Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Want Children Someday As Musician Tackles Racism And Segregation In ‘Southern Rites’

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend long for children someday. The supermodel, who also is a blogger and author, dreams big when it comes to the number of kids, she told People.

Also scheduled to host the Billboard Music Awards, Chrissy is set on becoming a supermom. But she hedges as to precisely when she thinks she’ll get pregnant.

“Soon!” she said vaguely when pushed to name the date. “Not super soon, but definitely. We love kids. I picture us with three or four.”

For now, though, Chrissy is happy with focusing on her husband.

“It’s sort of effortless – for now at least. People must think I’m lying when I talk about how good my husband is, but by all definitions he really is perfect.”

As the Inquisitr reported, Chrissy recently was thrilled when her husband won an award. She poked fun at herself when her subsequent “cry face” of happiness went viral.

John’s Golden Globe was for best original song, which he won with the rapper Common, for the film Selma. During his acceptance of the award, Legend got abandoned by cameras in favor of supermodel Chrissy. And Teigen, as she humorously tweeted, just had to burst into joyful sobs.

“Sorry I don’t practice my cry face okay,” she tweeted. “It’s been 5 minutes and I’m a meme.”

And while both Chrissy and John are upbeat about their relationship and the prospect of children, he’s serious when it comes to his desire to tackle racism, reported MSN.

In his HBO documentary Southern Rites, John investigates racism and segregated proms in Georgia. Legend revealed that he feels racism isn’t always easy to pinpoint, and that it’s more than using names. Instead, says the musician, it’s also inherent in the structure of some aspects of the nation.

“Some racism is very easy to identify, the Donald Sterlings of the world, the people who use the n-word in a malicious way. But a lot of racism is structural,” said John.

As examples, Legend referenced the criminal justice system and sentencing. Because he feels that that type of structural racism has what he describes as inertia, John contends that it’s essential for society to step up and actively seek to achieve change.

“All of these things…end up discounting the value of black lives.”

But John also emphasizes that he has no desire to constantly focus on racism and segregation.

“We don’t want to talk about racism all of the time. If it weren’t here, if we didn’t have to deal with it every day, we would love for it not to be the subject of conversation,” he pointed out.

“We would love not have to keep bringing this up but its killing our kids, it’s resulting in so much pain and suffering for our community so we have to bring it up.”
