John Legend is already an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winner — but he couldn’t be more excited for his next title: dad!

Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen, who is pregnant with a girl, walked the red carpet Friday night at the 2016 NAACP Image Awards in Pasadena, California, where the soulful singer received the illustrious President’s Award.

“I’m so excited to be a father,” Legend told PEOPLE, with Teigen, who was all smiles, looking on. “I love my wife so much and I love the idea that we created something that is a reflection of both of us and love.”

Legend, 37, and Teigen, 30, announced in October that they were expecting.

Friday’s 47th annual NAACP Image Awards was attending by stars including Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Sylvester Stallone, Spike Lee, Ice Cube¬†and Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Good Lord, please stop talking about this pregnancy.

Nature created the baby! All you did was put two and two together. Don’t take so much credit for something you really didn’t do.

I do not understand her appeal. She is just odd. Her pregnancy will go on forever, and based on the pregnancy news? coverage, I’m sure we can expect hourly updates on when baby poops, eats, and sleeps.

This is gonna be one loooooong pregnancy. These two are as self-absorbed as Kim & Kayne.

These two. Wowsa. Something we created that is a reflection of us both and love? I have a feeling they are going to be in for a rude awakening when they actually have a baby, because it will be a person and not a painting from one of those bring your own wine studios.

Wasn’t this pregnancy a result of IVF? If so they didn’t create anything, the technitions in a lab did.
(I’m not snarking on them, but they did not “create” this baby in the way he’s inplying)
