John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are over excited and anxiously waiting for the day their baby daughter, Luna; would be old enough to sit through a movie so they can show her Beauty and the Beast.
The cute couple stunned on the red carpet at the premiere of the new live-action remake of the Disney classic at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood on Thursday. Teigen wore a semi-sheer red fringed gown, while Legend raised the bar for classiness in a perfectly tailored blue tux.
While speaking with ET’s Cameron Mathison they opened up the contributions Legend made to the film — a re-imagining of the iconic title song, “Beauty and the Beast,” with Ariana Grande.
Legend told Cameron; “We were happy to do this song. We grew up with the song. It’s such an iconic original film [and] song, and for us to be able to recreate it, it’s been fun.”
Now that the “Love Me Now” singer has recorded a Disney tune, the couple are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to show the movie to their 10-month-old daughter.
He further explained;”She hasn’t sat through a movie yet, but it’ll come soon. And she’ll be so proud of Daddy.”
Teigen is also excited about her husband’s involvement in recreating the beloved song, which she says she’s “obsessed” with, and has even been teaching herself how to play.
She said; “I think it’s such a beautiful melody. I’m so excited that Luna gets to hear it one day when she really realizes who’s singing it. I’m really excited.”
The song was originally recorded by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, and Legend said he was a bit on edge about the Canadian songstress’ reaction to hearing the final version of his cover at the premiere.
Legend continued that “I’m a little nervous! She’s the sweetest human on the planet about it, of course,” Teigen interjected. “She doesn’t have a bad word in her body, she’s so incredible.”
“She’s very sweet and I hope she likes it,” Legend added.
Meanwhile, Dion who spoke with ET in February, about Legend and Grande’s rendition; said she’s “so proud” of what they created. Check out the video below to hear more.
