Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have been married now for almost a decade. However, ‘All Of’ John began loving ‘All Of’ Chrissy after she became his love interest for his music video, Stereo.

The hottest couple of the moment consists of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Two of the most popular celebrities in Hollywood’s world, who has now been married for nine years. Twelve hours was enough to fall in love with each tower, as it all began with a ‘Stereo’ on-screen romance.

Since their fairytale wedding in their special place, Lake Como, the couple has been growing their family. John and Chrissy are parents of two children and with a third on the way. However, two years ago, they announced the heartbreaking news about the loss of their baby son named Jack during Chrissy’s 20th week of pregnancy.

Celebrating their anniversary, The Focus dives into their romance starting the first time they first locked eyes.

Chrissy starred in John’s music video, Stereo

Chrissy and John met in 2006 on the set of John’s ‘Stereo’ music video. Teigen was interpreting the role of Legend’s love interest and who would’ve thought that the two would end up together?

During an interview with Wendy Williams in 2014, she said: “We did the music video, we were together for like 12 hours. We spent the entire day together, me in my underwear and him in a full suit, and I went to say goodbye to him, to his hotel and we didn’t ever say goodbye that night.”

The American model then revealed to Cosmopolitan that the two “hooked up” that night after she went back to John’s hotel room and ate In-N-Out burgers. The rest was history.

However, the first rumors came months later after the two were spotted together before the singer went out on tour. Throughout the time getting to know each other, Chrissy and John stayed in touch over the phone while the then 28-year-old played the “hard to get” card.

Although initially “marriage was never a goal” to Teigen, John seemed to have fallen in love with her. “Happy to be with him”, both saw a connection between the two as John had a few days-break in between shows, where he would be spending it with Chrissy.

As the singer sat down with Entertainment Tonight to promote his film Southside With You. Based on Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, the singer shared his experience falling in love with Teigen.

John said to not have felt “nervous about it” and was instead excited to feel “a real connection” and a future ahead with the television personality. “And I think that’s when I really started to know that this was the kind of person I wanted to be around a lot,” he revealed.

The lovebirds then broke up for 24 hours, after the musician was “bummed and stressed out”, believing that having a relationship was part of the motive. However, the two found a way back to each other the next day and have been inseparable ever since.

The special meaning behind Lake Como and ‘All Of Me’

A year after their first encounter, Chrissy and John went on their first trip together to Lake Como, Italy. Yes, that same place where the music video for the hit song All Of Me was filmed. And of course, their future wedding venue.

It was the place where Chrissy realized she wanted to spend the rest of her life with the singer, and vice versa.

After four years of dating, the singer proposed in December 2011 while vacationing in the Maldives during Christmas. Even though the two had a huge fight on their way to what later became the location of their proposal, John ditched the grand speeches and went straight in with a “lovely, sweet” marriage proposal.

Two years later, John dedicated what still is his greatest hit song ‘All Of Me’ to his then-fiancée. It came out two months after the two tied the knot in a lavish Italian wedding. The same place where it all began. The footage shows scenes in Lake Como leading up to actual scenes from their wedding day.

Growing a family and a heartbreaking miscarriage

The 36-year-old has been candid with her fans opening up about her struggles with fertility. Good news came for the couple. Chrissy announced they were expecting their first child, a baby girl named Luna Simone Stephens, who was born on April 14, 2016.

Two years later, a second child, a boy named Miles Theodore Stephens joined the family. She revealed that her second child was conceived through IVF, calling it a “complete miracle when it works”. Now at the age of four years old, the little one has been named to be a replica of his father.

Looking to expand their family, the couple announced their third pregnancy. However, the two announced the worst news to their millions of fans. Crying, a post said that the couple lost baby Jack during the 20th week of Chrissy’s pregnancy due to complications. As she shared the devastating and emotional news through her social media accounts, she described it to be the “darkest day”.

Earlier on August 2022, the famous duo announced that they were expecting another child together. After undergoing IVF treatments and “one billion shots later” in the leg, Teigen announced the happy news to her 39 million Instagram followers.
