The 44-year-old EGOT winner stood with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their three children in a special family portrait.
For Valentine's Day, John Legend was brimming with affection for his beautiful family. The 44-year-old EGOT winner stood with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their three children, Luna Simone, 6, Miles Theodore, 4 and newborn Esti Maxine, 4 weeks, in a special family portrait posted on Instagram on February 15. Standing in front of her father, who is dressed in a red sweater with black and white striped sleeves, Luna smiles endearingly. She is wearing a red short-sleeved ruffly frock and matching red Mary Janes. Teigen is holding baby Esti while dressed entirely in pink, while Miles is standing in front of his mother wearing a red jacket and khakis, per PEOPLE. The adorable snap was captioned, "I had the best Valentine's dates last night."
The proud father of three confessed that he experienced an "emotional" period when his newborn daughter Esti first arrived at home in an interview with WSJ Magazine's My Monday Morning feature. "It was making me emotional the first two nights we were home because I just felt the love expand in the house, and I felt the excitement," said Legend, who welcomed daughter Esti with Teigen in January. The singer enthusiastically announced the baby's arrival at a private concert on January 13.
Teigen, proud mom, shared a few close-ups of the young one, as she shared how sometimes motherhood makes you miss things. The author could not attend Grammys where her husband had some significant wins, she shared in an Instagram post.
Chrissy Teigen instills in her son a willingness to express his emotions. The 35-year-old author of Cravings told PEOPLE in 2021 that instead of enforcing gender norms that encourage males to hide their emotions, she is teaching her 2-year-old son Miles to embrace them. She described how she and Legend work incredibly well together to raise their children. "There is no 'be a man' in our house," she adds. "There's no right way to be a man, and John is so good about showing them through how he treats me how to be a good man, how to be a good father. It's wonderful to see," she elaborated.
Teigen expressed her thoughts in a moving blog post in June 2021, mentioning her want for Luna and Miles to "recognize my evolution." She said, "John tells me almost every day how much our daughter Luna reminds him of me. Every day, I try to make sure she's all the best parts of me, all the things I aspire to be all the time, but fail at sometimes." The author added, "And we preach kindness to her and Miles every chance we get. Will they eventually realize there is some hypocrisy there? I certainly do. But I hope they recognize my evolution."
