That moment when your child calls you by your first name is always a little shocking, leaving you to wonder: Is this what the teenage years will be like?!
John Legend recently got to experience that shock first hand when his daughter, Luna, called him by his first name.
“John, would you like to hold her?” Luna casually asks him as she carries over the family’s new rescue pup, Petey.
“John, I’m not ‘John.’ I’m your dad,” Legend responds in an effort to correct his toddler.
Chrissy Teigen couldn’t help but share the video on Instagram and clearly got a kick out of her daughter calling her husband by his first name as she’s heard giggling off-camera.
“Excuse me?” she wrote in the perfectly succinct caption.
Her followers loved the cute video, including Gigi Hadid, who just responded with an amused, “BAHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!” And fitness influencer Kayla Itsines wrote, “OMG PARDON HAHAHA.”
Teigen’s Instagram has recently been flooded with images of the furry and fluffy new pet, who the family rescued from Wagmore Pet Hotel & Spa earlier this month.
Teigen and Legend were inspired to rescue Petey after hearing about the organization on The Ellen Show. Ellen DeGeneres spoke about the Wagmore Pet Hotel & Spa’s desire to find rescue homes for a family of eight puppies, including Petey. Soon after seeing the show, Teigen and Legend decided to rescue the pup.
“This little guy grabbed our heart first and will hold onto it forever,” Teigen wrote when she posted the news.
New pets and calling dad by his first name? The Legend-Teigen family is already having quite the epic new year!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
