The Love Story of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Who Just Announced the Pregnancy of Their Rainbow Baby

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are the perfect examples of best friends who fall in love. Since the beginning of their relationship, these 2 have never been apart. This has led to a strong love and a happy family of 4.

Bright Side feels that this couple’s story is one of the most intriguing. So we decided to investigate more about Legend and Teigen’s love experience.

They met while filming a music video together.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen first met on the set of his music video for Stereo, where they hit it off right away, in which she starred as Legend’s" love interest. Chrissy said, “We did the music video — we were together for 12 hours.”

Then they spent the whole day together at the hotel until they had to say goodbye, but couldn’t. However, they didn’t officially start dating until a few months later. Shortly after their first meeting, Legend went on tour.

They remained in contact the following year but did not define their relationship.

Legend went on tour shortly after meeting to promote his most recent album, Once Again. Teigen added that they texted and chatted on the phone the next year as she attempted to manage her jealousy. “I let him be himself for a while,” she stated. "The terrible thing you can do is try to lock someone like that up early on and make them think, ’There’s so much more out there.’’

Chrissy wanted to play it cool for a while and never asked questions about their relationship’s terms. She had never wanted to get married, since she had never been conventional. However, she was happy to be with him. As for John, he fell in love with her at the very right moment. He said, ’’We were texting a lot, and I started to see her sense of humor.’’

“Once we started spending more time together between tour stops and all this other stuff, we realized we had such a connection,” he continued. John wasn’t nervous about his relationship with her. He said, “When you feel a real connection to somebody, for me, it wasn’t nerves — it was more like excitement. ’Oh, this could be great.’”

In 2007, they broke up for a short time, but John says it was even faster than that. He was feeling bummed and stressed out. He was like, ’"I can’t be in a relationship right now," Chrissy said in an interview. He says now that it was the stress of possibly having to cancel a show and the fact that he had never been in a real relationship.

Their first vacation to Italy as a couple

Teigen says that the couple’s first trip together was to Lake Como in Italy, where they got married and where the All of Me music video was shot. During that trip, she realized she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Legend.

“Back to where it all began — Lake Como, Italy — first came here in 2007,” she captioned a July 2016 Instagram post. “A boat tour guide took us to a little spot on the lake and told us to make a wish. I asked for this to be the man I marry and have children with. I think John asked for the most perfect bite of cacio e pepe. Both came true, and here we are.”

Best friends and lovers became a family.

Chrissy and John’s wedding was on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como. But they legally married at a courthouse in New York City a day before going to Italy. “We got married after going to a couple of Fashion Week shows at Vera Wang, ironically, who actually did my dress, but we got married at the courthouse right after,” Teigen said.

“We are dumb and didn’t realize that our Italian wedding would not be recognized unless we had a real ceremony in New York City.” So the couple recorded All Of Me, which incorporates footage from their wedding day and an intimate look at their relationship. Chrissy says she realized the song was about her because of the opening line: ’’’What would I do without your smart mouth,’ so if that’s not about me, I don’t know what is.’’

“I did cry when I heard it. I’m emotional, but like I don’t really cry at things like that, so yeah, it was beautiful. And live, it’s pretty unreal.”

Their first child was born in 2015.

In an interview, Chrissy described her love for children and stated, “We want a lot of kids,” “I would love to have 3 or 4 of my own, and then adopt a few. So basically, I’ll be pregnant the rest of my life.”
Chrissy revealed that she and John were expecting their first child on October 12, 2015, after discussing their challenges with infertility during an interview.

Later, the couple talked about why they chose to use in vitro fertilization (IVF). Teigen said that when their first round of IVF didn’t work, it was “devastating.” (Luna was chosen in the second round.) “It’s a complete miracle when it works. There are so many people that still struggle, even with access to IVF,” she said.

On April 14, 2016, Teigen gave birth to their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens. “She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy,” she wrote. Teigen has since talked about how hard it was for them to adjust to being a family of 3 and how she struggled with depression after giving birth.

Teigen wrote in a personal essay that she still felt unfulfilled after having Luna and working on Lip Sync Battle, where her “job, basically, is to have the best time possible.” “I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy,” Teigen wrote. In addition, she described how John helped and supported them during the difficult times and their hopes for a bigger family.

On May 17, 2018 Chrissy gave birth to their second child.

Teigen announced she was pregnant with her and Legend’s second child with a lovely Instagram video in which Luna informed the world of the pregnancy. Later, Chrissy disclosed that they were expecting a boy, since the sole remaining embryo from their IVF process was a male egg.

Chrissy and John want to have more children.

In John’s music video for Wild, Chrissy and John said they are having their third child. At the end of the video, we see the famous parents playing with their 2 kids, and then we see a shot of the couple holding Chrissy’s suspected baby bump!

But the good news didn’t last long after Chrissy was put on bed rest and then taken to the hospital. She revealed to everyone that she had a miscarriage because of problems with the pregnancy.

Chrissy is pregnant with their fourth child.

2 years after their loss, Teigen told the world that she and Legend had lost their third child, Jack, in a tragic accident. Since then, she’s been open about the IVF treatments she’s had to get pregnant again. Her honesty has helped break down stereotypes about infertility and give others the strength they need to get pregnant.

The model and singer posted on Instagram that they are expecting their fourth child together. She wrote that joy has “filled our home and hearts again.” She couldn’t be happier when leaving the doctor’s appointment, knowing everything was flawless and gorgeous, plus the hope that her dream has come true.

They do not allow their hectic schedules to separate them.


Everything is possible with genuine love. John also shared that the secret to a long marriage with his wife is communication, saying, “Being considerate, listening to your partner, and making sure their needs are met, also using therapy if needed.” As a result, they grow and learn from each other.

He also took the opportunity to express his contentment with Chrissy and to reassure her that “any of the differences we have or arguments are just so minor and minuscule compared to all the great times we’ve had together,” adding that they have a “great life together and are so happy with what they’ve built.”

How did you meet your partner? How can a couple stay together for a long time?
