"I think you just want to raise your boys and your girls to be smart and confident and self-aware and, just be good people," Legend said.

In preparing for the arrival of their new edition, the couple has been remodeling their new $14 million, 5-bedroom, 8-bathroom Beverly Hills home that once belonged to Rihanna.

"We're trying to get the house ready before the baby gets here, but I don't know if we're going to get done in time," Legend said.

Chrissy is relishing the experience by documenting her pregnancy journey on Instagram and Snapchat, but amidst all the fun they’re having, they still have an important job left: naming their baby girl.

"We're almost avoiding the 'P,' because all of our dogs have 'P' names," Legend said.
