John Legend and Ryan Gosling bonded over fatherhood
John Legend and Ryan Gosling bonded over fatherhood.
The ‘All of Me’ hitmaker met the 36-year-old actor on the set of ‘La La Land’ and enjoyed their discussions about what it is like becoming a father for the first time.
He said: "Amada [Gosling’s daughter] and Luna [Legend’s daughter] were both born in April. We talked about it.
"We had just announced that we were pregnant right around when we were filming the movie, so … he definitely kind of shared how joyous it is to be a new father and gave me something to look forward to."
And the 37-year-old singer admits he is a huge fan of the ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ star and relished in the chance of working alongside him.
He added to Entertainment Tonight: "That made me feel a little bit more comfortable, that he was learning something new too and had that sense of … the struggle of a new thing. I was really impressed with him playing the piano, and I thought he was doing a really good job.
"I’ve been a fan of his work as a film actor for such a long time, so I was excited to work with him. I was just hoping that he didn’t think I brought him down too much, knowing that he’s been doing this for a long time and I haven’t."
Meanwhile, John previously admitted fatherhood has inspired him to write "better" music.
He said: "I think [what’s different about it is] just growing up. Having been married for a few years, and having a baby, and all those other things, I think it just informs your perspective a bit and it makes you look at the world a little bit differently. It helped me write songs, and be inspired to write better music, I think."
