Chrissy Teigen and John Legend enjoy royalty-themed baby shower

By Chloe Best

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were the king and queen of their baby shower, which the excited couple celebrated on Sunday (Mar. 6) ahead of the arrival of their first child. The parents-to-be invited family and friends to the New Yorkevents space Material Good, which is designed like a chic city apartment, for a princess-themed afternoon.

The mum-to-be documented the special day with her fans on Instagram, including a photo of herself planting a kiss on John's face as he sat smiling while wearing a crown emblazoned with the words "Baby Daddy".

Chrissy had a similar crown of her own that said "Baby Mama" in silver glitter. The model was glowing in a white fitted dress and horse-print trench coat, and wore her hair tied back into a braided updo.

In another snap Chrissy showed herself cuddling up to one of her special guests – her pet French bulldog Penny. An array of gift bags and hampers could be seen in the background, as the soon-to-be parents were showered with presents for their baby girl.

In return, John and Chrissy put on a special lunch for their guests, which included custom-made biscuits decorated as crowns, milk bottles and BabyGros that they showed off on social media.

"Luckiest girls around. <3 <3 <3," Chrissy captioned a photo of the sweet treats.

Chrissy is set to welcome her baby girl in April, but recently faced criticism after revealing that she chose a female embryo during IVF to ensure that she and her husband would have a daughter. The 30-year-old later defended herself on Twitter, commenting: "From reading everything tonight, I think I made a mistake in thinking people understood the process better than they do, which is my fault…

"We didn't create a little girl. We had multiple embryos. Girls and boys. We simply chose to put in a female first (and second)... We didn't 'throw away' anything and still would love to have more of both in the future. Hard to explain such a complicated process here… You'd be surprised at how many people you know go through this. Also every doctor knows the sex of the embryos, it isn't some grand secret..."
