John Legend's 1-Year-Old Baby Esti Running in Squeaky Shoes Is Cuteness Overload

Even Legend's wife, author-model Chrissy Teigen, couldn't handle the adorableness! 

By Elizabeth Logan

Get ready for an instant mood-booster. Chrissy Teigen, author-model and wife to The Voice Coach John Legend, just shared the most adorable clip of her youngest daughter, Esti Maxine Stephens, running through her home in tiny sneakers. They even make a squeaking sound as the toddler moves, and appear to have unicorns on them. So cute!

How to Watch

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's baby girl Esti loves her squeaky shoes! 

"NOOOOO I CANT TAKE IT I LOVE SQUEAK SHOESSSSSS," wrote Teigen in the caption, summing up the feelings of anyone who watches the clip. It's clear that Esti is a girl on the go, confidently making her way across the room without any help, a proud grin plastered across her face. At just 14 months old, she's already got places to be!

Just a month prior, the toddler was still learning how to walk. "She's walkin," The Voice Coach wrote under a clip of his girl taking a few steps before (gracefully) falling down. And she was smiling the whole time.

Clearly, Esti is the giggler of the family. She threw her pacifier onto the ground from her high chair and let out a laugh, smiled wide on the swing set, and even smirked after destroying a vase right in front of her mother.

"My reflex time; with Luna I would've caught that in a second. This one? I just let it happen," Teigen told The Voice alum Kelly Clarkson of the incident.

"Yeah. That's having more than one kid," said Clarkson. Teigen added, "The worst was how proud she was after. Usually they cry or something, [but] she's our tough cookie."
