He’s a beautiful little bundle of joy, by the way.

John Legend made his appearance on the red carpet of the 2018 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday May 20 in Las Vegas. When reporters started asking him about his newborn son which he had with wife Chrissy Teigen, the 39-year-old singer revealed the inspiration behind his name. John and Chrissy chose the name Miles Theodore, this past week, and revealed his full name and first photo earlier today.

“We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens and every name we give to our kids I think will have a little bit of musical history to it. So Miles of course is the same name as the great Miles Davis and Chrissy really liked the name Theodore, so we put it all together,” John said on the red carpet. “When he came out and we hung out with him for a little while, we were like, ‘He looks like a Miles.’ We’re so excited to have him in the family now.” Isn’t just that adorable?

And to top it off, Teigen posted a hilarious tweet following hubby John’s red carpet appearance, saying: “wow didn’t u just have a baby John smh go take care of it !!!!!! disgusting”. That’s our goal family right there!
