Everyone's favorite awe-inducing couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have shared every little detail of their pregnancy with the world making us love them more than we did when Teigen cried after Legend won his first Golden Globe.The latest bit of information Legend is dishing is making us love the All of Me Singer that much more. He and Teigen are expecting their first child — a baby girl! — in the next few months, and the first-time parents have been opening up about what type of parents they want to be.

"I'm not going to be one of those people that's like 'my boy can do anything he wants and then my girl's got to you know, be in the convent,'" the singer told Entertainment Tonight. "I think you just want to raise your boys and your girls to be smart and confident and self-aware and, just good people."

With parents like Legend and Teigen, this little baby is going to be plenty confident. Have you ever seen someone show off her new pregnancy curves or cooking concoctions with the confidence of Teigen? We didn't think so.

Although Legend admits he doesn't know how to change a diaper just yet, he'll definitely be getting plenty of practice. He also revealed that they don't have a baby name picked out either. "We have a new name every day," Legend confessed to E! News. "We fall in love with it and then two days later we're like no. They say sometimes you have to see the baby before you're really sure." With the couple's trio of pups — Puddy, Pippa, Penny — all donning a "P" moniker, the Grammy winner was adamant that he and Teigen would be staying away from all "P" names.

Between Teigen's show FabLife, Legend's new project with Axe Collective (where he'll be mentoring musicians and giving one lucky artisit the chance to be featured at South by Southwest Music Festival or the Toronto Film Festival), and the couple remodeling their $14 million mansion (that used to belong to Rihanna!), we have no idea how this couple would even have time to think up baby names! Their little one is arriving in a few months and according to Legend, the house is a bit of a construction zone. "We're trying to get the house ready before the baby gets here, but I don't know if we're going to get done in time," Legend told Entertainment Tonight.
