And a Legend is born.

Model and TV host Chrissy Teigen welcomed her first child with crooner John Legend on Thursday, the couple announced via social media on Sunday.

“She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy,” Teigen wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the baby’s weight — 6 pounds 11 ounces — which was dated Thursday.

Legend, 37, echoed the announcement, tweeting, “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!”

The couple didn’t encounter the easiest path to parenthood. Teigen shared on Instagram in October that she was undergoing IVF. The couple chose a ­female embryo during the process, and she stuck.

“I’ve made this decision,” Teigen, 30, told People in February. “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.’ ”

The couple are hoping for more kids in the future.

“The number of embryos we have left is not matching the number of people I want at my dinner table, so I’ll have to do it again,” Teigen said. “I wish I had frozen my eggs earlier. We have a few more on ice. Who knows what will work?”

Now, the couple are just focused on starting their family.

“We’ve been together so long, and sometimes we look at each other and we’re like, 'I know everything about you and you know everything about me,’ ” Teigen said. “But we have no idea what we’re going to be like as parents. I think it’ll be really fun. I’m excited.”
