John Legend Adorably Compares His Youngest Son Wren to a "Little Cabbage Patch Doll"

Obviously the Voice Coach's kid is cuter than cute.

By Elizabeth Logan

The Voice Coach John Legend is a happy dad of four. After welcoming two babies in 2023 — Esti Maxine in January and Wren Alexander in June — with wife Chrissy Teigen, his household is fuller than ever, and so is his heart.

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

Wren, whose middle name is in tribute to the surrogate who carried him, is the youngest child in the Teigen-Legend household. And he's doing his job as the baby of the family: Being super adorable. "He smiles so much. That's our favorite thing about him," Legend told People in a new interview. "He's such a smiley boy. He just lights up the room, looks like a little Cabbage Patch doll."

And the world is taking notice. Baby Wren was named People's "Cutest Baby" of 2023, taking after his Sexiest Man Alive dad in the charming looks department.

With Wren and daughter Esti arriving just five months apart, the transition from dad of two to dad of four has been quick but joyous. "They're sort of like twins...It kind of feels like that, but not," the "All of Me" singer said, adding, "Of course we have help around the house, and Chrissy's mom is here. We have a baby nurse, so obviously that's a privilege and something we don't take for granted."

Son Miles, 5, and daughter Luna, 7, certainly haven't been boxed out by the new arrivals; they recently accompanied their dad to his "office," AKA the set of The Voice. And the boys caught a Lakers game, too.

"I think one of the toughest parts was just having the older kids adjust to not being the baby anymore, especially Miles," Legend told E! News. "Miles is used to being the baby for a while. So, he had to take some time to adjust, but I think he's doing really well with it now," he continued. "I think it's actually making them more mature and they're stepping up. They're becoming more independent now. It just took a little while, but now I feel like it's really been good for them. They're more independent, more self-driven and mature."

Legend also revealed that he's got a runner on his hands. Well, a potential future runner. "[Esti] is really getting close to walking, which is pretty early," he shared in the same People interview. "She's crawling and standing herself up already and leaning on the table. She pulls herself up and it feels like she's getting really close. She'd be one of the earliest ones of our kids [to walk] if she does."
