How did John Legend and Chrissy Teigen first meet?

Legend and Teigen are one of society’s most beloved Hollywood couples, but how did they come to be?

It was love at first sight for this happy pair. Legend and Teigen officially met for the first time on the set of one of Legend’s music videos. While shooting the video for “Stereo” Teigen was cast as Legend’s love interest. However, it doesn’t seem like Teigen had to do too much acting.

After the shoot wrapped up the two of them secretly went back to Legend’s hotel room where they ate burgers and things got physical.

Teigen admits to playing it cool after their music video rendezvous, but it was obvious there was something between the two of them.

Legend was getting ready to leave for his tour, and Teigen didn’t want to overwhelm him or try to immediately tie him down in a committed relationship. A few months later Legend and Teigen officially got together. The couple very briefly broke up, but luckily it didn’t last.

Not to mention Legend and Teigen later revealed it was a result of Legend being under intense stress and not because their relationship wasn’t working out. Naturally, Teigen still likes to tease Legend about his short lapse in judgment.  The happy couple went on to get married in 2013.

Whatever Legend and Teigen are doing, the public and fans hope they keep it up. Social media sources love sharing what the cute couple has been up to. 

What are some relationship enhancement strategies? 

In 2017 the University of Illinois shared a study that focused on “the science behind maintaining romantic relationships”. Family studies researchers analyzed the maintenance and motives behind romantic couples’ abilities to stay together.

The evidence and data indicated there are some fundamental relationship enhancement strategies that couples can practice in hopes of creating a more sound, secure, and rewarding relationship. Over time, working through conflict will become an enhancement technique for couples.

This study also sheds light on the importance of discerning individual issues from couple-based issues. It is not always easy to internally reflect, but by doing that individuals will be able to hopefully better understand the dynamic at hand. These are just a few of the data-driven suggestions that the scientific study promotes.

Love is at the heart of every relationship, but work plays a vital role in relationships as well. Legend and Teigen’s relationship is a perfect example of a loving and working relationship.
