John Legend on his IVF baby Luna: 'You shouldn't be ashamed if you struggle with fertility'


We all fell a little bit more in love with John Legend after he appeared on show and talked about his gorgeous wife Chrissy Teigen and their daughter Luna who was born in April 2016.

The couple have been very honest about using IVF to have a baby and John said people shouldn't feel 'ashamed' if they are having fertility problems.

'A lot of people struggle with fertility and you shouldn't be ashamed of it,' he told Ruth, Coleen, Stacey and Jane. 'A lot of people want to have kids and maybe can't do it the natural way so it's an option that's available to a lot of people and I think people should do it if it's the right thing for them.'

Asked if the couple would have IVF again John said, 'Yeah we'll do it again, we want to have a few kids, I think like three or four.'

And John revealed a track on his latest album, Darkness And Light, was written for little Luna.

'I wrote a song specifically dedicated to her - it's called "Right By You",' he said. 'The whole album was influenced by the fact I was becoming a new father, I was writing a lot of it before she was born but when I knew we were having a baby so I was thinking a lot about that when I was writing the songs.'
