Attendees of the special event immediately took to social media to share the big baby news.

@John legend just told us he had a baby this morning,” one viewer wrote.

The birth of their baby comes after the couple experienced a heartbreaking pregnancy loss in October 2020. The couple are already parents to son Miles Theodore, 4½, and daughter Luna Simone, 6 and half.

Speaking to PEOPLE in March, the multi-hyphenate opened up about preparing her family for their new addition.

“We’re all excited,” Legend said, “and, you know, my kids are old enough to be really aware of what’s going on, so they’re really looking forward to having a new sibling in their lives. And I think they are going to be good at being a big sister and a big brother.”

In September, Teigen, 37, told PEOPLE that Luna and Miles were “very excited” about their family’s new addition and learned of her pregnancy early on.

“Since we did IVF, we probably knew nine days after the transfer that it had worked and that we were pregnant,” she said. “I told them very, very early.”

“They knew I was going for the transfer, that we were going to come in and put this egg in mum’s belly. So they knew from the very beginning, and they knew there was a chance that it wouldn’t work out because it happened before,” said Teigen, who announced her pregnancy in August.
