John Legend couldn't be more dapper in his latest fashion spread. In a slew of swanky looks for Mr Porter, the star posed in designs from Saint Laurent, Gucci, and Tom Ford: solidifying him as one of the best dressed and most fashionable men in Hollywood.

But the crooner's interview was just as good as the ensembles. "It was a little onesie," Legend revealed of the gift that daughter Luna received from President Obama. "[He] signed a card for her. That was pretty cool."

The "Glory" singer and songwriter confessed that winning an Oscar for the song last year was one of the biggest moments in his life. "It was just so moving. Seeing all the audience in tears, seeing the reaction of people around the world, and then having a chance to say something about an issue that I care about. Doesn't get any more special than that." And a few months after that momentous event, he and wife Chrissy Teigen learned that they were expecting their first child. It was an instant source of inspiration for the Grammy Award winner. "As soon as we found out we were pregnant, I started writing songs about what it felt like to be a new father. I already was so inspired, before I even saw Luna." How sweet!

Legend opened up about his and Teigen's struggles with conceiving and that they had to choose IVF. "We figured eventually we'd have to go into the doctor and see why it wasn't happening naturally," he divulged. "You know, sometimes it's just harder for some people than for others. We're just happy that we were able to do it with our doctor. He's never really told us that there was something specific that he could identify was the reason why it just didn't work out naturally. We did what we had to do." And this probably won't be the last time he speaks about the subject. "For the record I am always happy and open to speak on infertility. The more casual the better. I don't mind!"

We're also happy to report that the couple want more children. "We want to have a few more hopefully," said Legend in the interview. "Three or four. We'll play it by ear though." We can't wait! And it looks like that may be happening sooner rather than later. "I want to work less now, you know?" he exclaimed. "I want to be home more, and be able to just help my wife with whatever she needs. Also, just be there to experience [Luna] growing up. I want to take them on tour. I want to be around."

Legend's next endeavor? It's a few years off, but there may be a presidential run coming up. "It would be entertaining," he acknowledged. Guess we're all looking forward to 2020!
