John Legend is gearing up for his performance Sunday night in NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” show by staying away from food.
Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, shared that he will have a shirtless scene during the live show, which has pushed the Grammy and Oscar winner to tighten up his diet.
“Once we started spending more time together between tour stops and all this other stuff, we realized we had such a connection—and then it blossomed into a marriage and a baby.” Because John Legend is John Legend, he proposed to Teigen during a Christmastime trip to the Maldives in 2011. The location had special significance for Teigen and Legend, because it was where Teigen once wished she would spend the rest of her life with Legend.
“Back to where it all began – Lake Como, Italy – first came here in 2007,” Teigen posted on Instagram last year, alongside an uber romantic pic of a little bridge.
So it’s been quite a journey." Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus, John Legend and Little Big Town were also among the performers on the night.
They’re just like our own stories of romance, except a lot more fancy (and often quite a bit more convoluted). The pair met on the set of Legend’s 2007 music video “Stereo,” when Teigen came in to star in the trippy, animated short film.
And for the record, it definitely was love at first sight.
After all the texting and talking, “I think that’s when I really started to know that this was the kind of person I wanted to be around a lot,” Legend told ET. “There was no big grand speech or anything, it was just very lovely and sweet,” Teigen said on the now-defunct show “FABLife.” The pair married on September 14, 2013 in Lake Como, Italy.
“Not right away,” Legend, 35, told of the process of falling in love. I wasn’t like, ‘This is the woman I’m going to marry’ from day one.
For me I’m the kind of person who needs to grow into that feeling.
But when it’s all finished, Teigen, who is expecting the couple’s second child this spring, will get back to feeding her man.
“I’m just going to force feed him, basically,” the 32-year-old supermodel quipped.
“John’s eating really healthy right now…” Teigen told People.
