Ah, celebrities. Sometimes, they have enough money and resources to chose the gender of their baby for a super arbitrary reason…
Which is just what Chrissy Teigen did. The model hasn’t been shy about undergoing in vitro fertilization, but she took it a step further by picking the exact embryo she was going to use. Because…she wanted him to have a father/daughter bond?
“I’ve made this decision,” Teigen tells PEOPLE exclusively while chatting about her book Cravings in this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday. “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.’ ”
“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 explains. “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!”
Teigen, 30, thinks that something magical happens to guys when they become a dad to a daughter: “How soft they get, how mushy, and excited they get. It’s so cute,” she says.
Not sure why she had to choose if she eventually wants both, but whatev. I’ve heard rumors that Chirssy is VERY proprietary over John and doesn’t want women around him for fear he will cheat- maybe I’m crazy, but this might be another way she’s getting him to not cheat/think about cheating, if he can empathize with women/womanhood more. Does that make sense? I don’t know.
Either way, let’s talk NAMES! What do you think Chrissy and John will name their little girl??
