The story of how John Legend met the mother of his children is as amazing as they are a couple even now.
Crazy famous and successful doesn't even cover what musician John Legend is. Not only does he have an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony, but this sweet family man was also named the Sexiest Man Alive in 2019 by People magazine. But what makes him truly irresistible is the wonderful relationship he seems to have with his wife and two kids. A down-to-earth guy, a doting father, and a supportive husband might cover some of the qualities this musician has.
Legend met his now wife of six years, Chrissy Teigen, way back in 2007 when they worked on a music video for his song Stereo together, according to Time. The start of their love story is, in fact, as sexy as they are as a couple even now. Teigen had walked into the musician's dressing room to meet him and saw him ironing in his underwear. "I said, 'You do your own ironing!?' He said, 'Of course I do.' I gave him a hug."
While the day began with him in his underwear, it ended with both of them out of their clothes. “We did the music video, we were together for like 12 hours,” she told Wendy Williams in 2014. “We spent the entire day together, me in my underwear and him in a full suit, and I went to go say goodbye to him, to his hotel and we didn’t ever say goodbye that night.”
This passionate beginning to their story has not ended, because they make sure to stay sexy for the other. As Teigen said in 2014, she is with a man who is "totally secure in himself" and that could make the entire difference in the world. "He's not trying to be anything other than what he is. The confidence he has brings it to me," she told Cosmopolitan. His confidence also extends to their sex life too, which is fueled by "good communication and a glass of wine," she says.
"We're by no means freaky-deaky, but let's just say, we're open to things. We're very okay with PDA. When we go to a restaurant, he loves when I wear a dress, so he can do some upper-thigh rubbing. I would love to see more husbands and wives making out!" she said. She also sought his permission to know if he was comfortable divulging more secrets about their personal life to the magazine.
She opened up about the places they had sex when she said, "We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren't even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that." She added, "Mom and Dad are going to nail me for this!"
Teigen is aware of how much Legend loves and adores her. She doesn't take any of that for granted in her relationship. "I got so lucky that I met John, who propelled my career. I'm not delusional: that definitely helped... Even three years ago, I never dreamed of this life. It's unreal."
And in 2019, her man was acknowledged as sexy by the rest of the world too. Legend spoke to People magazine in 2019 when he was inducted into the "Sexiest Man Alive" category. He said, "I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure. Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!"
