John Legend is learning to swim at 40

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

said he is having lessons as he has never been able to swim properly.

The "Ordinary people" hitmaker surprised his 12.4 million followers when he said he was off for a lesson, as he claimed he "can't really swim", reports

He wrote: "I can't really swim. Today I took my first swim lesson since I was like five. My dad learned in his 60's so I feel like I'm ahead of schedule."

A fan then joked that he was lying on his song "All of me" because of the line: "My head's under water/But I'm breathing fine."

They quipped: "So what happened when your head was under water? Did you breathe fine? Was it all a lie?!"

Legend, who has eight-month-old son and two-year-old daughter with his wife Chrissy Teigen, re-tweeted the post, and wrote: "All. Lies. Hahaha."

John is not alone in not being able to swim.

Many celebrities have revealed over the years that they either can't swim at all or have a fear of water, including Will Smith, who only learned in 2016 and said he had a fear of open water preventing him from hitting the pool.
