Proof they're just ordinary people

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are one of the most open couples in Hollywood. Whether Chrissy is candidly discussing the weirdest plastic surgery she's ever had, or John is opening up about how the couple dealt with post-natal depression, they are constantly giving their fans an insight into their lives and their relationship.

But while they might be hailed as the cutest A-list couple in Tinseltown, there was a time when John and Chrissy's future looked a bit murky. In a recent interview with The Guardian, John admitted that during a stressful period of his career he had tried to end things with his now-wife, but she was having none of it.

'I was really stressed and busy,' he said. 'I was just like: "I'd just be happier single right now." And she was like: "No."'

Apparently, the attempted break-up lasted just half an hour. The couple have now been married for four years and share their beautiful 1-year-old daughter, Luna.

Queen of Twitter Chrissy responded to the story by writing: '11 years later baby.'

She then went on to poke fun at her husband for trying to end things with her early on in their relationship, tweeting: 'It wasn't a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like, "No."'

The couple met in 2007 when model Chrissy was cast as John's romantic interest and dance partner in the music video for his song, Stereo.

John went on to speak about the moment they met, telling the publication: 'We spent the whole day dancing together, grinding together,' he revealed. 'And, uh, we made a music video.'

We're so glad these two worked it out. Can you imagine a world without Chrissy and John teasing each other on Twitter? Us neither.
