’s a lot of my family in the name,” he said.
