It looks like John Legend and his son Miles aren't the only ones in the family who are football fans!

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

On February 10, The Voice Coach shared the cutest snapshots of his 4-year-old poodle, Petey, playing with a toy football while adorably wearing a jersey. Looks like he's Puppy Bowl ready!

''Put Petey in, Coach 🏈,'' Legend captioned the post.

All about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's fur babies

Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have three adorable dogs: Petey the Poodle, Penny the French Bulldog, and Pearl the Basset Hound. The fur babies get along great with the couple's human babies, as Teigen posted pictures of their 1-year-old daughter Esti petting Pearl, and their 7-month-old son Wren, laying down next to Penny. 

On December 11, we got to see all three of the dogs hanging out together in the Legend-Teigen household. In the photo that Legend posted to his official Instagram page, Penny and Pearl chilled on a couch while Petey looked happily up at the camera. 


Petey is the best snuggly dog, as Legend also posted a snapshot of his 7-year-old daughter Luna, curling up with the pup in October 2023. 

Penny is the senior dog in the family, as she was adopted by the family in 2014. (Fun fact: she only has three legs!) Teigen showed off Penny to the world by sharing a lovely Instagram snapshot of Penny relaxing outside in July 2014.

Meanwhile, Petey and Pearl were both adopted in 2020. In January 2020, Teigen introduced Petey to fans when he was just a puppy. ''this little guy grabbed our heart first and will hold onto it forever!'' she captioned the Instagram post, before showing us a clip of Luna playing with the fluffball

When it comes to Pearl, Teigen gushed over the big-eared pooch on a July 2020 Instagram post

"Pearl has touched down into the legend/teigen/stephens household!" she wrote. "We love this little girl so much already but I will admit, she has definitely taken to John first!! Penny is obsessed with her so it's been fun watching the adventures of penny and pearl unfold. I grew up with Basset Hounds so I can't wait for John to see this bouncy, no-bones, jello mold of skin grow into the stubborn logs of love I love so much. Excited for this new little heart to add love to our home. Swipe for ear magic!"
