If you watch Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram stories you know the Legend family has a lot of fun — from yoga sessions in the family room to onesie Superbowl parties to holiday cooking, there is never a dull moment. And while we see a lot of both Chrissy and John spending time with Luna, 3, and Miles, 1, there are of course many precious moments that happen off-camera.
While promoting the new season of The Voice in partnership with Lay’s SheKnows exclusively spoke with Legend who shared he wasn’t the only musical member of the family. “Luna is getting good at really learning songs,” Legend said of his 3-year-old daughter. And unlike some kids who are embarrassed by their famous parent’s voice, Luna loves singing along to her dad’s music. “She’s really into music and loves dancing and dancing around the house. She particularly loves my Christmas album.”
“We have a record player in our dining room and we play the vinyl version of the Christmas album in the dining room and she and I just dance and sing and that’s one of our bonding times.”
But would the Grammy Award-winning artist want his daughter to go down the same path he did? “I wouldn’t discourage her,” he said of Luna wanting to potentially pursue music as a career. And yes, we know, she’s only three-years-old — but still, what if?
“I would want her to maximize whatever she wants to do. So, if she’s going to start something and get into it, I want her to work hard and practice and try to be great at it, but if it’s singing or dancing or acting, or being an engineer or whatever it is…I want her to find what she’s passionate about and then really work hard at it.”
Legend shared that his grandmother inspired him to start singing sharing, “My grandmother was a big influence on me. She was the church organist in my home town growing up,” — and so it seems that if Luna were to one day want to follow in her father’s footsteps she wouldn’t be the first to be inspired by family.
Season 18 of The Voice premieres Monday, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
