Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are happily married, but that hasn’t stopped them from trolling the hell out of each other on social media. OK, for the most part it’s one-sided (pretty sure we all know who’s the troller and who’s the trollee of that relationship) but it’s always in good fun.
It wasn’t too long ago that Chrissy called out John’s “Instagram husband” skills — or lack thereof. Teigen described herself as “the designated photo taker and keeper” of her family yet no one (cough, cough, John) is ever thoughtful enough to return the favour and capture decent photos of her. But Teigen admitted that was the life she chose, and it’s her cross to bear. John responded with his usual restraint, but then later posted two more pics, this time purposely not the prettiest of the bunch.
So when Teigen deigns to write something nice about Legend, one can’t help but be a tad suspicious. But there was nothing funny about Chrissy’s words on Sunday. That’s right, it seems that when it comes to her husband, Teigen can be nice. Of course, it was in response to John confirming what many of us already suspected — that not only is he one of the most patient and understanding men on the planet, he’s also one of the best husbands you could ask for. But not just that, Chrissy is also totally worth going above and beyond for — which John certainly did. Teigen revealed on Sunday that she hasn’t been feeling like herself as of late, and Legend was aware. The couple were apart (she was in Los Angeles, he was in London) but instead of flying to Washington D.C. like he had planned, John instead caught a flight home to be with Chrissy — to watch Love Island U.K. with her. It was a move straight out of a movie and Teigen took to Twitter to boast about her hubs.
I do not normally brag about john, as it is my schtick to make fun of him always, but he flew from London to LA instead of London to DC to have dinner with me and watch love island UK because I haven’t been feeling like myself lately. Just a few hours but it meant a lot. Thank u

“I do not normally brag about john, as it is my schtick to make fun of him always, but he flew from London to LA instead of London to DC to have dinner with me and watch love island UK because I haven’t been feeling like myself lately,” she tweeted. “Just a few hours but it meant a lot. Thank u.”
She added that he also had to fly on his least favourite airline to get to her, proving just how much he loves her. Twitter user Heather Frank, whose handle is @MissInformation, asked Chrissy if she’s been “crying more than usual,” because she also finds herself “tearing up over every sweet thing, every kind word, every story with a happy ending. It as though I am feeling the loss of goodness, even though it hasn’t completely ebbed away.” The model and TV host took it to heart, admitting she felt exactly the same way.
“I have tears in my eyes all day, ready to go,” adding that @MissInformation’s tweet summed up her feelings pretty perfectly and reassured her that “it will get better.” John saw the exchange and clinched the title of World’s Best Husband with his final tweet of the night.
I love you my baby. See you tonight

Love may be dead for some, but not for these two. Chrissy and John have been together since 2007. The EGOT winner proposed in 2011 and they were married in Italy two years later. They share two children, daughter Luna, 3, and son Miles, 1. The whole crew became Vanity Fair cover models this month, with a gorgeous family photo gracing the magazine’s December 2019 issue.

@JohnLegend’s an optimist with an EGOT. @ChrissyTeigen’s an author and social media savant who struggles with anxiety, but isn’t afraid of the president and “a bunch of bigots.” Together, they’re helping to mainstream dissent.
