John Legend Flew an Extra 1,750 Miles to Be With Wife Chrissy Teigen for a Just a Few Hours, and Awwww

If you follow model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen on social media, you’ll know she loves roasting her husband, musician John Legend. She’s done everything from posting an embarrassing throwback of him to sharing a screenshot of what a hacker did to his Twitter page. The list goes on and on.

That’s why we were taken aback in the best way possible when Chrissy Teigen shared the following tweet about what John recently did for her.

That means the Emmy-, Grammy, Oscar- and Tony-award winner flew an extra 1,750 miles, just so he could be with his wife, have dinner with her and indulge in some episodes of a British reality show together. What a grand gesture of love.

To make things even sweeter, he had to fly “on his least favorite airline,” Chrissy mentioned in another tweet.

Is there anything purer in this world?

We don’t think so.

On Twitter, many praised John for what he did and called Chrissy “lucky” to have such a great husband. “That is exactly what marriage should be like. Blessings to you and your family,” wrote one user.

Others said the story made the couple, who share two kids—daughter Luna, 3, and son Miles, 1—even more endearing. “I did not think I could love you two more, then you go and do this,” wrote another.

As for John’s response to the praise?

“I love you my baby. See you tonight,” he wrote in response to Chrissy’s tweet.

Even though John’s grand gesture was only made known to us through his wife’s tweet, he has spoken candidly about his admiration of his wife before. During the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in 2018, he made a speech about award-recipient Chrissy overcoming her Imposter Syndrome and it drove her (and us) to tears.
