John Legend Reveals Why He’s Most Excited to Have a Baby Boy (Exclusive)

The 39-year-old singer will welcome his second child with wife Chrissy Teigen in June.

John Legend couldn’t be more thrilled to have “a little Johnny" in the house. 

ET’s Ketlie Knight spoke with the singer at SoulCycle in West Hollywood on Thursday, where he gave an update on how he and wife Chrissy Teigen are preparing to welcome their baby boy.

“It’s always exciting because you never know what they're going to be like,” Legend shared. “You’re just excited that another product of your relationship and your love is going to be out there in front of you.”

“We're just excited to see how we're going to be as parents of two, and how Luna is going to be as a big sister,” he added. “It’s going to be really exciting and fun.”

Teigen and Legend chose to have a baby boy after their daughter Luna was born in April 2016, and Legend said he can’t wait to see Teigen interact with their son.

“We'll see how he is with his mom, because you know, I hear sons are really good with their moms,” he said, before adorably noting that Teigen is always on his mind -- especially with Mother's Day being right around the corner.

“Mother’s Day is coming up. I have not forgotten,” he said. “I’m prepared.”

Legend was also prepared for his first SoulCycle class on Thursday, for which he created the playlist. “This is a great song to work out to,” he said of “A Good Night.”

“It’s about, you think you’re just going out to have fun, and you happen to meet someone who might change your life forever,” he explained. “I’ve had friends that literally, the day they met their wife, they were like, ‘I’m going to marry that woman.’ So, we decided to write a song about it.”

“It’s a good, fun party song,” he added.

Legend will definitely be in the mood to celebrate when his and Teigen’s son arrives in June. In January, Teigen told ET why she hopes their baby boy is just like his dad.

"Baby Luna's more like me… and I realized I can be difficult," she said with a laugh.

"Sometimes they go rogue,” she joked, adding, "This one might be like the mailman, we don't know."

Legend’s new song, “A Good Night,” is out now. See more on the family in the video below.
