How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

On June 8, Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen, posted a series of sweet photos on her official Instagram page of herself, Legend, and their adorable 6-month-old Esti. In the snapshots, they cradle the little one in their arms while all three (yes, even Esti) showed off huge grins to the camera. The resemblance between Esti and her parents is undeniable. 

"our 🐞," Teigen cutely captioned the post, revealing "ladybug" as a cute nickname for the newborn.

Teigen and Legend welcomed Esti into the world in January 2023. To celebrate the wonderful news, the couple both took to their official Instagram page to share the same heartwarming photo. 

“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 captioned his post. 

“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 gushed in her caption.

Esti's life has surely been eventful in her earliest months. This Easter, the Teigen-Legend family took a vacation to Italy with their older children Miles and Luna. Teigen shared some gorgeous photos of the family posing outside on a bright, sunny day as Legend held Esti close. 

"Venezia! John and I first came here in 2007 when we were just a couple of crazy child-free kids!," Teigen wrote, explaining the sentimental origins behind the location. "It’s was the dead of winter, absolutely freezing cold and john fondly remembers my single faux urban outfitters fur hat that adorned me every day and night. we took the water bus everywhere and ran through the alleys, making out like a couple of doofuses in lurve who never would have thought we’d be back with babies of our own! well john probably knew."

"Happy Easter from me and my babies!" Legend captioned.
