Today is a legendary one for the Stephens family!

John Legend turned 40 years old today and his hilarious wife Chrissy Teigen was eager to wish him happy birthday with two adorable slideshows from the past few years, one dedicated to their son Miles Theodore, 7 months, and another for their daughter, Luna Simone, 2½.

The sweet moments she shared range from her EGOT-winning hubby dressed to the nines and holding a cocktail to cuddle time on the couch with his kids.

“Happy 40th birthday to the most incredible man,” the former model, 33, captioned the first post. “The best father, hardest worker, best lover, best friend I could ever imagine. Every day I am grateful for how much you love us and how much you both say it and show it. You are one of a kind. I am grateful to your family for creating and raising such a pure, sweet, brilliant man. The world has been blessed by your 40 years on this planet.”

To conclude, she cheekily quipped: “I love you. I showed you that this morning BOOYAHHHH”

Naturally, the couple had a hilarious back-and-forth in the comments of the post.

“Booyah,” the birthday boy replied to the cookbook author’s sex joke, and she promptly wrote back, “Gonna return this la perla,” a reference to the popular lingerie company.

Fellow celebs were quick to show their support of the “All of Me” singer on his important milestone.

“Happy Birthday John we love you!!” wrote Kris Jenner alongside three heart emojis.

Comedian Neal Brennan deadpanned, “John is great. I would tell you if he wasn’t. He’s great. Stay with him until the kids graduate high school.”
