Since being vocal about undergoing in vitro fertilization in order to become pregnant, mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen opened up to the public even further Wednesday, revealing that she actually chose to have a baby girl.
Married for two years now, Chrissy and John Legend made the decision to use the female embryo during fertilization and hoped for a baby girl.
In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Chrissy said,
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. 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!
It's not unlike the 30-year-old author of the recently-released cookbook "Cravings" to be candid with the public and reply to even the most demonstrative Internet trolls when they come knocking at her door.
Following the news of the couple's decision to hand-pick their baby girl, the haters came out of the woodwork once again to criticize the Sports Illustrated supermodel.
To the influx of unwanted commentary on her first child and well-being of her family, this is what Chrissy had to say:
She began with a sarcastic approach, baffled at people's disdain for what has become such a common practice today.
She continued joking, but genuinely tried to understand how some might not find the subject of in vitro and embryo selection acceptable.
Then followers started reaching for hypothetical situations, trying far too hard to make a point, and Chrissy tells 'em to cut the sh*t.
The haters are not worthy, Chrissy!
The couple's daughter is due this spring, and despite the concerted and fruitless efforts of those voicing their disapproval behind screens, she will surely be welcomed with open arms.
