Chrissy Teigen Defends Choice To Have A Daughter Against Twitter Backlash

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

Chrissy Teigen is so ready for John Legend to become a dad to their baby girl. 

The 30-year-old, who has been busy promoting her cookbook Cravings, told People magazine that she picked out the embryo when trying to get pregnant using in vitro fertilization.  

“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 said. “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.”

This is the first child for Teigen and Legend, who met in 2007 and married in 2013. The two dealt with fertility struggles and Teigen has been vocal about being respectful of women by not asking an invasive question like "When are the kids coming?" 

But after opening up about her choice, she received some backlash on Twitter. 

Sigh, Internet. Sigh.
