John Legend's Response to Mom-Shaming Will Make You Cheer
Parenting in the spotlight can be tough—just ask John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. The new parents, who welcomed their daughter Luna Simone in April, have been on the receiving end of criticism for their parenting techniques. While they're both in it together, Teigen bares the brunt of the Internet trolls and Legend has had enough.
The singer took to Twitter this week to defend his wife, who has been shamed for decisions like leaving their newborn at home to go on a date night with her husband and attending her friend Jessica Alba's surprise birthday party. "Funny there's no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn't have to take it all. We'll split it," he wrote on his account.

Snaps to Legend for being the coolest new dad and co-parent around.
