If there’s one thing that we know about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, it’s that they are besotted with their adorable one-year-old daughter, Luna. And if you want to hear the most beautiful take on a parent’s love for their child, just check out what he had to say this week.


Appearing on The Late Show last night, the 38-year-old gushed over his one-year-old daughter to show host Stephen Colbert.


“It’s a different kind of love. It’s very pure, it’s unconditional, but they haven’t earned it yet. They didn’t do anything, they just exist and you love them completely, but it’s not built on anything other than their existence,” he said.


John has been married to his model wife Chrissy Teigen for almost four years, and he also offered up a heart-warming insight into how parenthood has positively impacted his relationship.


“It’s beautiful. It’s very emotional, and it brings you and your wife closer together. It’s a very powerful feeling to see the product of your love right there in front of you,” he added.

It’s clear that John is devoted as both a father and a husband, as his recent comments about Chrissy’s experience with postpartum depression have proven.


Chrissy opened up about her experience in an interview with Glamour magazine back in March, admitting that she never thought it would happen to her.


“I have a great life. I have all the help I could need…But postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason why it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do,” she revealed.


At the time, she praised John for being such a supportive presence in her life, and he has since spoken candidly about watching Chrissy go through such an ordeal.

Just last month, he opened up about how much he admires Chrissy for sharing her story with the public, and battling through the traumatic experience.


“I am so proud of her for writing about her struggles and letting people know about it. It takes a lot of courage, and she really is amazing for doing that,” he told Vanity Fair.


“The reason why she acknowledged the pain that she’s going through was for her to let other women know that they’re not alone, and that it can happen to anyone.


“To be honest, I was really scared, because I didn’t know what exactly she was feeling, or how to help her. All I knew was that it was my job to do everything I could to help her and try to understand what she was going through. It’s about being compassionate and supporting her, and telling her no matter what, I am going to be there for her and that I love her.”


What a super-star.
