Though she’s undoubtedly the spitting image of her 10-time Grammy award-winning dad, John Legend, it seems little Luna takes after her mother’s witty personality.

When Us Weekly asked who her one-year-old more closely resembles, Chrissy Teigen was quick to reply, “Me! She’s sassy. We team up against John. He likes that she’s a strong young girl."

Speaking to her daughter’s character, the model continued: “She’s also very sweet and caring. If she sees somebody hurt, she’s the first to run over.”

The family are currently travelling the world as John sings his way through a 53-date tour. But while many new parents wouldn’t think of globetrotting with a toddler, Chrissy says there’s no way they’d part ways.

“We never thought of not bringing her with us,” the 31-year-old says. She goes on to reveal that they book an AirBnb for each city, to ensure they can emulate as normal of a life as possible.

But travelling with a bub is not without its challenges, and Luna’s biggest, Chrissy says, is flying.

“On the way [to Bali], I was going to have a panic attack. Before I had kids, I was hyper-aware of them crying. So I feel like I know when it’s too loud. I get up and apologise.

“But kids are going to be kids. They’re going to scream. I’m never going to be the parent pretending my kid is not doing that.”

Though welcoming a second child while touring the world would indeed be a challenge, giving Luna a sibling is something both her and John hope to do in the future.

“I would definitely adopt or have foster children,” she recently revealed to Marie Claire in an intimate interview.

“But I loved being pregnant. Maybe I should be scared [of having postpartum depression again], but I don’t know. It couldn’t be any worse than it was – could it?”

Of course, Chrissy – who finally conceived Luna via IVF after struggling for years with fertility issues – has always been an open book when it came to her battle with post-partum depression.

“I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy. What basically everyone around me — but me — knew up until December was this: I have postpartum depression,” she wrote in an emotional essay for Glamour last year.

“I love John and Luna more than I can imagine loving anything, and John and I still hope to give Luna a few siblings,” she added.
