John Legend's daughter Luna melts hearts while feeding her little brother in touching video
Luna Simone, John Legend’s 2-year-old daughter, is enjoying her role as big sister in a new video shared by her proud mom, Chrissy Teigen, on Instagram. Legend and Teigen were scared about Luna’s reaction to having a new baby in the house, but it seems like she’s doing just fine.
Chrissy Teigen melted hearts all over social media with an adorable video of her daughter Luna trying to feed her little brother Miles. In the footage, both kids are sitting on a sofa under the vigilant eye of Teigen behind the camera, while Luna holds a bottle to her sibling’s mouth.
"I think she’s just starting to realize though that he might be competition. So, in some ways, it’s good because she’s stepping her game up."
She then lets go of it, as she tries to teach her brother how to hold it up by himself “hold it with two hands, Miles,” she says. But the 6-months-old doesn’t seem to be interested in the bottle, as he keeps staring at his big sister and his mother with a smile on his face.
Teigen only used a crying emoji on her Instagram caption, but fans filled the comment section gushing about the cute siblings. “Luna looks like Chrissy and Miles like John. Adorbs!!!” wrote one user.
Another added, “There is nothing like seeing your older child be so sweet & loving to their little sibling,” and a third one chimed in to say “You have the cutest family in the world.”
EMBRACING THE BIG SISTER ROLE
Even though little Luna seems to be enjoying being the big sister, her parents were scared at first about her reaction to having a new baby “stealing” her parents’ attention from her.
Legend, 39, told Ellen DeGeneres before Miles’ birth:
“I don’t know what to expect really, because I don’t know how Luna’s going to be at sharing and being a big sister. And I don’t think she grasps exactly what’s going to happen yet, but we’ll see.”
“I think she’s just starting to realize though that he might be competition. So, in some ways, it’s good because she’s stepping her game up. She's more loving; she’s singing louder and dancing harder. She’s making sure we don’t stop paying attention to her.”
RAISING A GOOD MAN ON THIS ERA
On the same interview, Legend reflected on the responsibility of raising two kids in times where the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are on their upswing.
“I think it’s kind of a special privilege for me to raise a young man. I want to try to give him the best advice and be a good man,” he stated.
“Particularly right now, a lot of us are trying to figure out how to raise good men in this era when a lot of bad behavior by men is being exposed. We want to make sure we’re raising young men that grow up to be kind and empathetic and emotionally intelligent, and also good leaders and successful in everything they do.”
He added that the same applies to Luna, but emphasized that is more challenging when it comes to boys.
