John Legend’s Twitter Bio Spotlights How Important Family Is to Him

John Legend is many things to many people: an EGOT winner, a dynamic musician, and one of the beloved coaches on the singing competition show The Voice. He has earned a place in history as one of the most talented performers of the past several decades. Still, when it comes to the way that Legend views himself, one thing is crystal clear — he is a family man, first and foremost. Those who question his devotion to his wife and children need only take a quick look at his Twitter account, which boasts over 13 million followers.

The old saying, that behind every good man is a good woman, certainly rings true in the case of Legend and Teigen. The two first met when Teigen was a model on the rise and Legend was already an established singer/songwriter.

Teigen was hired as a model for Legend’s “Stereo” music video and the two hit it off immediately. Initially, neither Legend nor Teigen expected that their whirlwind romance would last since it technically began as a “hookup.” However, they started dating and soon, were inseparable. 

In 2011, Teigen and Legend got engaged. Their 2013 wedding was located in Lake Como, Italy, and was truly unforgettable. The highlight of the reception was undoubtedly Legend performing a song that he had written for his new wife: “All of Me.”

Even after seven years of marriage, Legend and Teigen remain devoted to each other, as evidenced by Legend’s Twitter bio, the first part of which reads: “Chrissy’s husband. Father of Luna & Miles.”

This might seem like a simple bit of wording, but it proves several things. First, that Legend values his identity as a partner and that he isn’t vain.

How many children do John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have?

Although Legend and Teigen’s path to parenthood wasn’t easy, and they admitted to having problems with infertility, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. In April 2016, they welcomed a daughter, whom they named Luna Simone. Two years later, they added a son named Miles Theodore to the mix.

Both Legend and Teigen love sharing pictures and videos of their children to social media and fans enjoy seeing the images of the adorable children. Miles, in particular, looks just like his father, complete with his usual serious expression. Teigen and Legend are laid-back parents, and bring their children with them often, whether out to eat at a restaurant or on a tropical vacation.

Many Hollywood couples prefer to keep their relationship away from the spotlight, and never to discuss the day-to-day mechanics of their union. However, Legend isn’t shy about showing his love for Teigen and regularly praises her to reporters and on social media. As Legend claimed in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, he’s her “biggest cheerleader” and is always pushing her to do more and informing her how much people love her.

It’s definitely not just an act with Legend. He recently showed his affection for Teigen in a big way when he cut a business trip short to fly back home to Teigen and watch TV with her because she wasn’t feeling like herself. Teigen shouted out her husband on social media, saying: “Just a few hours but it meant a lot. Thank u.”

For those who don’t believe in love, they need only look to Legend and Teigen, who are proving that love in Hollywood is alive and well.
