It turns out giving birth to a baby girl
has been Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's plan all along.
"I've made this decision," Teigen says. "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.'"
"I think I was most excited and allured by the fact that John would be the best father to a little girl. That excited me," she continues. "It excited me to see … just the thought of seeing him with a little girl. I think he deserves a little girl. I think he deserves that bond."
The 30-year-old supermodel says the couple will eventually have a son too.
"A boy will come along," she says. "We'll get there too, so it’s not like we really have to pick. But he definitely is very lucky to have a little girl. And this girl is going to be so completely lucky to have John as her papa -- it's crazy!"
"A couple minutes after this shot, John and I learned we were having our little baby girl!" she wrote.
Legend, 37, also shared the same photo to Instagram, gushing over his wife's cover pic that was shot "the day we found out we were pregnant with our baby girl."
When ET caught up with the couple at the GRAMMYs earlier this month, Teigen said they were "working on" writing a new song
for when they welcome their first child this spring.
"We need to figure out her attitude first," the cooking aficionado
told ET exclusively. "She might be a nightmare. We don't know. Everyone just assumes she'll be the sweetest thing on the planet [but] she might be a little hard."
And they have yet to decide on a name!
"We have maybe 10 options we just switch through," Teigen shared. "We can't pick. We've got to see her."
"I think you just want to raise your boys and your girls to be smart and confident and self-aware and, just be good people," the "All of Me" singer shared.
