John Legend had an epic response to wife Chrissy Teigen’s sultry, throwback modeling photo. She shared the image that was taken in 2011 when she was a model in an Ed Hardy fashion show. John revealed that it was that day that cemented his feelings for her and how he knew he would someday make her his wife.
Chrissy uploaded the image, a close-up shot of herself at age 26, looking every inch a gorgeous young woman. Her makeup application appeared to be done with smoky eyeshadow, false lashes that extended out past her eyelids, a bronzed face with highlighted cheekbones, and a pale pink lipstick.
Her hair was braided up and away from her face. While it was unclear how the back was styled, it appeared to be lightly teased at the crown and worn long and full down her back.
John remarked that he fell in love with Chrissy that night in a comment that appeared in the thread of her post. Perhaps it was the smoky stare she gave the camera or maybe it was her overall look in the show that piqued his interest.
The Voice coach stated that 2011 was the year he proposed to Chrissy. He noted that after seeing her in the Ed Hardy show, he was convinced she was the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. Chrissy did not respond to his comment, but other fans surely did. They loved the singer’s declaration of love for his wife.
“Thank you for sharing your love, the both of you…it inspires me daily,” remarked one follower.
“You knew a good thing when you saw it!!” stated a second fan.
“I hope my wife doesn’t read this because she already loves you enough,” joked a third Instagram user.
“Ed Hardy is gone but your beautiful wife is here forever. Congratulations on your gorgeous family,” stated a fourth supporter.

a lot of people don’t know this but before this all started I was well on my way to discovering my talent for quickly-spoken words aka “rap” music. what was merely a source of entertainment for me growing up became more than just something I could listen to others do. I needed to spit for myself. The first time I got in the studio, my fingers and voice shook like a dog straight out of the bath, a sputtering car engine in a cold winter’s night. But I knew once I passed that moment of fear, the anxiety would turn into lyrics so poignant and beautiful that the world needed to hear. I used my new gift in every which way I could, sharing the sweet sounds and effortlessness even with a baby growing inside me. It was almost like the baby was lending me it’s small talent for rap as well – I was even better than before. Here is me (song written by me) performing for john before his role as Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar – a role that eventually lead to him getting the EGOT. there were no limits to what I was capable of. Maybe one day when this is all over we will meet again
The couple began their relationship after Chrissy appeared in the singer’s 2007 music video for “Stereo.” Teigen starred as Legend’s love interest in the video and later revealed that when the shoot was over, they went back to Legend’s hotel room, ate In-N-Out burgers, and she spent the night, reported Cosmopolitan. They have been together ever since.
Chrissy and John are parents to two children. The oldest is Luna Simone who was born in 2016. The couple’s son Miles is 2 years old. The model recently documented both of her children’s special days on Instagram as they quarantine at home.
