The couple’s baby was born on Friday, Jan. 13, the proud father confirmed hours after his child’s arrival.
Legend, 43, told a crowd at a private concert that they welcomed “the little baby this morning.”
“What a blessed day,” he said.
The singer added that while he “didn’t get a lot of sleep” he “feels energized” after spending “a lot of time” at the hospital.
Attendees of the special event immediately headed to social media to share the big baby news.
“@johnlegend just told us he had a baby this morning,” one concertgoer wrote.
Speaking with PEOPLE in March, the multi-hyphenate talked about his family’s preparation for their new addition.
“We’re all excited,” Legend said, “and, you know, my kids are old enough to really be aware of what’s happening, so they’re really anticipating having a new sibling in their lives. And I think they’ll be good at being a big sister and big brother.”
In September, Teigen, 37, told PEOPLE that Luna and Miles were “very excited” about their family’s new addition and that they learned about her pregnancy early on.
“Since we did IVF, we knew probably nine days after we did the transfer that it had worked and we were pregnant,” she said. “I told them very, very early.”
“They knew that I was going in for the transfer, that we were going to go in and put this egg inside Mommy’s belly. So they knew from the very, very beginning, and they knew there was a chance it might not work because that’s happened before,” explained Teigen, who announced her pregnancy in August.
