Last month, singer John Legend welcomed his third child, daughter Esti Maxine, with his wife Chrissy Teigen.
The couple already have two young ones - Luna Simone (six) and Miles Theodore (4).
Esti's birth was a little bit complicated for Legend and Teigen, with the mum having to go through a C-section to welcome her newborn.
So, while she is recovering from that, Legend is trying to do as much as he can to help take care of the baby.
And let's not forget there is also a four-year-old and a six-year-old who will need a lot of attention, too.
Speaking to People, Legend has shared the heartwarming way he gives his wife a bit of a break from the duties of caring for a newborn.
He said: "Obviously I can't breastfeed her, so I help feed when we use the bottle.
"I'm happy to change diapers. I'm good at burping her, too."
Another thing we all know that Legend is good at is singing, something he has already started doing with Esti.
"I just started singing to her a little bit," Legend said.
"Chrissy's good at lullabies, too. I try to help as much as I can, you know, to give Chrissy a break."
The singer touched on how his wife is doing since the C-section, adding: "It's a recovery process."
Also in the interview, Legend added that the couple's two older children are loving being older siblings to little Esti.
"Our older kids are really into being older siblings, which we weren't sure about," he said.
"It seemed like they might be jealous when Chrissy was pregnant.
"But since Esti's been born, they've been really loving and wanting to hold her and feed her — just wanting to be good siblings."
Legend announced the arrival of his newborn on Instagram in January, accompanying a heartwarming caption with an equally heartwarming picture of Luna Simone and Miles Theodore holding Esti.
In the post, he wrote: "On Friday, we welcomed Esti Maxine Stephens to our family, and our house is overflowing with love and joy.
"I’m in awe of Chrissy’s strength and resilience and I’m so thrilled to see how Luna and Miles embrace their baby sister. I’m so, so grateful, but that doesn’t seem like a big enough word…"
