John Legend is quickly earning our vote for husband of the year.
Not only does he gush about Chrissy Teigen on the regular, he’s now instructing the momshaming brigade to fire their criticism at him, not just his wife.
Last month, Teigen was attacked by the mommy mafia when she went out to dinner with her husband about a week after giving birth.
“She’s hitting the streets already????” wrote one jerk on Twitter. “Damn these so called celebrities want to show off so bad after giving birth.”
“Spend bonding time with your baby and not let the nanny or babysitter raise them!”
Naturally, Teigen hit back, but Legend thinks it’s unfair that she had to take all the heat.
These days, moms and dads equally share the responsibility of child-rearing, yet Teigen received all of the criticism for the unforgivable crime of leaving daughter Luna with a sitter for a couple hours.
The “All of Me” singer took to Twitter to point out the double standard and ponder why all the ire is directed toward the mom.
“Funny there’s no dad-shaming,” he tweeted.
“When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.”
I’m actually getting a little weepy here.
This man just gets it. Literally and figuratively.
On Mother’s Day, Legend shared a photo of his wife and daughter and included this tribute:
“To my wonderful wife, @chrissyteigen. 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!”
Methinks Chrissy and Luna are pretty lucky, too.
