Signs That John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Have a Truly Healthy Relationship (and the 1 Thing That Has Us Worried)
It seems like every time we look, Chrissy Teigen is posting amazing photos to her social media of herself with husband John Legend. And though their photo game screams “relationship goals,” there are also indications that they have a healthy union outside of taking great pictures together.
Here are the signs that the crooner and his supermodel wife have a truly healthy relationship — and the one thing that gives us pause (page 7).
Admitting they’re flawed
Although many fans want to say Legend and Teigen are perfect, the dynamic duo doesn’t dwell on that title. Legend told Cosmopolitan being a good father and supportive husband is what he strives for, as opposed to perfection. “I don’t want to present myself as the ‘perfect spouse,'” he said. “And I don’t want to present our relationship as the ‘perfect relationship’ because I don’t think anybody meets that definition.” Having this perspective is very healthy for their relationship.

Of course, a great sense of humor
No relationship should take itself too seriously. And if there’s one element that this marriage has, it’s an overwhelming amount of silliness. Teigen never misses an opportunity to poke some good-natured fun at her man, whether it’s on social media or in front of a rolling camera. When asked about his wife’s trolling, Legend shows great humor himself. “I love that my wife is funny,” he told BuzzFeed. “I’m not particularly funny and she puts up with me!”
Next: And when the joking stops, there is …
All kidding aside, these two clearly have each other’s backs. Legend shows support for his wife through tough times, and Teigen proudly promotes her man in his career endeavors. “You need to be present, and you need to be compassionate,” Legend told People when Teigen revealed she had postpartum depression. He said his job was to “support her and understand what she was going through and do whatever I could do to help her.”

They’re quick to squash rumors
The tabloids are always quick to try and “reveal” that a Hollywood relationship is on the rocks. But John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are having none of that. Teigen wasted no time ripping apart In Touch magazine in 2017 when it suggested her marriage was on the rocks. Clearly, this relationship is too healthy to let in that kind of toxicity.

They continue to learn things as a couple
Every relationship has a learning curve. And this celebrity couple knows it. “It’s exciting to see how we as a couple grow together and learn how to react to the challenges and the joys,” Legend told People when he discussed supporting Teigen. He also added learning through tough times has helped strengthen their marriage.
Next: Of course, one of the most obvious signs of their healthy relationship is …
They inspire each other
We’ve known this forever: Legend wrote “All of Me” and other songs about Teigen, after all! He told Cosmopolitan his wife also inspires him to be a more open individual. He revealed that “being with someone like her inspires me to be open about my emotions. She brings them out of me because she’s so open about hers.”
Next: Really, the only thing that makes us worry about their relationship is this.
Is there a reality show on the horizon?
As of right now, this is not something that is going to happen. Teigen has flat-out said she would never do a reality show with her husband. But given how many shows she has been on herself — and how many times the two have reportedly been approached about having their own — it seems like a show could still happen. Reality shows have a history of being the kiss of death for many celebrity couples, so we’re hoping this celebrity match doesn’t go that route.
