Mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen gets candid about undergoing in vitro fertilization and gender selection.
“I’ve made this decision,” the FABLife host, 30, tells PEOPLE. “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 Lip Sync Battle star said her husband, Grammy Award-winning singer John Legend, will be an amazing father.
“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 shared. “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. A boy will come along. 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!”
What does she love about little baby girls?
“How soft they get, how mushy, and excited they get. It’s so cute,” she said.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model went on to talk about impending parenthood.
“I’m excited to see what he is going to do because I think we’ll have two very different styles. I’m excited to see that part of John; 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,’ but we have no idea what we’re going to be like as parents,” she shared. “I think it’ll be really fun. I’m excited.”
The mom-to-be recently admitted they will be hiring a night nurse when their daughter arrives.
