John Legend Says His Baby With Chrissy Teigen Has a ’50/50 Chance’ of Being a Girl


John Legend was an image in powder pink at the Stars by Stella Artois event in New York City on Wednesday, Dec. 9, to perform his new song “Under the Stars“, which echoes the sounds of actual stars. After performing a live medley of his greatest hits including “All Of Me” and “Ordinary People”, Legend spoke with Us Weekly on his pregnancy journey with wife Chrissy Teigen.

“I think she gets a little self-conscious,” he said of the 30-year-old model. “You know it’s weird when you’re used to looking a certain way, and then all of a sudden you have this new thing growing inside you that changes the way you look. It affects everybody.”

He revealed the small quirk that he has always been “attracted” to pregnant women. “But I never actually had one myself,” he laughed. “So now I’m excited to be with a beautiful, pregnant woman.”

Legend says that he and Teigen have been brainstorming both traditional and “creative” names for their little bun in the oven. Though ‘Saint’ is most likely out of the question, the Grammy-winner says that his child will grow up with family friend Kanye West’s new son.

“I can imagine that they’ll probably get to know each other over the years, and that will be cool.”

The artist plays the logic card amid unofficial reports that claim that the couple is having a girl. “It might be a girl, it might be a boy as well—50/50 chance,” he says.

Girl or boy, their child can look forward to spectacular lullabies under the stars.

Legend’s performance was set beneath an LED installation on display at Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City. Sensors within the bulbs shift their height up and down while cameras capture their movement for a prime photo opp. The installation will be open to the public from Dec. 10-Dec 11., 2015 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and then again on Dec. 12, 2015 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
