Legend and Teigen are one of the couples in Hollywood that have surpassed trials together. They have been married for seven years, and they are still very much in love.
“We actually really love and respect and admire each other. I think that’s the foundation of who we are as a couple and we actually enjoy each other’s company,” Legend told Today.
He added, “My wife makes me laugh all the time. I make her laugh occasionally. Everyone knows she’s funnier than I am.”
How They Met
The model met the musician on the set of his music video for “Stereo” in 2006. The pair hooked up when the video was finished.
“We did the music video, we were together for like 12 hours,” Teigen said in an interview.
She continued, “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.”
