You just see different sides of that person, and if you go through it and you learn from it and you come out the other end better for it, then it deepens and strengthens your relationship.” John Legend.

Luna has a sense of actual comedy. She is so much like Chrissy it’s uncanny. I guess that’s why we get along though,” says the singer. “We hang out together all the time. I love taking her to school and I’ll take her to lunch just the two of us a lot.” John Legend. Doug Inglish Meanwhile, Miles is “a little more mellow like me,” says the star. But like any toddler, “he just runs around and falls. He’s like a wrecking ball!
