It’s an age-old competition between mothers and fathers to get their children to say “mama’ or “dada” first. But Chrissy Teigen is helping her hubby, John Legend, out by trying to get their son Miles to say dada.

In an adorable video posted on Instagram, John’s lookalike son is doing his best to say the word but it comes out every which way.

“YAAAAAAAAS so close!,” Chrissy captions the video. And Miles was so close. “De De De,” he said. It’s right on the tip of his tongue. No one can deny the little guy looks just like a mini version of his dad, so he should be able to master the Dada word in no time.

Chrissy also shared a video post of their soon to be 3-year-old daughter showing off her reading and speaking skills. She’s a far cry from “Dada” or “Mama.” Chrissy has her little girl reading books about Maya Angelou and Ella Fitzgerald.

Now that’s getting her off to a great start.

John and Chrissy married in Como, Italy in 2013. They share two children, a daughter, Luna, born April 2016 and a son, Miles, born May 2018.
