John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Received Fertility Advice from Kim Kardashian West (and Parenting Tips from the President!)
Although the couple were congratulated on their upcoming addition while walking the red carpet, they both joked their future may not be so bright.
“We don’t know her personality yet. It might not be a ‘congrats,’ ” Teigen said during CBS’ red carpet pre-show. Added Legend, “Maybe it’s a punishment.”
But meeting their baby girl isn’t the only thing their waiting on: They have yet to decide on a name or finish the nursery. “Our house is still being renovated,” said Legend.
“We’re mentally ready, but physically, no. At least I’m not,” said Teigen.
“It’s weird because we don’t really know what to expect,” Legend told E! News. Added Teigen, “We’re gonna let it happen. She’s gonna fall right out and we’ll be good.”
As Kim Kardashian West has been giving Teigen pregnancy tips — “Kim gave me advice [on fertility] even before we started. She’s been here the entire time for advice,” the model told E! News — it’s President Barack Obama who’s been sharing secrets with Legend.
“He just said, ‘Be prepared to wrapped around their little finger as their dad,’ ” the “All of Me” singer told CBS.
The couple are already winning more than just best dressed parents-to-be: Prior to their arrival, Legend, 37, won best song written for visual media for “Glory.”
The singer is also up for best rap/sung collaboration for both “One Man Can Change the World,” his song with Big Sean and Kanye West, as well as “Glory,” his song with Common, and best rap song for “Glory.”
It’s no surprise Teigen — who is pregnant with the couple’s first child, a baby girl — decided to put her baby belly on display. On Friday, the expectant star told reporters she was “definitely going to embrace the bump” with her ensemble.
Although she knew she wanted a form-fitting gown, Teigen still hadn’t her final decision on a dress.
“I grow two inches every 12 days … not that anyone’s counting,” she joked of her fittings. “They’re different every time because I keep growing like crazy. But we’re looking at two very different options.”
She added, “I like to go really simple, usually, but 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.”
