You already knew that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen were the cutest, but the latest viral sensation involving the couple takes that to the next level. After her husband responded himself, Teigen responded to those John Legend baby pictures in a hilarious and perfect tweet. I'm not surprised, but I'm still pleased.
After one picture of a Legend-y baby went viral, others started to share their infants with the couple and with the internet. When one person tweeted “I think the reason all these babies look like John Legend might be that John Legend looks like a baby," Legend quoted the tweet and added one word — "Exactly." They're aware that the singer has a baby face. He may in fact look like all babies.
Basically, Teigen would like an end to this meme. As much as we all like to look at cute babies on the internet, it's far too easy to find a baby that looks like John Legend. Oh, and don't even get them started on how Legend may or may not look like an animated aardvark. Here's the original tweet that started this onslaught of comparisons. Sure, I agree that this baby looks an awful lot like John Legend, but who could have predicted what happened next.
It's all in the smile, really, and it doesn't hurt that that infant's hands are on something and he looks like he's playing piano. Teigen's official response is not to the original post, necessarily. It's more about the share fest that followed. Here's what she had to say:
Leave her alone! Not all memes were meant to live forever. Let this one die, please. At some point, repeatedly calling a grown man a baby makes us a bunch of bullies — don't you think? I love a John Legend baby as much as the next person, but it's time to move on.
