38-year-old Grammy Award winner John Legend is married to supermodel Chrissy Teigen for 4 years. The couple tied the knot on September 14, in Como, Italy, after an engagement that lasted almost two years.
It looks like the couple weighed in on every step they made into their relationship, as all steps came gradually, slowly, but surely. This, as Legend waited 4 years before proposing to Teigen, in December 2011.
As in any relationship, there were times when in doubt about going forward. For the singer, that moment came in a time when he was “stressed and busy”, as he reveals in a recent interview for The Guardian. They were having an argument and according to him, “I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.’”
Well, that reaction closed the gap between them and, at the end of the day, Legend split from Chrissy Teigen for just an hour and a half.
So what makes their relationship work, eleven years later? “She pushes me to be funnier,” The All of Me singer explains, “not because she’s trying to, I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder.”
Teigen, who is very active on social media, shared why she cut their break-up short with a definite “no!”: “It wasn’t a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like “no”.
