The model has defended her decision.

Chrissy Teigen has opened up about why she chose to have a daughter with John Legend.

Tiegen, who announced her pregnancy with Legend in October, underwent vitro fertilisation (IVF).

"I’ve made this decision. 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,” she revealed to The People.

“It excited me to see…just the thought of seeing [John Legend] 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!” 

The model then received a backlash from some people on Twitter but she fired back. 

Meanwhile, John Legend recently performed at The Grammys as part of a special Lionel Richie Tribute.
