A few years ago, a baby who looked just like John Legend went viral enough that its photo even got to Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen. Teigen was tickled by the cute baby who really did look just like her husband, but apparently that one “John Baby” was just the tip of the iceberg. This week another baby showed up looking just like Legend, and now Teigen says she’s getting inundated with photos of babies that people think look like John Legend.
I can imagine worse things than people sending me cute baby pictures, but it looks like Teigen is getting more than she can handle.
The first known John Legend baby was spotted in 2014, but there were probably many before that. (Actually, wouldn’t the first known John Legend baby be John Legend himself, as a baby? That’s a matter for the philosophers.)
This week, however, a Twitter user going by Menzi tweeted a photo of a baby that looks a whole lot like John Legend, and everyone loved it.
This baby really does look just like John Legend.

“Explain fam,” Menzi wrote, tagging John Legend.
That photo was liked more than 47,000 times and retweeted nearly 20,000 times, and then other parents started getting in on the fun, tweeting their own John Legend lookalike infants.
Most of the other babies don’t look that much like John Legend, but they’re still cute.

A lot of people have been sending their baby photos to Teigen, likely in hopes of a retweet, and finally Teigen was like, “OMG, all babies look like John because John looks liked a baby. Please stop sending me John babies!”
For the LAST TIME, JOHN looks like a baby so A LOT OF BABIES LOOK LIKE HIM STOP SENDING ME JOHN BABIES

I wonder if Winston Churchill’s wife had to deal with this. “Look! My baby looks just like your husband.”
John Legend agrees with the “Babies look like John Legend because John Legend looks like a baby hypothesis.”

Teigen might have gotten her fill of having people send her photos of babies that look more or less like John Legend. I, however, will never stop thinking they are cute. So you can keep right on sending them my way, because they are adorable.
