John Legend and Chrissy Teigen haven’t let daughter watch TV yet

She may be all over social media thanks to her supermodel mum Chrissy Teigen’s love of Snapchat, but little Luna Legend doesn’t watch TV.

Her father John Legend told Entertainment Tonight that he and wife Chrissy haven’t exposed the one year-old to much technology yet.

“We actually haven’t given her any entertainment [or] television yet, but soon enough,” he said. “She sees us on our phones all day and she’s, like, jealous. She wants to grab them all the time.”


Happy birthday, Luna Simone!

The singer, who has been involved in charitable causes including HIV/AIDS awareness, relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina and education, said that Luna weighs on his mind when it comes to his philanthropy.

“I think about the world I want my daughter to grow up in,” he said.

“I think about the world I want to see, and I want a world where people have opportunity and where people have justice, where people have equality. I’m in a position where I [can] advocate for them, fight for them, and use my celebrity and my voice and my audience for good.”
