According to babynames.com, Esti is a name of Latin origin that means "little star", and is often the shortened version of Estelle or Estrella.

With regard to her middle name, it appears to be a tribute to her 44-year-old musician father's late grandmother, Marjorie Maxine Stephens.

The little one's arrival comes after her parents suffered heartbreak on their journey to expanding their family.

In September 2020, the couple revealed their heartbreak at losing their baby son Jack at 20 weeks, which they later shared was an emergency abortion to save Teigen's life.

Then, in August, Teigen announced that they were expecting a baby once more, admitting that she felt "relief" to hear a heartbeat.
