If you are a fan of John Legend’s work, then you are already familiar with his emotional love songs that have touched the souls of millions of couples around the world.
However, have you ever thought about who he dedicates his songs to? That’s right, it’s his long-term girlfriend, now wife, Chrissy Teigen.
So how did John meet his “muse”? Let’s look at the facts.
John-Roger Stephens, better known as John Legend, is an American singer, songwriter and producer who became famous for composing some of the most influential songs in the 21st century.
John started learning to play the piano at a very young age, so it wasn’t long before he discovered his love and talent for music.
After graduating, John joined BCG as a management consultant while simultaneously producing, writing and recording his own music.
Sometime in 2001, Devo Springsteen introduced John to Kanye West, who was still in the early stages of his career.
Legend released his debut album in 2004, featuring Dave Tozer, Kanye West and Will.i.Am. The album finished at number 7 on the US Billboard 200, selling over 116,000 copies in its first week.
The album was such a success that it later reached sales of over 540,000 in the US and was certified gold by the RIAA.
Some of John’s most famous songs are “All of Me”, “Love Me Now”, “You Deserve it All”, “Minefields”, and many more.
Christine Diane Teigen is an American model and television character.
Her first modeling job came when she was only 15 years old. After a string of successful performances, Teigen landed on the front cover of Sports Illustrated in 2010 and was named “Rookie of the Year”.
The fashion industry was her next prey. After her “Rookie of the year” edition, she designed and launched a capsule collection with swimwear designer DiNeila Brazil. Their work was featured at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami.
Chrissy’s portfolio doesn’t just include modeling. She is also constantly featured in various cooking shows and also works as a food stylist.
How did John and Chrissy meet?
John and Chrissy have known each other for quite some time. They met in 2006 on the set of John’s music for the song “Stereo”. It was later revealed that they clicked right away and became very good friends.
Even though the rumors claim that they didn’t start dating right away, they still hung out very often.
Many insiders say they officially started dating a few months before getting engaged in December 2011. In 2013, they finally got married in Italy.
One of John’s hit songs, “All of Me,” was written especially for Chrissy, and the music video was actually footage of their actual wedding.
Since they both said they love children, there were no surprises when they gave birth to their first child in 2016. Two years later, they welcomed another child, this time a boy.
In August 2020, the couple announced that they were expecting a third child, but unfortunately the child was stillborn due to complications.
Today they seem to have recovered from that unfortunate event and spend most of their time with their children in beautiful places around the world.
