On January 14, The Voice Coach took to his official Instagram page to share the most heartwarming snapshots of his adorable daughter, Esti, on her 1st birthday. In the post, we get to see the baby cutely wearing some heart-shaped sunglasses, giving herself a big kiss in a mirror, standing up all by herself, smiling while her dad holds her, and sitting in front of a fun birthday cake. 

"Esti Maxine is ONE today! She’s been lighting up the house since day one. ❤️❤️❤️❤️," Legend gushed in the caption.

All about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's baby, Esti

John Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen, gave birth to baby Esti in January 2023. To announce the wonderful news, the couple both took to their official Instagram pages to share a sweet moment of two of their other children, Luna and Miles, cradling the newborn and looking at her lovingly. 

“On Friday, we welcomed Esti Maxine Stephens to our family, and our house is overflowing with love and joy. I’m in awe of Chrissy’s strength and resilience and I’m so thrilled to see how Luna and Miles embrace their baby sister. I’m so, so grateful, but that doesn’t seem like a big enough word…,” Legend wrote in his caption. 

“She’s here! Esti Maxine Stephens - the house is bustling and our family could not be happier 💕 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!? We are in bliss. Thank you for all the love and well wishes - we feel it all! X,” Teigen wrote on her post.

Since then, Esti has had quite an adventurous life with two loving parents. Legend and Teigen have shared footage of the baby saying "dada" for the first time, growing her first baby teeth, standing up all by herself, making a mess while eating some pasta, and more sweet moments. 

On November 2023, Legend showed off his signature musical skills on IG, playing the piano while singing a soothing nursery rhyme to Esti. He sang "Purple Monkey in a Bubblegum Tree," which is a tune featured on the kid's toy Fisher Price Kick n Play Piano Play Mat, while Teigen held Esti and swayed side to side. 

"Just me over here covering Esti’s play mat bops," Legend wrote on the post.
