Not many people can say that they get to come home to the sexiest man alive…but Chrissy Teigen can, and she’s enjoying those bragging rights to the fullest!
John Legend just received the distinguished title of being named People Magazine‘s “Sexiest Man Alive.” After sitting on the secret for some time, his wife can finally celebrate with him and, of course, playfully crack jokes at the same time.
Just before the news was announced, Teigen immediately changed her bio to read, “currently sleeping with PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.” She then tweeted her EGOT winning husband’s People cover, saying her “dream of having boned the sexiest man alive” had finally been fulfilled. Hilarious!
Legend humbly tweeted that he was “perplexed” by the honor, especially following behind Idris Elba who received the title last year. To put it all in perspective, he tweeted a side by side photo of himself in 1995 next to Elba’s 2018 cover.
Teigen replied to her husband’s tweet that we hadn’t seen the 1995 version Elba, but that he was probably “still very hot.”
As for their kids Luna and Miles, their reactions to dad’s news were no so energetic.
As expected, the clap back says she cannot wait to defend her husband to anyone who thinks he’s undeserving of the “sexiest man” title.
You’ve been warned – the only ones allowed to make fun of him are his family.
Legend, 40, is the 34th man to receive the “sexiest man” title and the third judge from NBC’s The Voice to snag the honor. The singer told the magazine about his transition from being socially awkward to the man he is today. “I think you grow into being comfortable in your own skin,” he says. “Most of your teenage years, into your 20s, you’re still figuring out who you are, how you present yourself to the world…eventually I think you get more at ease with yourself. I know who I am. Maturity helps with that.”
All jokes aside, its safe to say the entire legend family could not be more proud.
