This isn't the only way Legend has been spending some bonding time with Esti lately. On November 23, he posted the cutest video of him entertaining Esti by singing his own take on a modern nursery rhyme. More specifically, he played the piano and sang, "Purple Monkey in a Bubblegum Tree," which is a tune featured on the kid's toy Fisher Price Kick n Play Piano Play Mat.

In the video, Legend sang to Esti while his wife, Chrissy Teigen, held her and swayed side to side. 

"Just me over here covering Esti’s play mat bops," Legend wrote on the post.

"Do we hear… a collab 👀" the Fisher Price brand commented. 

Esti also reached another major milestone this September, where in an Instagram picture that Teigen has posted, you can see that she has grown her first baby teeth!

Baby Esti is welcomed to the world 

Teigen gave birth to Esti in January 2023, and to announce the wonderful news, Legend and Teigen both took to their official Instagram pages to share the sweetest picture of two of their other children, 7-year-old Luna and 5-year-old Miles, holding the newborn and looking at her lovingly. 

“On Friday, we welcomed Esti Maxine Stephens to our family, and our house is overflowing with love and joy. I’m in awe of Chrissy’s strength and resilience and I’m so thrilled to see how Luna and Miles embrace their baby sister. I’m so, so grateful, but that doesn’t seem like a big enough word…,” Legend captioned the photo on his official Instagram page .

Esti Maxine Stephens - the house is bustling and our family could not be happier 💕 Daddy sheds nightly tears of joy seeing Luna and Miles so full of love, and I am learning you still need diapers with a c section!? We are in bliss. Thank you for all the love and well wishes - we feel it all! X,” Teigen wrote on her post.
