Why People Are Upset About Chrissy & John's Latest Date Night

Splash News

When I logged onto the internet this morning and saw that Chrissy Teigen was under fire, I couldn’t imagine what for. She just welcomed a beautiful baby girl less than two weeks ago. Surely there were still plenty of warm fuzzies left to go around. But, no, no. Apparently, the swimsuit model and her husband, John Legend, enjoyed date night over the weekend. Yes, that’s what has folks having tittie attacks.

The parenting police took to social media claiming that stepping out less than two weeks after giving birth is “horrific” and unsanitary. They also basically implied that Chrissy is an unfit and unloving mother for doing so, which is mind-blowing. I mean, if a new mom wants to go out with her husband a week and a half after pushing out a whole human and it’s cool with her physicians, why do complete strangers believe that they should have a say in when she is allowed to leave the house? Are new moms not allowed fresh air anymore?

Chrissy appeared unfazed and even slightly amused by the drama, but she chose to shut down her critics and their outlandish comments anyway.


Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Welcome Baby Girl

Folks were mighty busy last week.

Earlier today, we told you that “Empire” stars Grace Gealey and Trai Byers tied the knot on Thursday. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend weren’t short on excitement either. According to People, Chrissy gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Thursday, April 14. They named her Luna Simone.

“She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy,” Chrissy announced on Instagram Sunday.


In the past, Chrissy opened up about facing fertility issues. She couldn’t really understand why she was struggling to conceive.

“The big question was why this wasn’t working for us when I was young, and he was healthy,” she told Self magazine. “I thought, people get pregnant by accident all the time! How does this happen?”

The couple eventually turned to IVF, which also came with its share of challenges.

“Emotionally, it could be really hard,” she said. “When you have these high-highs and low-lows, and you’re, like, cuckoo pants.”

“You don’t want to get your hopes up, but of course, you do,” she continued.

Thankfully, the supermodel had a healthy pregnancy, and now, she has a beautiful baby girl.

Congrats to John and Chrissy!


If You Could Choose The Sex Of Your Baby, Would You Want A Girl?

choose the sex of your baby


I love hearing my birth story. But I was always shocked to learn that my parents didn’t want whether they were having a boy or a girl. My mom is not one for surprises and I was shocked to hear she kept one from herself for nine months. The only thing I can think of to explain it, is that after a series of miscarriages, they didn’t want to get their hopes up too high.

But that wasn’t the case for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. Like my parents, Chrissy and John had trouble conceiving. These two turned to in vitro fertilization. And with in vitro, you can not only learn the sex of your baby, you can choose it.

Which is what Teigen did. And now that that information has come to the light, she’s trending. If you ask me, it’s because she chose to have a girl, instead of boy which most people think would be the choice. “Give your husband a boy.” I remember watching Brandy’s short-lived reality show about her pregnancy and fake husband, Robert Smith. During the course of the show Smith’s friend tells him something to the affect of, ‘You know it takes a real man to have a son.” Interestingly enough, it’s not just men who perpetuate these ideals. There have been countless times when I’ve head women say they don’t want to have girls because girls are somehow more difficult to raise. It’s an interesting concept when these same women will readily agree that boys and even men mature slower than most girls and women. You know how patriarchy goes.

But y’all know Chrissy is not a woman of convention. She explained her decision to only implant the girl embryo, in an interview with People

“I’ve made this decision. Not only am I having a girl, but I picked the girl from her little embryo. I picked her and was like, ‘Let’s put in the girl’ “ 

Chrissy said she wanted a daughter for her husband.

“I was most excited and allured by the fact that John would be the best father to a little girl.” the Cravings author confessed. “He deserves a little girl … He deserves that bond.”

Teigen even said that she’s excited for her daughter and John to go on daddy-daughter dates.

“How soft they get, how mushy, and excited they get. It’s so cute.”

Still, there are some who are so concerned about the couple having a son. Chrissy said, “A boy will come along. We’ll get there too, so it’s not like we really have to pick.”

If you, for one reason or another, were given the opportunity to choose the sex of your baby, would you? Would you choose a boy or girl?

There’s a pretty good chance that there is a John Legend track (or two) on your panty-dropper playlist. You know, that playlist that you can always fall back on when you and Bae have some alone time, and you are looking to set the mood. Well, the “All of Me” singer would like to help you take date night to higher heights and deeper depths with his new wine collection, which he says is “inspired by true love.”

According to the Sonoma Valley Sun, Legend has partnered with Jean-Charles Boisset and Raymond Vineyards to create Legend Vineyard Exclusive or LVE.

“As with my music, I searched for the right collaborator, a vineyard whose pursuit of the perfect blend and standards of excellence equaled my own,” the singer and soon-to-be dad said in a statement. “With roots deep in the Napa Valley and award-winning wines known for beautiful balance, finesse and power, working with Jean-Charles and Raymond Vineyards was the perfect union.”

“Legend Vineyard Exclusive was a dream long in the making,” the singer, who has previously worked with Boisset, explained.

LVE Wines is all about “his passion, his love, and his emotion,” Boisset explained. The line’s current offerings include Cabernet Sauvignon, priced at $85.00 per bottle, and a Napa Valley Chardonnay, which is priced at $45.00 per bottle.

Just one month after Chrissy Teigen shared that her and husband, John Legend, had been struggling to conceive, the high-profile couple took to social media with some amazing news: they’re pregnant! The supermodel announced her pregnancy on Instagram Monday evening.

John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant 🙂 As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx

Complications with fertility can be hard on any couple; we’re so happy to hear that John and Chrissy are on the fast track to fulfilling their parenthood dreams.

“I will say, honestly, John and I are having trouble. We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened. But my gosh, it’s been a process!” the 29-year-old shared during a taping of “Tyra Banks Presents the Fab Life.” “So, anytime somebody asks me if I’m going to have kids, I’m like, ’One day, you’re going to ask that to the wrong girl who’s really struggling, and it’s going to be really hurtful to them. And I hate that. So, I hate it. Stop asking me!”

Congrats to this beautiful couple!

Say what you want about Chrissy Teigen, but you can’t deny that she and John Legend make an adorable couple, and their love makes for great entertainment. In fact, their marriage is so amusing that it has inspired a television show.

what's up chicken butt

“Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris recently scored a three-year overall deal with ABC Studios, and one of the new projects he intends to develop is one inspired by the singer and the swimsuit model’s romance.

“It’s inspired by them — they’re both super creative and super effusive, and I’m just fans of them and everything they stand for,” Barris told Buzz Feed. “I’m really excited about it.”

What’s even more interesting is that the superstar couple is on-board to produce the project. The series has tentatively been titled “Ordinary People,” pulled from John’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning song.

“I feel that song serves a thematic background for the show,” Barris said.

The show is still in its early developmental stages, but the story “will be about an interracial couple.”

“We don’t know what’s going to be what,” Barris said. “But it will be a part of the show in terms of showing those two world’s colliding and coming together — their issues and their obstacles that [happen inside] their personal relationship.”
