John Legend Revealed The Really Sweet Meaning Behind The Name For His And Chrissy Teigen's New Baby, Esti

    John and Chrissy welcomed their third child, a daughter named Esti Maxine, in January.

    So, you probably heard a little over a week ago that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen had welcomed another baby.

    Chrissy smiles widely as she stands next to John on the red carpet. Chrissy is wearing a feathered dress with a sequined top and John is wearing a dark suit and tie

    Her name's Esti. She's super cute.

    But when you heard the name, you probably wondered what it meant or where they got it from.

    Well, John just shared the answer in an interview published today by E! News.

    He told the site that as "it turns out, [his] great-grandmother was named Esther."

    "It wasn't intentionally after someone," John shared, "but once Chrissy told me that idea, I was like, 'Oh, my great-grandmother's name was Esther.'"

    Not just that: John said there's also a family connection to Esti's middle name. "We wanted to already name her middle name Maxine after my grandmother, whose middle name was Maxine," he said. "So, it's a lot of my family in the name."

    Aww, I love that! I bet his grandmother and great-gran would feel so honored.
