Just three days after the birth of his son Miles Theodore Stephens, John Legend headed straight back to work at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

Left at home with their newborn son and their two-year-old daughter, Luna, Legend's wife and the Queen of Twitter, Chrissy Teigen, jokingly called out her husband and the double standards in society.

Sitting on their couch at home in Los Angeles cuddling up to Miles, she shared:

Teigen is no stranger to taking the proverbial out of her husband, society and in particular US President Donald Trump, who has blocked her on Twitter.


But it didn't take Legend, real name John Stephens, to realise what he was missing and he left shortly after his performance making it home before 9pm – in time for Teigen's "short rib night".

The model and 10-time Grammy winner welcomed Miles on May 17, with Teigen taking to Instagram to share the first image of their baby boy shortly before the awards show kicked off.

Speaking to E! on the Billboards red carpet, Legend explained how they came up with his name:

"We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens; every name we give to our kids I think will have a little bit of musical history to it. So Miles is, of course, is the same name as the great Miles Davis," he said.

Teigen has been commended for not glossing over the realities of birth and motherhood with her 17.2 million Instagram followers and 10.6 million Twitter followers, even sharing an image of her in special post-birth underwear breastfeeding her son while Luna played nearby.

In another candid Twitter post, she added that giving birth the second time around was much less painful on her body than the first.
