Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Give Their Baby a Heavenly Name

John Legend Chrissy TeigenWe already knew this baby would be gorgeous, but now we can confirm she has a beautiful name as well. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their new daughter, Luna Simone, on Thursday and shared her birth details, including her heavenly name, over the weekend. 


While Luna Legend has a lovely alliterative ring to it, it turns out this little one will boast her dad's real last name, Stephens.

In Latin, Luna means "moon," and we can only imagine that the couple, who struggled for years with fertility issues, are "over the moon" with their new arrival!

The supermodel revealed that she and Legend pursued IVF to conceive, and even selected their child's gender, leading us to wonder if they've had this name picked out for ages.

It's a delightfully different name that could easily be shortened to "Lu," which is adorable for a little girl.

Harry Potter fans will no doubt recognize the name from the character Luna Lovegood, who got saddled with the not-so-attractive nickname "Loony." Avid readers may recall that Luna is also Harry's daughter Lily's middle name.

We're thrilled for this couple and can only imagine this will inspire plenty of other parents to put "Luna" on their baby-name short list. Now, if only they'd share some photos!
