John Legend is a proud father of three. 

The 'All of Me' hitmaker recently caught up with E! News to talk about how his family has been dealing with the arrival of the new baby. Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, welcomed baby girl, Esti Maxine, on Friday, January 13. 

The 44-year-old says having Esti as part of the family has been nothing but pure joy! 

He says his older children, Luna Simone (6) and Miles Theodor (4), absolutely adore their little sister. 

"The kids are excited. We went sure how they would take it. I felt like they were a little jealous when mommy was pregnant, but as soon as Esti arrived, they are just exploding with love and joy and they are so caring and loving toward her," said John.

He added that the kids can't get enough of Esti. 

"They want to hold her, they want to kiss her," he said, adding that "it's really exciting."

In some instances, children can feel neglected when a new baby arrives. The singer says he has been dealing with this challenge by continuing to give his older children time.  

"You want to give them enough attention and time and let them know that this new baby isn't going to take all of our love away from them. But what we found is that it just added more love to the house," he said. 

On Valentine's Day, John shared a family photo on his Instagram before revealing that he had the best Valentine's Day ever.
