Mom and dad’s little helpers! Many stars love to cook, and when their children are old enough, some of them love lending a hand in the kitchen.
Take John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s eldest child, Luna, for example. By the time she entered preschool, the toddler was already starting to follow in her mom’s culinary footsteps.l
“I love this girl,” the Cravings author, who is also the mother of son Miles, captioned a June 2019 Instagram photo of Luna watching her dad use a pasta maker in Italy to crank fresh noodles.
In March of the previous year, the little one helped her mom make “cornflake marshmallow and Fruity Pebble crunch cookies.”
When Teigen was Luna’s age, she was “embarrassed” by her mom Vilailuck Pepper‘s Thai cooking. “Mom’s food looked different and smelled different,” the Utah native explained in the foreword for The Pepper Thai Cookbook. “People are more accepting of Thai food now. All of our friends, they eat everything that I offer them now. … Our house smells of chilies and everything all day long.”
The Bring the Funny judge went on to write in the April 2021 book that she, Legend and their two kids “love to cook and eat together.”
Luna can “handle things spicier than most kids, especially if it’s a soup broth or something,” the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model wrote in a November 2019 blog post.
The Chrissy’s Court star added, “When I was pregnant, I ate the hottest foods imaginable. … Miles is a little more on the sensitive side when it comes to traveling to flavortown. I don’t think I’ll ever pressure them into eating spicy foods, although it would make me a little more than proud if they had a passion for it one day as big as mine.”
As for Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka’s household, their two kids are just as resourceful when it comes time to help out in the kitchen. In December 2018, the couple’s twins, Harper and Gideon, embraced the idea of a make-your-own sushi night and crafted some tasty looking rolls using salmon, tuna, avocado and more.
The How I Met Your Mother alum’s children are “very smart, savvy [and] cool,” the actor exclusively told Us Weekly in September 2021.
