Bad news, everyone. World-renowned singer John Legend developed a rare reverse-aging disease and now occupies the body of a tiny baby.

Wife Chrissy Teigen is attempting to pass him off as the regular John by dressing him in a tux and taking photos for her Twitter and… hold on.


OK, let’s start over. Great news, everyone! John and Chrissy’s adorable 7-month-old son Miles Theodore looks exactly just like his father in these photos of him wearing a baby tux. Everything is OK and adorable and cute.

Chrissy posted the photos in question on Saturday, when the family was preparing to celebrate John’s 40th birthday.

Chrissy enlisted her many Twitter followers’ help with dressing Miles up. The options? Adorable Baby Tux No. 1 or Adorable Baby Tux No. 2.

While it is too late to actually take the poll, you can enjoy the photos and marvel at how identical Miles and John look.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their youngest child and first son, Miles Theodore, back in May 2018.

Much like their eldest — Luna, 2 — Miles captured hearts immediately.

In late December, John celebrated his birthday. Though Chrissy wrote him a very sweet birthday post, the family hadn’t had a chance to properly celebrate until last weekend, when she threw him a Bond-themed birthday party.

John was turning 40, which left some fans confused when Chrissy later posted two photos of an apparently baby-sized John in a tuxedo.

She even called him “Mini-John” in the caption!

“okay guys. throwing john’s 40th birthday party tonight but need your help dressing mini-john. Which one!” Chrissy wrote.

And fans delivered. They immediately chimed in with their own preference between the classic, traditional black tux and the fancy white tux.


Also, some refused to choose. Obviously Mini-John should wear both tuxes at some point, because he’s a baby and he could probably use a costume change.

Mostly, though, people couldn’t get over the fact that this baby looks exactly like John and it’s confusing.

One fan suggested that Miles and John dress differently enough that people won’t literally mix them up at the party.


Like, I know this isn’t John, but IS THIS NOT JOHN?

What is going on here? John Button?!

Some fans wondered: They did say he’s turning 40, right? So why is Chrissy still dressing him? So many questions.


But no, that’s baby Miles, 7 months old and all grown up. Unbelievable, I know.

Eventually, Chrissy got her followers back on track with the important matter at hand – picking a tux.

She set up a poll that her followers could use to vote on their favorite, and the white tux won by a landslide! Fascinating.

The family had a lovely time celebrating. So lovely, in fact, that Chrissy had a hard time making it to the Critics’ Choice Awards the next day.

“why oh why god did I agree to the people or critics choice whatever it is the night after John’s party this was a big mistake huge yes this is a fancy problem,” she tweeted.

And speaking of eerie time travel and reverse-aging diseases, Chrissy also tweeted her own version of the “2009 vs. 2019” photo comparison that every single person on social media has been doing lately.

She noted that John LOOKS THE EXACT SAME as he did 10 years ago.

And you can see the same by comparing the above photo to the one below.

Chrissy has changed, but John hasn’t.

Something fishy is going on here, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it one day, John Button or Miles Button or whatever your name is!
