How John Legend and Chrissy Teigen became America’s most powerful celebrity couple

The hottest couple on the planet right now, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are as famous for their no-holds-barred social-media presence as for their stellar careers. From IVF and depression to mothers-in-law and President Trump, no subject is off limits…

She’s a former Sports Illustrated cover girl and successful model, writer and TV personality. He’s the musician who this year achieved the elusive EGOT – winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony (the first African-American man and one of only 15 people to do so). The joint wattage of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend is dazzling, and with a combined following on Instagram just shy of 30 million (on Twitter it is 23 million), their outspoken views on everything from breastfeeding and body-shaming to US politics have huge global reach.

Even President Trump has had to take notice, but it’s fair to say he is not their biggest fan. Chrissy began trolling Trump long before he became president, prompting him to block her on Twitter last year. (The final straw was her writing ‘Lol no one likes you’ on his page, which is innocuous compared to some of the other things she has said.)

Chrissy, 32, and John, 39, met in 2006 when she starred in the video for his single ‘Stereo’. This was also the year when John won his first three Grammys. Chrissy was already an in-demand model signed to IMG (she has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Nike, Olay and Ugg). ‘We were really attracted to each other,’ he admits. ‘We started seeing each other right away.’ (She has said, more bluntly, that they ‘did it’ on their first date, after eating burgers from cult US fast food chain In-N-Out.) In September 2013, they married at the Villa d’Este hotel overlooking Lake Como, and they now have two children: Luna, two, and Miles, six months.

Chrissy has just released her second cookbook, Cravings: Hungry For More, which like her first, Cravings, contains a mix of comfort food (there’s a section devoted to potatoes and multiple recipes for cheese toasties) and healthier offerings. And John has an album out, A Legendary Christmas, featuring soulful takes on old favourites.
