Something completely magical happened last night at Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s house. In the middle of story time, their 4-year-old son Miles just took over! He read the book to his parents leaving them completely “amazed” at his hidden talent.

“We read to miles every night and he has never read more than a dinosaur name and a word here and there,” Teigen wrote on Instagram. “But randomly decided to read us an entire book yesterday?? he’s just been keeping this hidden!? we are amazed lol.”

Amazed is an understatement — can you imagine if your 4-year-old (or 5- or 6-year-old even) just started reading for you? I’m blown away, good for him! That’s is definitely something to be proud of!

The Cravings author also shared a video of the special moment, writing, “What a wonderful first book 😭.” Miles is reading Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman, a classic children’s book of a hatchling bird trying to find his mom.

“The kitten was not his mother, the hen was not his mother, the dog was not his mother,” Miles reads. Legend interrupts him — “Oh my goodness, who was the mother?!” he asks, making Miles laugh.

He continues reading, struggling a little over the word “now,” as his dad helps him. The way he’s slowly reading and pronouncing each word makes it obvious that he is actually reading it, and didn’t just memorize his favorite book.
