Just when we thought we knew everything there was to know about supermodel mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen's pregnancy she dishes even more details. The model and her singer husband John Legend are just a few short months away from welcoming their first child— a baby girl.

Teigen and Legend used in vitro fertilization to help them conceive and they've had a lot more say in their pregnancy than most, including the baby's gender. "I've made this decision," Tiegen 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 announced her and Legend were expecting a girl in an Instagram post and we've been dreaming about what her mini-me will be like ever since.

"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 explained. "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!" Look's like Teigen's hoping the newest addition to their family will be a total daddy's girl. Seeing the way Legend is a doting dad to the duo's three pups, we have no doubt she will be.

"I'm excited to see what he is going to do because I think we'll have two very different styles," Teigen said. "I'm excited to see that part of John; We've been together so long, and sometimes we look at each other and we're like, 'I know everything about you and you know everything about me,' but we have no idea what we're going to be like as parents."

We can't wait to see what they'll be like as parents either. Although we already have a feeling they'll be the coolest parents ever. After all, they're already the ultimate #RelationshipGoals so we're sure once their little baby is born #ParentingGoals will totally become a thing...
