Chrissy Teigen Admits John Legend ‘Ties My Shoes’ – and Soon He’ll Be ‘Shaving My Legs’

John Legend has a slew of new duties now that he and wife Chrissy Teigen are expecting.

“He ties my shoes for me — it’s hard to bend over,” the model, 30, told PEOPLE Sunday as she and Legend stepped out at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills. “We are almost at the point where he will have to shave my legs for me.”

The couple announced in October that they are expecting and later revealed that the new addition to the family will be a girl.

Teigen sported a green, form-fitting Galvan dress — “It’s a color that I really hadn’t worn before and it’s hard to find a good fabric right now” — topped with vintage Cartier Paris earrings to the event. Both she and Legend, who wore a simply black suit and tie, cradled Teigen’s baby belly as they posed for pictures.

Does the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party count as a Valentine's date?

She told PEOPLE at the event that Legend, who is performing a tribute to Lionel Richie at Monday’s awards ceremony, is “going to be the best father … he deserves a little girl.”

And what will Teigen be wearing to the show? She hasn’t decided.

“I grow two inches every 12 days … not that anyone’s counting,” the model, who makes her seventh appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition this week, joked to PEOPLE on Friday. “We’re looking at two very different options. We want to have a moment and really have fun with it this year. I have a black option — a black lace — and then a white option. I’m still thinking.”

Foremost on her mind, however, is the biggest change of all — becoming a mom.

“I’m just looking forward to seeing her face, and having her in my arms so I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is real!'” Teigen explains. “Right now it’s not real enough. I feel her [moving], but it’s still not real.”

Somehow I managed to go through my pregnancies tying my own shoes and shaving my own legs. Please stop.

I’m excited for them! Going to be a beautiful baby!

@Leigh – I wasn’t so lucky and my husband had to tie my shoes for me – as well as help me up from the couch

I was able to tie my shoes during my pregnancy, it’s depending on a person, everyone is different.

Ms. Chrissy must think she is such a Goddess. Really little “girl”, you need your husband to do all of the things that you can do for yourself just because you’re pregnant? Geesh, are you independent at all? Guess you’re enjoying the luxuries that your rich husband is affording the two of you. I don’t understand how you “were” a model…….wow. Your “body” looks a tad better than Kate Upton’s awkward body. It’s okay Chrissy Teigen, you can still tie your shoes, you can still shave your legs, you can still go to the bathroom by yourself, can’t ya? Just saying’
