John Legend is a proud and supportive father.
ET was at the "All of Me" singer's LVE Collection wine tasting event at The Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles on Thursday, where he touched on co-parenting with Chrissy Teigen and his hopes for his 1-year-old daughter, Luna, and their baby on the way.
"I want them [Luna and the baby on the way] to find what they're passionate about and commit to it," Legend expressed. "Whatever it is, I'll support them. I love when Luna plays around with the piano, and I love when she plays with her little toy microphone that my friend bought her for her birthday. I get excited when it looks like she's following in my footsteps."
"But she also is excited in the kitchen, when Chrissy is cooking and she has her own little play kitchen," he continued. "Who knows what she's going to do when she's older. Maybe she'll be an engineer, maybe she'll be a computer programmer, or maybe she'll be, anything, you know. I just want her to know that she can do anything."
Legend also said that so far, he's found that fatherhood is all about learning how to work together with your partner.
"I don't know if there were a lot of surprises. You're just really learning every day," he explained. "Part of it is learning how to parent together, because even though Chrissy and I have been together for a long time, we haven't been parents together until the last year. I think you start to learn how to parent together and what kind of responsibilities you want to share and take on."
"Then it's really just fascinating watching the human mind develop and seeing what they pick it up and how quickly they pick it up. When they start walking, when they start crawling. How excited you are just when they start to turn over for the first time by themselves, all these little milestones that might seem silly to some people who don't have kids are really exciting for us," he continued. "And I think just watching her grow has been the most exciting thing. And when you start to see a personality develop, it's just really cool."
Meanwhile, the GRAMMY winner also shared what love means to him.
From the back of his wine bottle, he read, "Love is harmonious, love is forever, love is transformative, love is beauty, love is inspiration, love is wine," adding, "Love is spelt LVE but I think all those things are true."
"Love is passion, it's commitment. It’s giving your best effort. I think that’s all true," he concluded.
