We were left feeling very annoyed and pretty shocked recently, when model Chrissy Teigen was criticised for heading out to dinner shortly after giving birth to her daughter – and it seems her husband, singer John Legend, shared our frustration.


While he may be a little late to the party, the Ordinary People singer took to social media last night to share his feelings on the ‘mum-shaming’ that has become so frequent in our society.


Taking to Twitter to defend his wife, the 37-year-old wrote: “Funny there’s no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.”



As you can imagine, John’s tweet was met with virtual applause across social media, with a number of his followers praising him for drawing attention to people’s alarming double-standards towards new mothers and fathers.


The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Luna Simone, on April 14.


When criticism of Chrissy’s decision to go on a date night shortly after the birth hit social media, the new mum was not about to take it lying down, either.




Responding to the social media hate, a defiant Chrissy tweeted at the time: “I went to dinner. People are pi**ed. Good morning!...I never wanted to leave my daughter, I love her, BUT THAT’S JUST ME – the passive aggressiveness is real!”


Well done to John for standing up to the haters!


SHARE if you love this new dad’s attitude to this bizarre criticism.
