Chrissy Teigen is setting the record straight.
Lip Sync Battle's colorful commentator revealed on Wednesday that she chose to have a daughter during IVF. "I've made this decision," Teigen, 30, told People. "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.'" Teigen is excited to see how husband, John Legend, handles more female energy. "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!"
In the wake of her revelation, Teigen was met with scrutiny. She did her best to laugh it off, calling her daughter a "science baby" and saying she has a "taste for bacon," later admitting that she "forgot it's controversial." It became difficult to find humor in her situation, though, so Teigen returned to Twitter that night to defend herself, writing, "from reading everything tonight, i think i made a mistake in thinking people understood the process better than they do, which is my fault.."
