Pop legend (geddit) and all-round amazing human being, John Legend, has spoken out about the stigma surrounding fertility treatment.

Appearing on Loose Women to talk all things music and parenthood, the 37-year-old has always been extremely open about the fact that he and his wife Chrissy Teigen underwent in vitro fertilisation (otherwise known as IVF) to concieve their wonderful daughter Luna.

Revealing that it's an amazing option that couples who are finding it hard to start a family can turn to, John said:

"A lot of people struggle with fertility and they shouldn't be ashamed of it. A lot of people want to have kids and maybe can't do it the natural way.

"And this is an option that's available to a lot of people so I think people should do it if it's the right thing for them."

Both John and Chrissy have been open about the fact that they want more children in the future, with the singer stating that they will go through IVF again and again.

“Yeah, we'll do it again - we want to have three or four (kids)," he told the panel.

Chrissy previously spoke honestly about IVF in a revealing interview with Tyra Banks:

"I will say honestly John and I were having trouble. We would have had five or six kids years ago if it had happened, but my gosh it has been a process.

"We've seen fertility doctors and once you open up about those things to other people, you learn that a lot of other people in your life are seeing these people and they have this shame about it."

We look forward to many more tiny Chrissy and John's running around in the very near future...

I mean, if they're as cute as little Luna, who is officially the best/cutest fancy-dresser around:
