The 37-year-old musician and his wife Chrissy Teigen have been parents to their baby daughter Luna for six months, and the 'All of Me' hitmaker says the trick to making things work is to "go out of your way" to make each other happy.

He said: "You just have to try and be with each other as much as you can, cherish every moment. Enjoy each moment. Go out of your way, do fun things together as a couple and as a family. And we try to do as much of that as we can while still working and you know maintaining our careers."

And for little Luna, the couple - who married in 2013 - aim to make "every day" easy for her, as they want to keep her "stress-free and joyous".

The 'Love Me Now' singer added: "We just try and make every day as great as we can for her, help her grow into the kind of human we want her to be, and try and make every moment as stress-free and joyous for her as possible."

With his daughter at the age where she may start forming her first words, the 'Tonight' musician says he is "excited", and even though she's likely to say "dada" before she says "mama", he doesn't view it as a competition.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', the musician said: "It is really difficult for them to form the 'm' as easily as they form the 'd,' so I am not really making it seem like it is some kind of victory for me that she can say the easier thing, but either way I will just be excited when she starts talking."
