Happy birthday, John Legend! The love-struck crooner turns 39 years old today—and what a year it has been. After welcoming his first child, with wife Chrissy Teigen, a baby girl named Luna Simone in 2016, the couple announced this fall that they're expecting baby No. 2.

We're sure Legend will be a great father to the new addition, because he's already the best dad to baby Luna. Whether he's cuddling with her on a Sunday morning, introducing her to new places and cultures, or cracking dad jokes, this star makes one legendary father. Plus, Luna has the perfect example of a loving relationship right there in her family.

"Since the day she was born, you've done every bottle with me, woken up with me to keep me company through every night. You don't mind diapers, get all the best burps, and read her Goodnight Moon like poetry," Teigen wrote in a sweet ode to Legend last year. "It makes me so happy to see so much of you in her smile and eyes that completely glow when looking at you. She will never look at anyone—anyone—the way she looks at you." Swoon.
