Chrissy Teigen is a name that has become synonymous with ‘couple goals’ and social media influence. At 35-years-old the former Sports Illustrated swimwear model has achieved an astonishingly successful part-time career as a public figure and celebrity icon alongside her famous husband John Legend.
The word “astonishing” is appropriate to describe her rise to online fame (now with over 32 million followers on Instagram) due to how apologetically honest when communicating her thoughts.
To clarify, few influencers have had to delete tens of thousands of Twitter posts over the various controversies surrounding them, but Chrissy has.
‘Ask For A Pic’
It may prove a point of interest to note that Teigen’s recent social media activity brings back a sense of nostalgia and admiration to say the least. Admittedly, not all the emotions that her latest Insta Stories arouse are appropriate to say the least, but she didn’t post them particularly to be outright provocative.
As requested by fans, Chrissy showed off several pictures that show how she met, John, her favorite modeling photo shoot, and even a touching picture of her with her daughter Luna.
The foremost sheds light on how she and John took their relationship further than merely a formal acquaintance.
How I Met Your Mother
Indeed, Chrissy met John when she was asked to be the sexy model in one of his music videos. Specifically for his song “Stereo” where she can be seen wearing little more than a skimpy bottom and top.
Semi-hilariously, when she went to his hotel room to say goodbye, they didn’t actually part ways that night, marking the start of their romantic relationship.
Although they didn’t immediately share that they were dating officially, after about four years of on and off romance, they became engaged and the rest is history.
Sports Never Looked Better Illustrated
While there remains quite a bit of controversy surrounding her appearance in John’s “Stereo” music video, Chrissy wasn’t offended to be in an undressed state in the slightest.
In fact, one only has to see her accompanying “Ask For A Pic” post to get a gander at her fully naked alongside two other models as part of the Sports Illustrated shoot at Cook Island, NZ. (The pic she posted doesn’t actually show anything explicit, though they definitely show some skin)
One of the most attractive aspects of Chrissy’s personality however, is how she has prioritized her family so much. Although she has previously claimed that she isn’t ‘traditional’, she has certainly became a role-model for many young parents and wives out there.
When giving details to Cosmopolitan several years back about how she didn’t want to pressure John for marriage early while they were dating, she had the following to say:
“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.”
