More than anything, their camaraderie and innocent friendship have inspired their admirers.
When you think about happy couples of Hollywood, the two names that could come to your mind are John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Not just because of their 12 years long companionship but also the friendship that they so effortlessly carry forward.
Now, who does not like the funny jibes that Teigen takes on her husband on social media? Doesn't it look like they are still lovers from college who are loving and play fighting all the time? From laughing together to being the proud parents of two children they have come a long way from where it started - as a fling.
After almost a decade and two kids, they look as much in love as they were on day one. Well, you might think that they must be putting in a lot of effort to keep themselves so passionate about each other and that might be the case, but from what Legend revealed, it turns out that it is the small things that you do on a daily basis for or with your partner that helps the relationship grow stronger every day.
The All of Me hitmaker dished out the one secret that keeps the spark in their relationship alive. He said that it is important to make your partner feel special and make the little efforts to keep the thrill on.
“Buy flowers every once in a while, let the person know that you’re still turned on by them,” PEOPLE magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2019 told The Times. “I’m more attracted to Chrissy now than I was 10 years ago. It’s more than just physical now. We’re a team. It makes me feel more connected to her than ever.”
Also, Teigen has made some pretty important value additions to their relationship that only cemented the foundation even more. In an old interview, Teigen revealed that she never tried to control their relationship or him, she was just happy being with him. “I let him be himself for a while,” Teigen told Cosmopolitan in 2014. “The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, ‘There’s so much more out there.’ I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal, because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.”
John Legend showed the depths of his love for Teigen when he released the song All of Me in 2013 and the entire world felt it to the core. He wrote it for his wife (then-fiance) and she did admit that she had tears in her eyes when she heard it.
“I did cry when I heard it,” she said of the track. “I’m emotional, but like I don’t really don’t cry at things like that so yeah, it was beautiful and live, it’s pretty unreal.”
