Chrissy captioned her new baby’s photo: “Hello, world! This is Miles Theodore Stephens – We are drowning in his little peeps and nuzzles,” she wrote. “Our household feels overwhelmed with love. Thank you for all your well wishes!””

Legend revealed the inspiration behind his son’s name.

“We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens (for Nina Simone); every name we give to our kids I think will have a little bit of musical history to it. So Miles is, of course, is the same name as the great Miles Davis,” the award-winning singer said on the red carpet.

Chrissy took a liking to Miles’ middle name and that’s how they came up with it.

“Chrissy really liked the name Theodore, so we put it all together as Miles Theodore Stephens. When he came out and we hung out with him for a little while we were like, ‘Yeah, he looks like a Miles,’ ” John shared.

John had to leave his wife and newborn at home while he attended the Billboard Music Awards, where he was set to perform “A Good Night.” Chrissy watched the show from home and took to Twitter to shade her hubby:

There are rumors that John and Chrissy don’t spend a lot of time together, and they live in separate homes. According to these streets, he only calls on her to make red carpet appearances with him and help maintain the facade that he’s a heterosexual male. The babies help push this narrative.
