Nobody knows how to embarrass you like your kids. John Legend just shared the hilarious way his 4-year-old son Miles makes him blush during school drop-off, and it’s so funny.
The “In My Mind” singer appeared on an episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden last week, alongside Jennifer Garner. Host James Corden bonded with the stars over the fact that they all have three kids, prompting Legend to sing, “Three is the magic number.” Then the conversation turned to the special request Legend’s kids make on the way to school.
“When you drive your kids to school, I overhear that they request that you play your own music in the car?” Corden asked. “Ah, c’mon!” Garner exclaimed, making Legend laugh.
“Especially my son,” Legend confirmed. “He’s — literally — my biggest fan.” How cute is that?
“He knows all songs. Not only does he know the songs, he’s like Rainman with the lengths of the songs,” Legend continued. “He remembers how long each song is, and he’s like, ‘Actually, “Green Light” is a little longer than this one, it’s 3:19.’”
Then Corden asked what we’re all thinking: “Have you ever pulled up next to a parent, like in the drop-off line, with your own music blaring out?”
“Yes. And it’s embarrassing,” Legend responds, making the audience laugh. “My kids go to school with, like, Jay-Z’s kids and Beyonce’s kids, and I’m pulling up playing my music loud, and it’s embarrassing, honestly.”
Especially because Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t playing their music in the car.
“No, he’s not playing, you know, ‘Reasonable Doubt,’ in the car with his kids,” Legend added.
John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Have Three Kids
Legend shares Miles and daughters Luna, 7, and Esti, 3 months, with wife Chrissy Teigen.
Luna recently celebrated her birthday, which Legend marked with a series of photos of the little girl. “Happy 7th birthday to our kind, smart, creative, beautiful little girl Luna Simone,” he wrote on Instagram. “She brings us so much light and love every single day and I feel so lucky to be her dad.”
He also took her out on a date. “Daddy-daughter birthday date ❤️,” Legend wrote on April 14. He also shared a photo of him wearing a pink Gucci sweater with red pants posing next to Luna, who is dressed in a ballerina pink gown with a bow in her hair.
John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Like Baking With Their Kids
Teigen recently posted a sweet video of a family baking night. She, Legend, Miles, and Luna whip together a batch of the Cravings author’s famous chocolate chip cookies, and it’s so cute. Miles looks just like Legend as he wields a wooden spoon to mix up the batter, while sitting on the counter.
“Chocolate chunk cookies so easy a kid could (very messily) do it!” Teigen wrote on Instagram. So cute!
John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Don’t Talk About Social Media With Their Kids
Although Legend and Teigen often post about their kids on social media, they don’t have any plans for their little ones to get their own accounts right now.
In a Sept. 2022 interview with The New Yorker, the EGOT winner said, “We don’t really talk about social media with them. They know that we’re famous, and they know that not everyone’s parents do what we do. But I don’t feel like they understand anything about social media yet.”
He added, “I assume kids get these kinds of accounts when they become tweens or early teen-agers, and I’m scared! Who knows what app they’ll be using at that point. You just hope they’re wise and don’t do anything life-ruining with it. But, you know, thirteen-year-olds are going to be stupid sometimes, and obviously they’ll be under more of a magnifying glass than other thirteen-year-olds.”
