Model Chrissy Teigen and singer John Legend have announced that they have welcomed their fourth child, a son, via surrogate.

“All our wishes and dreams aligned,” Teigen said about meeting Alexandra. “I wanted to be her friend, I wanted our children to play, I wanted dinner together, I wanted to lay my head on her belly and be able to feel the hiccups and kicks. I wanted them to be in our lives.”

In a lengthy note shared in a photo carousel, Teigen wrote that she and her husband met with a surrogate named Alexandra and they connected. She shared that the first embryo that they transferred did not survive. She wrote that Alexandra underwent surgeries to improve the potential for pregnancy.

"And we are so happy to tell the world he is here, with a name forever connected to you, Wren Alexander Stephens."

"Our hearts, and our home, are officially full. And to our Jack, we know both their angel kisses are from you."
