See the post down later in this article! (Wren is in the fourth slide.) 

Wren also showed his fondness for music during Christmas 2023, when Legend shared an adorable moment of the baby sitting on his lap and pressing some piano keys. 

Wren was named the Cutest Baby of 2023 by Peopleand rightfully so. In another interview with People in November 2023, Legend talked about why everyone goes so gaga for their baby boy. 

"He smiles so much. That's our favorite thing about him. He's such a smiley boy. He just lights up the room, looks like a little Cabbage Patch doll," he said.

The sweet meaning behind Wren's name

Baby Wren was born via surrogate in June 2023. Teigen took to her official Instagram page to announce the news, explaining the story behind the newborn's full name, Wren Alexander Stephens. It turns out his middle name is attributed to the family's surrogate, Alexandra. 

"The first embryo we tried with [Alexandra]  didn't survive, and I will never forget how hard she fought to get ready for a second transfer. How much she gave up of her own body — surgeries to get scar tissue cleared, the mental toll it takes to go through all of that for yourself, much less for other people. Not wanting to rush the process, we took a breath and...we were just patient. I laid around, enjoying the first trimester of my pregnancy, with of course a little bit of fear that isn't any different from any other expecting couple. As we crept toward the safe zone of my own pregnancy, we were overjoyed to learn Alexandra had become pregnant with a little boy. Our little boy," Teigen wrote on IG
