Earlier this week, Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world. The proud parents shared that they called their darling son Miles Theodore Stephens.
John Legend explained that both their children have music-inspired names. They named their baby boy after one of the most celebrated jazz musicians Miles Davis.
Their daughter is also named after a singer. The All Of Me singer added, “We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens, and every name we give to our kids will have a little bit of musical history.”
