And in a recent interview with People, Teigen gave more details about the family's relationship with Alexandra. 

"We talk all the time, constantly on a nice little text exchange. She sees all my Instagram Stories and I try to send her little pictures behind the scenes. I told her at the beginning of this journey, I wanted someone who would be there for birthday parties and throughout life," she told the outlet.

"I wanted to meet her children and I wanted my children to be friends with her children. And they really genuinely are which has been a really beautiful thing to see," she added. 

She continued: "I think the way I operate with anybody in our house, whether it's nannies or my mother living with us, or my friends that are in the house or security or whatever, I want an atmosphere where everybody feels really comfortable in our home and that extended to her," she notes. "It felt like she could come over anytime, and I feel like we do still have that relationship. It's been really wonderful."

This February, Legend appeared on The Jennifer Hudson Show to discuss the struggles he and Teigen faced to conceive, in hopes that it would raise awareness for others facing similar issues.

"A lot of people go through this, and they go through it in silence or they go through it feeling like they're the only ones going through it," Legend said. "And I think Chrissy and I talking about it has made people feel better about that journey."
