There was once a time when it seemed like music superstar John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen were never going to be able to have a baby together, before they announced that they were finally expecting a baby together. Now, parents to a beautiful baby daughter names Luna, John has opened up about fatherhood and it sounds like he has never been happier.
John said, "You never know what it's going to feel like until it happens, but, you know, I was excited. And this wasn't an accident; this was something that we have been working on. (We've been) trying to have a family for a while. Knowing that it was so important to us, I was pretty excited from the beginning, but once she (Luna) came out and she was actually a real thing that we could hug and love and see her develop, it's pretty powerful. It is a pretty powerful emotion to see the product of your love right there in front of you."
Fatherhood has clearly been going well for John Legend so far and it is obvious to see that he is loving every minute of it, even if it has also changed the dynamics of his relationship with his with Chrissy Teigen. John spoke about how having a baby has changed his marriage and how the two different dynamics compare to one another.
He added, "Being married is not the same as having a kid because being married to another adult who can take care of themselves to a degree is different than having a kid that is completely dependent on you. So, it definitely makes you realise a heightened level of responsibility and it makes you realise that there is a lot of work to be doing, and you realise what your work is for."
It is definitely going to be interesting to see how this new family life will impact the lyrics that John Legend puts in his songs. We are sure that we will get some new music from him soon enough and we are sure that it will be family based and baby related.
