John Legend: Dads NEED To Be 'Active' in Diaper Duty

When it comes to John Legend he wants ALL Dads to be ‘Active’ when it comes to diaper duty.

Husband, singer, songwriter, record producer, pianist, actor and philanthropist, John Legend adds that a changing table in men’s rooms is necessary. Read on… reports that John Legend is using his own fatherhood experiences to help make a difference in the world.

The 40-year-old EGO winner (the first black man to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony), John Legend wants to help other dad’s who haven’t learned how difficult it can be to change his kids’ diapers in public restrooms.

On Monday, John Legend who shares son Miles, 13 months, and daughter Luna, 3, with wife Chrissy Teigen, teamed up with Pampers to help install 5,000 changing tables in men’s restrooms across the United States and Canada.

Legend opened up to PEOPLE about his decision to work with the brand because it was a no-brainer.

John who previously collaborated with Pampers in February explains:

It all started from an organic situation which was that Chrissy and I both shared diaper-changing duties with Luna. 

He continues:

We really started getting behind the idea of dads having diaper duty and that being a part of co-parenting.  Then Pampers and Koala Kare came together to say, ‘You know what? We’re encouraging dads to change diapers and be active parts of the parenting duties, but a lot of times, the facilities aren’t built for that to happen.’
