The Meaning Behind John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's Son's Name Is Pretty Special
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their second child, a baby boy, on May 16 and have already revealed what he looks like. In addition to sharing a sweet photo of his little face on Instagram, Chrissy revealed in her caption that his name is Miles Theodore Stephens. Thanks to his famous daddy, we now know the meaning behind his moniker.
"We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens; every name we give to our kids I think will have a little bit of musical history to it. So Miles is, of course, is the same name as the great Miles Davis," John told E! News at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. "Chrissy really liked the name Theodore, so we put it all together as Miles Theodore Stephens. When he came out and we hung out with him for a little while we were like, 'Yeah, he looks like a Miles.'"
Miles Davis was a famous African-American jazz trumpeter who is considered one of the most influential figures in jazz and 20th century music history. John also revealed how he's helping his wife around the house, noting that he pitches in "with the cooking" and that he helps "with whatever else I can help with."
