Chrissy Teigen Shares Cute Video of Baby Esti Making July 4th Cookies

Chrissy Teigen’s family is getting festive!

The Cravings author took to her Instagram Stories on the Fourth of July to share an adorable video of her one-year-old daughter Esti rolling out dough to make cookies. “Good job,” Teigen is heard encouraging her daughter, before husband John Legend sweetly chimes in, “Smart girl!”

Last June, Legend and Teigen announced they welcomed their fourth child, a baby boy named Wren, via surrogate. With the process of IVF — which the couple also employed when becoming pregnant with Miles and his older sister Luna — Teigen became pregnant with baby girl Esti, whom the couple welcomed in January 2023.

Teigen revealed in an Instagram post that around the time she became pregnant, the couple met their surrogate, a woman named Alexandra who has since become a close friend. “Just minutes before midnight on June 19th, I got to witness the most beautiful woman, my friend, our surrogate, give birth amidst a bit of chaos, but with strength and pure joy and love,” Teigen wrote, thanking Alexandra for the “incredible gift.”

Legend told E! News that Esti’s unique moniker was initially the brainchild of wife Chrissy Teigen, but it also has surprising roots in his family tree. “It turns out, my great-grandmother was named Esther,” he said. “It wasn’t intentionally after someone, but once Chrissy told me that idea, I was like, ‘Oh, my great-grandmother’s name was Esther.’”
