Chrissy Teigen has given birth to her first child with her husband John Legend.

The 30-year-old announced her newborn daughter's arrival on Instagram on Sunday 17 April alongside a photo showingthe baby's weight.

"She's here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you," Teigen wrote. "And sleepy. Very sleepy."

Legend shared a similar announcement on Twitter, revealing the date Luna was born.

"Our new love is here," he wrote. "Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday the 14th. We couldn't be happier." 

Teigen later thanked her fans for their congratulations messages and proved becoming a mother hasn't changed her usual witty tweet style. 

Teigen and Legend announced they were expecting their first child in October 2015 after going through fertility struggles.

Posting a happy photo with her husband's hand resting on her stomach, Teigen shared the news. 

 "John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant," she wrote.

Teigen continued: "As many of you know, we've been trying to have a baby for a while now.

"It hasn't been easy, but we kept trying because we can't wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We're so excited that it's finally happening."

The new mum announced in February 2016 she had "chosen" her baby's sex through IVF. 

"I've made this decision," Teigen told People magazine.

"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'."

Teigen said she came to a decision over the gender of her baby because Legend "deserves a little girl".

"I think I was most excited and allured by the fact that John would be the best father to a little girl," she said.

"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."

Congratulations Teigen and Legend!
