Mom’s First Mother’s Day: John Legend Pens Sweet Tribute to Wife Chrissy Teigen and Daughter Luna

05/08/2016 at 01:10 PM ET

John Legend is paying tribute to his wife Chrissy Teigen‘s first weeks as a parent, in honor of Mother’s Day.

The 37-year-old singer outfitted their infant daughter Luna Simone, who they welcomed on April 14, in an adorable onesie, adorned with a sweet, handwritten message (“Happy 1st Mother’s Day”) and a red heart.

“To my wonderful wife, @chrissyteigen,” Legend wrote. “Luna and I are so lucky to have you in our lives. If our daughter can be even half as awesome as you, I will be so happy and proud. Happy 1st Mother’s Day!”

Legend posted another photo of his wife with the little girl, the model bare-faced and snuggled up with their new addition in a gray blanket.

“Happy Mother’s Day,” he wrote.

Last month, producer Mike Jackson, who works with Legend on the Underground series, told Entertainment Tonight that the couple are fully embracing parenthood.

“They’re happy. They’re elated,” Jackson said of the couple. “It’s a long time coming. They went through a lot to have this child. They’re excited — we’re all really blessed that she’s a part of all of our lives.”

i see the baby has a string tied around her wrist. why?? this seems sort of dangerous to me

It’s to remind her mother to look up from Instagram once in a while.

I was wondering the same thing about the string. I’ve noticed it in other pictures. It seems there was one where Chrissy was wearing one too. Very curious as to its purpose.

Amy and Me: It’s a Thai tradition, its a sacred white thread that was blessed at a Buddhist temple. It’s suppose to provide protection and good health to those who wear them. The baby is wearing loosely so I don’t see any harm with it.

Wow Suburbgrrrl…who peed in your Cheerios this morning?

Little Luna is a beautiful baby. I wonder if it is a tradition the grandmother has them wear, since both Chrissy and Luna wear them. Since it is loose on the baby, I don’t think it will harm her (no more dangerous than a hospital bracelet).

Love the pictures and Luna is a beautiful baby.

Anonymous has it right. Thai tradition providing blessings for any new journey in life. Very appropriate here. Beautiful baby, I wish them all the best🙂

They seem so happy and excited about their beautiful baby girl! Such a joy, especially when it wasn’t so easy to have that precious child. I personally know people who are posting pictures of their baby every day, several times a day. Get real, that’s not neglectful…it’s just being crazy about being a parent after it takes a long time to get there. Congratulations to both Chrissy and John, and their family!

Little Luna is adorable!

Just curious..... on

It must be really hot where ever they are, the baby is always just wearing a diaper. Shouldn’t a newborn be swaddled or at least kept warm.
