John Legend is gushing over daughter Luna.
While working with babies certainly presents challenges, the musician recently revealed that his 7-month-old daughter Luna is the exception. “She was so good, it was so easy,” Legend, 37, told ET of filming his latest music video for his song, “Love Me Now,” with wife Chrissy Teigen and the couple’s baby girl. “We just did literally two takes with her.”
Of course, timing is everything, admitted Legend. “We had to catch her while she was in a good mood,” he explained. “And she woke up from her nap and had some food.”
Though the singer went on to note that their little angel, regularly sweet and serene, does have her moments — crying and throwing tantrums — he and Teigen have been warned to “assume your next child will not be as good as her, because she’s about as good as she can get.” As for whether the pair plans to expand their empire, Legend replied, “I hope so, yeah. We both hope to have more.”
Meanwhile, Luna’s role in the upcoming video is fitting, considering her name helped inspire the title of Legend’s new album, Darkness and Light, the singer revealed.
“I named my daughter Luna, which is literally light and darkness, the moon,” he explained. “She was born while the song ‘Super Fly’ by Curtis Mayfield was playing. And the first line of the song is, ‘Darkness of night, with the moon shining bright.’ ”
“I was supposed to name this album Darkness and Light, it made perfect sense,” Legend added. “This album title kind of picked itself.”
As previously reported, the pair announced the arrival of their precious bundle of joy in mid-April. “John and Chrissy are in such a joyful place with their healthy baby girl Luna,” a source close to the couple told E! News at the time. “They are surrounded by family and close friends. Chrissy and John can’t stop gushing over Luna. She is perfect!”
