John Legend feels humbled

John Legend says fatherhood has "humbled" him.

The 'All Of Me' hitmaker and his wife Chrissy Teigen welcomed their daughter Luna into the world in April and he has seen his priorities shift since his wife gave birth.

He told the new issue of Notion magazine: "I think it shifts your priorities a bit, gives you a new perspective. You realise what's important for you, for your family and for your career. It just takes over your life when you have a child ...

"I spent a lot of time at home with her for the first three months and with my wife, you know, it just humbles you. I think everyone struggles with being a new parent, everyone's trying to figure it out and I think it's a humbling process."

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old singer previously admitted he is full of "pretty powerful emotions" since Luna arrived.

He said: "You never know what it's going to feel like until it happens, but you know, I was excited. And this wasn't an accident, this was something that we have been working on and [we've been] trying to have a family for a while.

"Knowing that it was so important to us, I was pretty excited from the beginning, but once she came out and she was actually a real thing that we could hug and love and see her develop, it's pretty powerful. It is a pretty powerful emotion to see the product of your love right there in front of you.

"You will see in here the influence on the next album of me having a kid. I couldn't help but write about her. I was writing songs about her before she was born, just because I was so inspired [about] just the fact that Chrissy got pregnant. So, I think it inspired one of the most beautiful songs in the album, and so hopefully that people will love it."
