John Legend has revealed a member of his family once tried to make money off the chance to eat Christmas dinner with the star.

The 'All of Me' hitmaker didn't name the person in question, but explained how one of his cousins tried to cash in on the singer's fame by attempting to sell off the opportunity to enjoy a festive meal in his company.

Asked on Twitter if he thought his family had the capacity to embarrass him with his in-laws, he responded: ''I had a cousin try to raffle off tickets to have 'Christmas Dinner with John Legend'. So, yes.''

John's comments on family come as his own brood with wife Chrissy Teigen - who he married 2013 - continues to grow with the arrival of their baby son this week.

The couple already have two-year-old daughter Luna together, and the 'Sports Illustrated' model took to social media to reveal their happy news on Wednesday (16.05.18).

Alongside baby bottle emojis, she wrote on Twitter: ''Somebody's herrrrrrre! (sic)''

The message was also retweeted by John onto his own Twitter account.

Just a few days before, Chrissy had admitted she was ''over'' being pregnant as she was just desperate to meet her son, especially as she has known from day 11 that she was pregnant as she underwent IVF treatment.

Venting her frustration on Twitter, she shared: ''Happy pregnant Chrissy is gone. meet OVER IT Chrissy. Wanna hold my boy let's do thisssssss ... It feels worse for me because with IVF you know *so* early. I mean I knew I was pregnant at 11 days in. Crazy. (sic)''

And Chrissy had previously admitted her second pregnancy has been a lot harder than the first time around.

She said: ''Your second pregnancy is harder because you have a kid already.''

Whilst John added: ''You have to divide your energy between raising a kid and carrying one as well.''
