John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen are expecting their first child together. The singer has now made it clear that his unborn daughter will enjoy sexual freedom as he and Chrissy do not plan to meddle with her sexual identity.

“I don’t think the idea that girls have to protected from men and that girls can’t have their own sexual identity and freedom. I don’t like that idea so I don’t even want to think like that.

“The idea that if it’s a girl, then we gotta put her in a cage, I don’t believe in that.

“You just want your kids to grow up with good values and respect themselves whether they’re a boy or a girl… they’ll probably make mistakes and hopefully they’ll learn from them,” he told E! News.

The 37-year-old singer also revealed that he and his wife are yet to come up with a specific name for the unborn child.

“We have a new name every day…we fall in love with it and then two days later we’re like no. They say sometimes you have to see the baby before you’re really sure,” he explained.

In October 2015, Chrissy Steigen and John Legend announced that they were expecting a baby girl.
