How They Met

This love story began in 2006 on the set of Legend's music video for "Stereo." Teigen was featured in the video; however, it wasn't until they worked together again in 2007 on the set for "Green Light" that they really hit it off. According to Teigen, she was initially a bit intimidated by Legend and didn't want to be too forward with him. However, the two eventually bonded over food and music and quickly became inseparable.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight nearly a decade ago, Legend revealed that he knew Teigen was the one for him early in their relationship. "I fell in love with her over the phone because she is good with those 140 characters on Twitter," he said. Legend and Teigen's connection was undeniable, and they continued to date and build a strong foundation for their relationship in the years that followed.

The Wedding

Legend and Teigen's wedding was a romantic and intimate affair in September 2013 in Italy. The couple chose the picturesque Villa Pizzo for their big day, featuring stunning views of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains. Teigen wore three Vera Wang dresses throughout the day, each more beautiful than the last. Legend serenaded his bride with a song he wrote especially for her. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows in front of their close family and friends.

The reception was lively, with guests dancing and enjoying delicious food and drinks under the stars. Legend and Teigen even took to the dance floor for a choreographed routine to the song "All of Me." Legend wrote that hit for Teigen and has since become a beloved classic. The wedding was a beautiful celebration of Legend and Teigen's love and commitment to each other. It remains one of the most memorable celebrity weddings of recent years.

Their Family

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are proud parents to three adorable children: Luna, Miles, and their youngest, who arrived months ago. Luna was born in 2016 and has captured the hearts of fans worldwide with her adorable personality and fashion sense. Miles arrived two years later and is just as cute as his big sister. The family often shares glimpses of their life with Miles on social media, including his first steps and his love of music.

Legend and Teigen have been open about their struggles with infertility and their use of IVF to conceive their children. They have also been candid about their experience with postpartum depression and the importance of seeking help and support. In 2020, the parents were excited about their third child. Sadly, the baby, Jack, would suffer health issues in the womb, and a medically-induced abortion was needed. John and Chrissy were open about their grief and found support in sharing their story. Joyfully, at the top of this year, the couple welcomed their "Rainbow Baby" into the world.
