John Legend gave updates about staying at home, and it seems the celebrity dad is not very impressed with the precautionary rule coupled with parenthood.


R & B star, John Legend, is part of the celebrities who have been documenting their stay at home with family, but he has a different opinion about the indoor rules these days.

Speaking to People about activities around the home, the "Evolver" songster explained that he and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, were keeping up the fun and games at home while homeschooling the kids.

Thanks to digital means, Legend was able to have his exclusive chat with People as he examined that he and Teigen were working on educating the kids on how to keep up their health amid COVID-19. He said:

"We talk a lot about washing hands. We used to do that plenty before, but now it just takes on extra urgency."

John went on as he mentioned that Luna, 4, was coming to terms with keeping up her hygiene, but she could forget sometimes and cough out without doing the elbow guide. He, however, said they had it under control, but it "wasn't easy."



Some weeks back, Legend and his wife brought up a thoughtful idea and shared it with fans in an Instagram live video. The singer took it upon himself to take music requests from fans and sing to them.

Earlier in the month, the star couple were photographed basking at the California beach seemingly before the lockdown.

His "Twitter Mayor" wife was present to give her witty and comic support. While Legend sat in front of his piano, ready to take requests, Chrissy was present in her towel, head wrap, and a glass of wine. 



Two weeks ago, Coldplay's Chris Martin took to Twitter, where he announced his then-upcoming e-concert where he entertained fans who have been cooped up at home and bored.

On seeing Martin's tweet, Legend quoted the post and commended his fellow celebrity and pal, while also announcing his concert too. He went on to inform fans to share their opinion on which artiste to bring into the e-concert "challenge."



Earlier in the month, the star couple were photographed basking at the California beach seemingly before the lockdown. The former swimsuit model and her hubby, John, thought they needed one more outdoor leisure before "hibernation."

Just as many states are under lockdown, California is no different as its governor, Gavin Newsom, announced the on-going quarantine. He also placed a rule that individuals aged 65 and above must be in Self-Isolation.

Buttressing the governor's point, former governor of California and veteran actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger also sent a message out to citizens about the curfew on movements and adherence to rules.
