On Father’s Day John Legend read aloud and shared a sweet letter on social media for his children which he prompted other fathers out there to do the same and post their own letters about their children in an aim to #ShareTheLove on Father’s Day with Pampers.
In the post shared on social media, John starts off by saying, “Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there. Now, I’ve been thinking, this day is about us dads of course, but it’s also about the ones who made us dads, our kids.”
John continues to read out his sweet letter for his children and nominates Sterling Shepard to also post his own letter about his children –

You’re up @sterlingshepard! #PampersPartner
On Sunday, June 21st, John Legend hosted a one-hour Father’s day special titled John Legend and Family: A Bigger Love Father’s Day. The show included his wife Chrissy Teigen and their two children, Luna, aged 4, and Miles, aged 2.
Chrissy Teigen surprised her husband with a very special ‘award’, having taken her husbands’ Oscar for his song “Glory” with Common, which featured in the film Selma. The award was attached with a hot pink post-it note in front of the engraved plaque which read “World’s Good Dad”, which made John feel very special.
John Legend shared and performed a number of his hits which included his classic “All Of Me”. He also performed songs from his new album Bigger Love which was released on June 19th. As the title of the album indicates the new album is full of romantic songs, inspired by his 12-year relationship with his wife.
“Chrissy and I, our relationship has always been strong and robust,” John previously said in a release about the album. “A lot of these songs are about celebrating love, remembering moments you may miss right now,” John added.
John Legend had many other celebrities join the special for Father’s Day, including Stevie Wonder, Marlon Wayans, Scottie Pippen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and many others.
We can definitely say that John Legend made Father’s Day a special one and reminded us that the real reason we celebrate it is because of the children that are brought into the world that change their parents’ lives.
