John Legend arrives at the 24th annual Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica on Jan. 13, 2019.

John Legend is stepping into the deep end of the swimming pool.

The singer tweeted on Tuesday (Jan. 29) that he doesn't know how to swim, so he's taking his second swimming lesson at age 40. His first was when he was "like 5." Although, he does feel like he's "ahead of schedule," since his dad learned to swim in his 60s.  

Fans flooded Twitter with surprise and a bit of light ridicule, one of which wondered if he's learning with his 2-year-old daughter Luna and 8-month-old son Miles. "They already started months ago!” he replied.

Another fan referenced lyrics from his smash hit "All Of Me." “So what happened when your head was under water? Did you breathe fine? Was it all a lie?!” she jokingly asked, to which Legend revealed, "All. Lies. Hahaha"
