How John Legend’s Children Make Him Uneasy in Public
When you think of John Legend, one of the top singers of his generation, you might picture him on stage, captivating audiences with his soulful voice. But did you know that he is also a loving father and a beloved member of his community? Legend’s millions of fans around the world are not the only ones who support him; his closest neighbors are also his biggest cheerleaders. Today, we’ll take a glimpse into Legend’s life as he shares some amusing experiences with his adorable kids and a heartwarming family connection.
Embarrassing Dad Moments
Recently, Legend appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden and gave us a peek into his life as a dad. Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have three children together: Luna, their daughter born in 2016, Miles, their son born in 2018, and their newest addition, Esti, who arrived just a few months ago. Legend shared some hilarious moments that make him feel a little ashamed, thanks to his children.
Every morning, when he drops his kids off at school, Legend’s kids insist on playing his music in the car. His son, in particular, has an impressive knowledge of his songs. Legend humorously shared, “He’s like a little Rain Man when it comes to song lengths. He knows every one of my songs and even remembers how long each one is. Like, ‘Actually, ‘Green Light’ is a little longer than this one. It’s 3:19.’”
Can you imagine the embarrassment of blasting your own music while dropping off your kids at school? To make it even more cringe-worthy, there are other famous children, like Jay-Z and Beyonce’s kids, who also attend the same school. Legend confessed, “I’m pulling up with the music blaring, and it’s just so embarrassing. No, Jay-Z isn’t playing ‘Reasonable Doubt’ for his kids in the car, at least not that I’ve heard.” It’s comforting to know that even superstar parents like Legend also feel self-conscious in front of other parents!
A Special Family Connection
Legend and Teigen recently revealed the name of their newest daughter, Esti, and shared the story behind it. During a vacation in Italy, Teigen kept seeing the word “Este” and fell in love with the name. She explained, “I thought, ‘I love the name Este.’” Little did they know, the name had a deeper meaning. After naming her Esti, Legend discovered that it was his great-grandmother’s name. Initially, it was Esther until it was changed to Esti. What a wonderful family connection!
