The duo met in 2006 on the set of Legend’s “Stereo” music video. Though they parted ways after the shoot, Teigen told Cosmopolitan in June 2014 that they “hooked up” that night. Over the next year, the couple kept in touch, but Legend would often be seen on red carpets and at events with other women.
“I let him be himself for a while,” the Cravings cookbook author told Cosmopolitan. “The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, ‘There’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time.’ Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.”
Eventually, the pair tied the knot in Lake Como, Italy, in 2013.
They welcomed daughter Luna in April 2016 and son Miles in May 2018. After suffering a pregnancy loss in September 2020, Teigen announced in August 2022 that she is expecting another child. Daughter Esti Maxine was born in January 2023, five months before son Wren Alexander arrived via surrogate.
